Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata
Brake lights do not go on when the brake pedal is pushed in. all of the other tail lights functions work. checked fuses and even put new fuses in the brake function slots but no change. the brake light function fuses seem to all be located in the component fuse compartment under the hood but i have checked the fuse panel along the left side of the steering column in the cab as well. i checked other fuses as well but all pertained to lighting functions and all seemed to be good. Tail light and brake light bulbs are the same bulb (two elements in each of the four lights - one for tail, one for brake). I have not tried to change a bulb as all four bulbs going at once seemed unlikely. car does not seem to have any other problems mechanically or electrically.
This sounds like a bad brake light switch, this switch is located on the bracket that holds brake pedal,you can test for power at switch,also if you remove connector and jump terminals with a wire and see if lights lite, if lights light then switch is bad,

My brake lights would not go out on my 2006 Sonata and when I took it to the dealership I found out that there was a recall on a small part under the brake that controled the lights. They fixed it for free and I havent had a problem. I would check the dealership and see if thats part of the recall
