Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Cruise Control does not work

I noticed it after installing an after market alarm, but I am not sure if this was the cause, since a couple of weeks passed by until I noticed. It will not work. When I press the switch, not even the indicator light goes on. Fuses are ok.

Sounds like the control switch on the steering wheel has gone bad. Check the connector to the Cruise Control actuator located under the hood & inspect the pins/connections. Any corrosion or signs of over-heating? If not, most probable cause is the control switch on the steering wheel. If not, then take veh to Hyundai Service Center and pay diagnostic fee... they will give you a estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc), and that way you'll know exactly what's wrong and what's required to fix it.

Why do brake lights stay on while diving and cruise control doesn't work?

If the brake light switch connected to the brake pedal has failed, the brake lights are stuck on which fools the cruise control into disengaging.

Aftermarket alarm causing hazard lights to flash and no start

Sounds like your alarm is setting off the anti theft and not allowing it to start. Have who ever installed the alarm fix the problem.

There is a hood open switch on many after market alarms that can cause the condition you speak of.

Also there is a chance that the engine starter solenoid internal contact has failed for the start circuit. You can check this with a healthy screwdriver by shorting from the positive lead to the terminal. (YES It SPARKS!) If the starter engages then the solenoid is fine. If it does not then the the solenoid has failed.

Another thing that can cause what you speak of is the alarm motion sensor.

If you really want it fixed... like NOW go to any auto alarm installation shop, grab an install tech and take him to your driveway.... (with a borrowed car if need be) My bet is he will have you going in less than 15 mins and for a reasonable charge.
