Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata

Open Question

2007 Sonata Running Lights stay on when we shut the car off. Also has a smell of a blown out candle when you turn off the motor. Doesnt come up on a diagnostic test when check engine light is one. Running lights will sometimes go off and other times they will not. What could cause this?

SOURCE: with the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off

hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck

SOURCE: Tail lights stay on

There is a switch that should shut these off when the front door is opened. Have the dealer fix under warranty.

SOURCE: rough idle no check engine lights sometimes runs

It sounds like your engine is gummed up. I recommend that you get two bottles of a fuel additive called seafoam and dump them into the gas tank. In no time, your engine will be purring again.

2007 suzuki forenza brake lights will stay on after i shut the car off and there is a burning smell in the trunk any help?

Are they always on? If so, your break switch button is probably stuck. It is located above the break pedal. It is a chrome looking round cylinder. The break pedal hits the button and turns the light on. That button may be stuck. You can try to loosen it up.

Weird electrical glitches

It sounds like the sonata computer might be corrupted. Do you use mp3, or ipod to play music through your stereo and or do you play burned music? It's my belief that the computer can become corrupted from maleware code. Also do you know if there was any command start installed or removed? Command starters are notorious for causing computer glitches and malfunctions in the locking mechanisms.
