SOURCE: Brake lights won't go off
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

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

Testimonial: "Thanks. Dealer hasn't been helpful. I'll see how far I can go before I run out of patiencs."
hi from uk the part you mention is the brake stop light switch it has a plug on 2xwire plug it operates by as pedal is pressed the plunger of switch moves out and connects the 2xwire circuit and so brake lights operate this switch simply unscrews from the pedal box/carriage after plug removed then the new switch screwed in place and with b/pedal off the switch is screwed to a point that if you press pedal down approx 1/2 " the switch plunger moves out and b/lights come on this is trial/error untill you are happy with the pedal movement down till lights operate SIMPLE ! hope this helps?

SOURCE: Rear brake lights stay on
Yes you can! The brake light switch is readily available from the dealer and I have had to replace several of those on that model Hyundai. I have however found that they are mounted a couple diffrent ways. On 1 style you have to turn the switch 1/4 turn counter clockwise and it just pops right out.Unplug the switch then. Installing it is as easy as putting it in the hole only far enough until the little button in the center of the switch is flush with the end of the switch. you will see it getting depressed by he brake pedal arm as you push it in. turn it clockwise to lock it in.
On the 2nd style there is a metal "u" shaped clip the retains it into the bracket. a 90 degree pick is sometimes useful to remove the clip. once removed then simply slide the switch out and unplug it. Reinstall the switch and once again only pushing it in until the button in the center is depressed and reinstall the clip. Dont forget to reinstall the plug into the switch. The hardest part of the whole operation is getting under the dash on your back (not easy for me but I am 6'3" tall). Sometimes a buck or stool that is aproximately the same height as the floor of the vehicle is very helpful in sustaining the position.
******Remember to tell the Dealer if you have cruise controll or not and bring the COMPLETE vin # of the vehicle with you to ensure you get the correct part for your model.****************
Good luck! Scott

may want to check the brake pedal switch located on top of the brake pedal arm. If all fuses looks good, replace the brake pedal switch, which can also cause to not shift out of park.
