Question about 2006 Hyundai Elantra
For a 2006 Hyudai Elantra, approximately how much should it cost to replace a break switch? All of the brake lights are out.
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.
