I have a '03 Sonata. One of the brake lights went out when it was new. I had the dealership fix it since it was still under warranty. Since then, I have replace it 4 or 5 times. First other problem was the cruise did not work when my lights were on. Next, the dash light started coming on when I hit the brakes. Then, the parking lights would come on when I hit the brakes. After that, the cd player started turning on and off by itself. All of this has been going on for 3-4 years. I had searched the web, and everybody said they had problems but the dealerships could not resolve them. I didn't have the money to try to get it fixed. It would not pass inspection last week because the brake light was dim. The mechanic said the wrong light was in there (remember, first replaced by dealership, then I bought lights from auto parts store that specified my make and model). He grabbed up what he knew was the right bulb, and THAT FIXED ALL MY ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS! I hope this info will help some other folks.

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.

Why do my headlight burns out often


My personal experience the headlights burn out frequently because it's a Hyundai. I have a 2005 Elantra (105K) and a 2007 Santa Fe (135K), and I have replaced headlights in both of those cars more than all of the 20+ other cars I have owned in my lifetime. I never touch a new bulb when replacing them, the sockets are all fine, they're just Hyundais and electric/wiring reliability is not in their capabilities. I keep a spare set of headlights in each of the cars. It's so bad that the cashier at the parts store asked me about 5 years ago if I had a Hyundai. She had the same problem with her Elantra.

Bulbs keep burning out


When you replace headlights in today's cars, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB!. Handle the bulb only with the packing material the bulb ships in, or with a clean dry cloth.The oils in your skin will cause premature failure of the bulb.

Also, check the sockets (car side) carefully to make sure they are not burned.

Headlights for 2006 hyundai sonata


Answer
1. Remove the dust cover from behind the bulb that needs replacement.
2. Unplug the bulb.
3. Taking note of the bulb orientation, unhook the bulb retaining clip from the tang that holds it in place.
4. Remove the bulb.
5. Install the new bulb in the same orientation and clip in place.
6. Reconnect the electrical connector to the bulb.
7. Reinstall the dust cover.

Alternatively, if the bulb is burned out and you have less than 60,000 miles, you should take the car to the dealer and let them do it for free for you.
