I would agree that it's the alternator. However, before you SPEND money, VERIFY that it's the alternator. Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). Afterward, you can fix it yourself.

Ghost is right, it is the alternator. That is the same problem I had with my 2000 sonata as well. When I asked the Hyundai dealership that I have my Sonata serviced at why both lights come on, it is becasue they are both on the same circuit.

Battery light stays on after changing battery,alternater & plugin.


Is the system charging? You should have 14.2 14.6 volts at the battery. The charge light is controlled by the alternator internally. If the charging system is working, you could have a bad diode inside the alternator keeping the light on or a short/grounded circuit to the battery light

Brake and battery light came on while driving.


The battery may not be charging, alternator, cable, or fuse problem.
The brake system may be low on brake fluid. The parking brake switch may be telling the light the parking brake is on.

Abs and tcs lights on what do they stand for?


ABS stands for anti lock brake system.
TCS stands for traction control system.

I recommend having your abs system diagnosed for faulty sensors, control module, etc. With the abs light on the traction control system is designed to disable because it utilizes the abs system to automatically help control your vehicle in loss of traction situations.

Not enough information in your description of the problem. You start with "brake light still don't work after.... "??? after WHAT? Then you write ..

Bulb replacement in hyndai sonata high mounted rear stoplight


Research revealed no available illustration of procedure. If memory serves, there are two 'access' plates on either side of the lamp assy (popped out with small screwdriver) and two phillps screws retaining the assy in place. Remove the access plates (plastic) and the screws behind them.. access is gained.

Change a 2007 Hyndai Sonata brake light


Get in the trunk, take loose the screws, lift the lens holder, change the bulb. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as it sounds. The hole for the lamp position is offset about 4-5 inches. You cannot get to the bulb to remove it without taking loose the lens holder. You have to remove 2 screws to do that, one of which is hidden by a piece of foam tape.
Also it is impossible to remove the lens holder without slipping a finger underneath to turn the bulb holder. I had to cut off a portion of the bulb holder to slip the lens back in. I left the screws out, as it is impossible to put them back after removal. No wonder the dealer wants $50 to change the bulb-it took me about 45 minutes.
