Question about 2000 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Dome lights won't come on

I was installing a new car stereo, and my friend advised against disconnecting the battery. We got everything on and working, and when I went to put the stereo and the rest of the dash unit back in, I heard a pop and all the lights in the cabin of the car went out. My headlights and tail lights work, and the car starts fine. I simply don't get lights on the inside. I've searched both the inside (by the driver door) and outside (under the hood) fuse boxes for the fuse for the interior lights, but to no avail. Help!!

Check it very careful use a test bulb to verify the fuse connection, sometimes visual checking alone is not enough.

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500. I installed an aftermarket stereo and now my dome light and cargo light will not work. What would the problem be?


Does the stereo light up when you turn it on? If not, find the fuse for 'dome'. If it does, check the wires to the stereo and see if you disturbed a connection to the dome and cargo lite.

No power on dome light and stereo


Sounds like you may have a short in the ignition switch. I advise replacing this. If the problem is still there, it may be that the stereo was wired wrong, or there is a short or broken wire further down.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

This could be a component or a wiring fault. It is easier to check the components so:-

1)Remove lamp and insert new fuse.

If fuse goes again, disconnect stereo, replace lamp and fuse.

If fuse does not blow the dump stereo.

If fuse goes again, trace the wiring and

If it still blows, then the stereo is likely to be faulty

After installing a new stereo in my 2004 VW the check engine light came on.


The most likely cause is an incorrectly wired iso plug on the stereo ,your vehicle has a Diagnostic com wire to the factory fitted stereo system if you short this wire it will cause various problems such as Mil lamp on etc.
I would advise youto disconnect the new stereo and then have it fitted professionally by someone who knows which wire to disconnect to stop the Mil coming on.

Battery dies over night


It's probably the door light. This is a common problem and more can be found at TEAM SWIFT. You can disconnect the wire from the door jamb or turn the dome light to the off position. TEAM SWIFT has this common fix more in detail.
