The light means several different things Did she just purchase gas? Sometimes if the gas cap was not tighten properly it will cause the service engine light to come on. Usually you can drive the car until you have it checked out especially if the car seems to be running ok.

No engine light on? Sounds to me like the bumpy road may be knocking something loose. It would help to know if you have fuel pressure when the problem arises.

Radiator fan doesnt switch off.


Many vehicles are set up to run the radiator(/ac condenser) fan whenever the air conditioning is on. Might this be the case here - is the air conditioning on when on the open road? Just a thought.

Engine temperature coolant sensor


Your description indicates the engine/coolant thermostat is faulty and allowing at least some coolant to continue circulating so at higher road speeds the engine is over cooled.

The air bag dash light stays on 2004santafe


Struggled with this problem on our 2005 Santa Fe since new. Wife weighs around 125. Light is sometimes on and sometimes off. Received a recall pertaining to this problem within a year of purchase. Recall called for resetting the algorithm that runs when the engine is started--at least that is what the service rep said.

Returned a 2nd time when this did not correct the intermittent problem. They said everything was working properly. They pointed out that the owner's manual calls for all passengers to be seated before" the engine is started, since that is when the sensing algorithm runs. This is certainly bad design logic. We all have passengers unboard and board while the engine is running. We surely do not turn the engine off each time these boarding events occur.

However, being a professional engineer, I conducted my own test. Sure enough, each time I noticed the light being "off" when my wife was in the passenger seat I pulled over to the side of the road, turned the engine off and restarted. The light went out every time!

Intermittent problems with safety systems are, in my opinion, the worst kind. Given this is integral to the design, I firmly believe the design is faulty. And worse, there is nothing Hyundai service reps can do to remedy the problem.

Best regards,
TF

The first thing you need to do is have the engine control module scanned for fault codes, you will need a code reader for an OBD2 engine control system, then post the fault codes here. I would also see if the engine has fuel pressure, the test port is in the pipe that supplies fuel to the injectors under the hood top of the engine.

If the problem is resolved, the light should go out on it's own once the car has had time to retest the evap system (couple hours on the road). If you want to clear the code immediately, take the car to autozone or advance and ask them to clear it. They offer a free scan service.
