Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Elantra

Brake lights won't go off

Starting last week, my Hyundai Elantra GLS (w/cruise control) brake lights stay on and won't turn off. I replaced the brake light plunger switch at the brake pedal, but the problem remains. I can't find any other electrical issue in the car, and the car has not been in any rear end accident/damage. Any ideas?

    Checked both old and new plunger switch, both pass continuity test. Switch only connects one way to wiring harness, so not in backwards.

    Emergency/hazards, reverse lights, and turn signals all still work normally too. Haven't replaced any of rear lights, all still original.

Learned to trouble shoot this in school, it might be that your lights and or switch are backwards, that was usually the case we discovered to be the culprit, and be sure you have the right bulbs and not some random generic compatible with these model cars, those bulbs will not be compatible with the current going thru them, if this does not help, you might want to try to reinstall the original components to back track your work, unfortunetlly electronics on cars is very time consuming as we learned in class.....hope this works or helps you...shia

I noticed my brake lights have stayed on the light in top of my trunk has stayed on which i think is only a brake light. I slammed on my brakes last week and this has been going on since. would could it be


Under the dash, push down the brake pedal and see if there is a switch that is being turned on, usually by a flat piece of steel on the shaft. If you slammed it, you might have broken the switch.

2002 Hyundai Elantra GLS: Cruise control stopped responding. Brake lights are working. What do I do to fix the problem?


It could be something a simple as the cruise control switch(s)... or it could be the Cruise Control Module located in the engine compartment. There's also a 'clock spring' in the circuit between the steering wheel & the cruise module. Note: there are two sets of contacts in the brake lamp switch, one set for the brake lights, the other for cruise control. Properly diagnose the 'CAUSE' of the problem. Otherwise you could end up buying parts you don't need. Proper diagnosis is a 'hands-on' activity, which is nearly impossible to achieve here under the FixYa website

My cruise control doesnt work. could it b a fuse out?


CRUISE CONTROL PROBLEMS CAN BE CAUSED BY FUSE OR FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH OR BLOWED FUSE TO BRAKE SWITCH.YOUR CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH COULD BE FAULTY.BEST TO TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP LET THEM HOOK CAR. TO DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT.BECAUSE CRUISE CONTROL IS ELECTRONIC AND PCM CONTROL.THE CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM USES INPUTS FROM VSS SENSOR .SO IT WOULD BE HARD TO FIX AT HOME YOU NEED EQUIPMENT TO FIX AND TROUBLE SHOOT.

01 Hyundai Elantra - Cruise Control Doesn't Work w/ Headlights On


I had same problem (cruise control/dashboard lights) for the past month with my 2000 Elantra. Replace the tail lights bulbs - my problem was caused by a problem with the double filament within the bulb. Essententially, there was a short when I turned on the lights or hit the brakes.

I did this last night and everything is working properly now.

2004 Hyundai Elantra.......Cruise control will not engage


make sure the cruise control cable to the throttle isn't too loose, if it is ok, check your brake switch. if it is sending the signal the brake is on it will not allow cruise to work and will do same thing as described about the set light.
