first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.

SOURCE: 2002 hyundai accent codes p1529 and p0734

P1529 means nothing more than the TCM (transmission control module) has requested that the ECM (engine control module) turn on the check engine lamp.
P0734 basically indicates that your transmission is slipping.
You need to take this car to an authorized repair center for hyundai cars. Replacing the filter and fluid on the transmission might save this transmission but I would be willing to bet that a total transmission rebuild is in order.

Good Luck

SOURCE: how do i change the front brake pads

First make sure you have the park brake on
Raise the front end make sure to support with jack stands
Remove tires

this should leave the front brakes exposed

there are two slide bolts holding the caliper in place loosen both and remove

then wedge a screw driver between the inner pad and the rotor and lightly pry towards you to take some pressure off of the caliper

you should now be able to lift off the caliper it will still have the brake line attached to it so be sure to secure it to something ie a bungie strap to the suspension or something do not just let it hang by the brake line

slide out the old pads out of the caliper mounting braket

now take a caliper press and push the piston back into the brake caliper use the old inner pad do not push directly on the caliper piston (if you dont have a caliper press just substitute a c clamp it works fine)

if replacing the rotors remove the caliper bracket once again two bolts

remove the caliper bracket

remove rotor

Make Sure to inspect the caliper for leaks or damage

To install reverse and youll be done before you know it

Make sure to lube slide pins with a small amount of brake grease and make sure the caliper moves freely apon installation

After you have done both sides

set down car and slowly pump the brake pedal about 15 times to close the distance between caliper piston and brake pads thats all

I hope this helps

P0734 - 4th gear incorrect ratio. P1529 Malfunction Indicator Lamp Request. Problem is in the transmission.
Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

SOURCE: 2005 hyundai Accent, can't shift out of park and no brake lights

SORRY 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 if it worked good luck

2005 Hyundai accent gear shift stuck in park after brake failure

Make sure the brake lights are coming on if not the release solenoid that unlocks park gets no power and will not release the shifter from park position. Also check the owner's manual for a possible way to override the solenoid lock.

2002 Hyundai Accent Problem: intermittent

What your car is shouting at you is that there is a low power problem. This may be simply a battery cable or a corroded connection but the systems are not able to get the power they need. I would take the vehicle to a AutoZone (or competitor) as they have free diagnostics for the battery, alternator and etc. They can also read the codes in the OBC module.

in order for your car to come out of park,the brake lights have to come on. it's a safety feature. are your brake lights coming on?if not then check for a blown brake light fuse in the fuse panel. if not that the brake light switch above the brake pedal may have gone bad.or another solution is, are you parked in a bind? with alot of pressure on the transmission? it will take 2 people to get it unstuck. 1st person in car with key on,2nd person rock car back and forth to free it from a bind. sometimes cars[automatics] do this.while the cars rocking try shifting out of park.hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Can't get the gear shift to come out of park.It acks like it is locked this is the first time this has happened.I was wonderig if there is a lock some where?This is a 2002 hyundai accent we just got it...

The shift lock solenoid attached to the interiors shifter near the cable is at fault
You need to replace it or disengage all apperatis to eliminate its functions
This solenoid is used only when you apply your foot on the brake so it releases to shift. It will be located inside the console near the gate for the park lock area. I always disconnect the plastic arm and remove it so I never need to depress the brake to shift

Transmission tends to malfuntion ...

Check the hydraulic clutch fluid, if it is full then either the clutch is not releasing fully, the fluid inside the transmission is low, if the fluids are not low then the transmission will have to be replaced or rebuilt.

When my car warms up it wont switch gears properly. It is an automatic and when it becomes warm it shifts into high gear, sits at 3500rpms and wont shift down.

Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
