Stinking smell inside Elantra 2001 model

When I open the doors, I get extremely stinking smell. If some got an idea, please let me know. I appreciate it. Many mechanics do not seem to know what is going on. They go around the car, but don't seem to get it!

    This smell is there for the last 4 years or so. It smells like coolant?

    I am not good with car-repairs. Also, we all "feel" the car-repair places are not likable as "we feel rip-off". I am trying to get an idea of the problem, so that I can talk to our local car repair guys.
    Thanks

Car key got broke inside car door


Try spraying some type of lubricant like wd40 in the key hole and using a small metal pick to dig the broken part out. You can also use skinny flat piece of metal like a nail file and place a strong magnet on the end of it with any luck it will grab the broken piece of key. Good Luck

2001 Hyundai Elantra door locking problem


there is a short or a signal from the un-locking switch that is triggering your locks.

you have a switch manually to lock and un-lock your doors, the unlocking circuit is making contact.

you can try playing with your switch to un-short the switch or open it up ang check it.


tnx 4 using fixya,
