TCS ABS lights on & alternator not fully charging

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. At 57,00 dealer serviceman replaced the alternator belt tensioning arm because these have been found to be faulty on many vehicles. At 70,100 miles the TCS & ABS lights on & off in no particular pattern. Replaced alternator due to low output, 2 weeks later replaced battery due to loss of charge, next week garage replaced alternator AGAIN. One week later the lights are back, the alternator is running at 12 volts and the lights are back. No computer codes from the lights. My local mechanic is "thinking" on it.

My dashboard lights (battery emergency brake light & air bags) are flashing on my dashboard while driving but go out when I come to a stop on my 2001 santa fe

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Recently had my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe on a rack to check tire problems. Spun the tires up in DRIVE to check roundness. Afterward the ABS and TCS OFF light came on and will not go off. Did running all 4...

the traction control uses a mechanism that if it senses that your tires are spinning it will automatically set your ABS to reduce the spin and give you more traction. you should have had the TCS off before you raised it up bbut i think you should look in your manual for a way to reset it if not you may have to take it to the dealership and have them reset it for you. hopefully you didn't damage the traction control sensor
