Question about Hyundai Accent
I was told that the multiple function switch on my 2003 Hyundai Accent was malfunctioning and that I needed a new one. My tail lights and the stop light above the trunk lid were staying on even with the light switch turned off. The technition unplugged the MF switch and plugged it back in, at which time the lights went off. Do I really need another switch, or will this fix the problem?
In my professional opinion, you have separate problems (if your description is accurate and haven't left anything out). # 1, the high mounted brake lamp is not part of the multi-function switch circuit (it's separate) - ONLY BRAKE LIGHTS.
#2 the other problem could very well be the multi-function switch because it controls the tail lamp relay in the Engine Compartment Junction box (under hood electrical box). When the parking lights are turned on, that high mounted 3rd brake lamp is NOT supposed to come on. It should only come on when the brake pedal is depressed. My professional experience/opinion, you either have the wrong bulb (single filament) in one of the brake lamp sockets in the rear of the vehicle, or one of those dual-filament brake lamp bulbs is shorted internally. You can verify this by pressing the brake pedal and see if the dash/cluster lights come on.
