Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent
My 2002 hyundai accent trunk light and trunk dash light stay on at all times except when applying the brakes. I have removed the light bulb which did nothing but save the bulb from burning out. trunk is securely closed so i'm assuming some kind of sensor or (gulp!) electrical problem.
I would have to agree it's an electrical problem. It might simply be a defective trunk lid latch switch. Here's the wiring diagram:

Had the exact same problem and found the solution...open the trunk and remove the interior trim behind the left rear taillight from the inside....look way down below and you'll see two connectors,one with lots of wires in it.its way down there,almost hidden...check the green and orange wire...pull it gently,mine just fell apart and was severely green and corroded...i wasnt able to get the original type connector so i just soldered in a piece of wire therefore bypassing the connector itself...chances are yours is the same...good luck...Scott

ORRY for my english written because im french canadian...
Anyways i had the same problem ,,, first it started with my rear tale light (breaking light) not working , than my stick was stock on parking but with some chance i was able to get around it quite easily by playing with the pedal by taping in and out till i would hear the solenoid valve popping than i kept my feet firmly on the pedal and also pushing further till i could switch to drive and this without using any pin insert situated near your shift stick.... also i had a trunk open indicator light popping off for no reason.. big trouble all at the same time (electrical problem) but dont worry
I went to a hyundai garage and there solution was to change the brake light( what a fraud) and change my burned brake light so i told them to only change my brake light .Soon after the brk light was replaced my parking stick was no longer stock on parking but i still had this trunk open indicator light going on ,,,,than i've read on internet this particular problem with the trunk light indicator and all those problem together,,,
The problem was a rusty connector situated at the left tail light ( inside the trunk).A lot of different wires are passing there (light switch) (wires of the trunk indicator light on your pannel
Because the connector was rusty it shorted my brake light ,,,,than because my brake light was burnt it activated a special mechanism that blocs your car at park( ((((((most car companies have this device since they figured driving with a car without brake light fonctionning properly could be dangerous))))) Than i had also had this trunk indicator light popping off triggered once again from those shorted rusty wires
you see all the trouble resulting a rusty connectors.... so i came back to the garage explaining to the guy what to do and what to look for concerning my trunk light indicator always activated on my panel.... ( i told him to wash the connector in and out..... soon after everyt thing turned out good as before..
What i didn't like about hyundai concessionary (7020 blvd henri bourassa) in Montreal city
is that they played dumb with me with out acknowledging the fact that the car could be stock on park because it s a security issue if the brake light are grilled,,, they tryed to ******* all the way , i swear,,, telling to change component that are not even compatible with the nature of the problem...
let me recap... rusty wires connector > shortened brake light> stick stuck in parking > trunk light indicator always on ...
ps: it had nothing to do with the fuse box by the way...
thank you hope it will help yall.....email if it worked good luck
