Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

2006 Santa Fe Headlights not working suddenly.......Grrrrrrr

Ok, maybe the more we all describe whats working and whats not and whats happening when all of a sudden they work again.....maybe we can narrow this down. As for me, no headlights at all (hi or low) UNLESS I pull the turn signal switch towards me and hold it, then I can get high beam. Kinda what you would do if you were to flash someone, except holding it in manually til arriving at the destination. Obviously very annoying not only to me but to oncoming traffic. Now according to the other person who drives this car (and failed to mention to me this was occurring) this happened once before and when pulling into the driveway over a bump where the ditch culvert is, they came back on as if from the small jolt of the bump. Then continued working like normal til tonight. I know this is kinda wordy, but i figure if i can paint a clear picture, maybe it may help jog some ideas from the readers as to what maybe the problem and/or what could help solve the problem.

Nice picture indeed , I would say you have a loose connection.Could be a loose fuse ,Loose relay, Loose wiring , Loose connection the the switch.
The relay could be damaged inside.
I would suggest the Headlight relay as the probable cause.
Usually located in the engine bay in a black box with other relays and fuse's.
If you get someone to flash the headlight as you have described above and listen in the engine bay you should hear a clicking the relay you are looking for should be near that .
Hope this helps and let me know if you need more help.

What is the pink wire for in the stereo of a 2006 Hyundai Santa fe? and what do I connect the dimmer wirefrom the santa fe to in a new stereo


The pink wire from the stereo unit is often the dimmer wire, and is connected to a power feed from the vehicle's side lights. Not all stereos have a dimmer function however, and may not have this wire available.

Fuse location for headlight


There is a fuse, but only for both headlights, not just one. The headlight bulb must be out. Or the wire connector came off. Take care and God Bless.
