The most widespread Hyundai recall, affecting up to 531,894 2005-2008 Accent, Azera, Elantra, Entourage, Santa Fe, Sonata, Tucson, and Veracruz models, is NHTSA Campaign 09V122000. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may prevent brake lights from illuminating when the pedal is depressed (the same switch may also cause them to stay lit after the brakes are released).
Owners may contact Hyundai Customer Service at 1-800-633-5151, call the NHTSA Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or visit WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV
If Hyundai says your VIN is not included in the recall, file a complaint with NHTSA.

Call a few dealers and find out the cost of the part, and the labor to do it.
Then call some parts stores and see how much they charge for the part, and call some local repair shops and ask them how much they would charge to install the part if you bring it too them. Most likely a generic switch, common to all Hyundai & Kia and who knows how many other brands. I would check however to make sure a fuse has not blown which could cause the same effect. Look in your manual and see what else is on the circuit for the brake lights and if that function is not working then most likely a fuse is to blame. Now if it is a fuse something is drawing too much current through it to cause it to blow, so you may have another defective part to figure out.

Low oil level in crankcase? Check that out since hard braking will cause the fluid to move to one end and perhaps give a low false reading.

My break lights don't work

You may have a blown fuse. Have you checked your fuses. If not, the fuse you will want to check is in the fuse panel inside the vehicle. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout. The fuse you will want to check is the fuse in the number 16 position. The other possible problem could be the brake light switch located up under the dash on the brake pedal shaft. I hope this helps.

Rear window break light

You either have a 'single filament' bulb installed in a 'dual filament' brake lamp socket ... OR .. you have a 'dual filament' bulb short circuited internally. Check your rear brake lamp bulbs (supposed to be 'dual filament' - two contacts on their bottoms). When you step on the brake pedal, do your dash lights LIGHT UP? A 'cross circuit' exists between brake lamp circuit and parking lamps circuit.

Hyundai elantra 2006 Squealling but stops when applying breaks.

Easiest way first.....if the belt is squealing (at idle), spray it with belt dressing or WD-40.....if it stops....may be the belt or the bearings in the alternator....if it continues only with driving.....brake wear indicator letting you know...brake job due!

Please let me know if this helps!!!
