    Same headlight problems and turn/stop light problems burning out. Is there a solution?

  • Anonymous Mar 07, 2009

    I have the same problem with the same car but my problem is only with the fog lights. What i did is i took it to the dealer and i said fix it and they did.

  • Anonymous Apr 05, 2009

    I actually just failed inspection (Mass) because of my fog lights being out. I want to remove them entirely since they keep going out and it's expensive to keep fixing. I need to do it this weekend, though, since I'm not allowed to drive the car until the problem is "fixed".

GENERATOR OUTPUT LINE VOLTAGE DROP TEST

This test determines the condition of the wiring from the generator "B" terminal to the battery (+) terminal (including the fusible link). 1. Be sure to check the following before testing: a. Generator installation and wiring connections b. Generator drive belt tension c. Fusible link d. Abnormal noises from the generator while the engine is running. 2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. 3. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 4. Disconnect the generator output wire from the generator "B" terminal. Connect a DC test ammeter with a range of 0-100A in series between the "B" terminal and the disconnected output wire. (Connect the (+) lead of the ammeter to the "B" terminal. Connect the (-) lead of the ammeter to the disconnected output wire.) An inductive-type ammeter which enables measurements to be taken without disconnecting the generator output wire is recommended. Using this equipment will lessen the possibility of a voltage drop caused by a loose "B" terminal connection. 5. Connect a digital-type voltmeter between the generator "B" terminal and the battery (+) terminal. (Connect the (+) lead of the voltmeter to the "B" terminal. Connect the (-) lead of the voltmeter to the battery (+) cable.) 6. Reconnect the negative battery cable. 7. Connect a tachometer or the scan tool. 8. Start the engine. 9. With the engine running at approx. 2500 rpm, turn the headlights and other lights on and off to adjust the generator load on the ammeter slightly above 30A. Limit: max. 0.3V When the generator output is high and the value displayed on the ammeter does not decrease to 30A, set the value to 40A. Read the value displayed on the voltmeter. In this case the limit becomes max. 0.4V. 10. If the value displayed on the voltmeter is still above the limit, a fault in the generator output wire may exist. Check the wiring between the generator "B" terminal and the battery (+) terminal (including fusible link). If a terminal is not sufficiently tight or if the harness has become discolored due to overheating, repair, then test again. 11. After the test, run the engine at idle. 12. Turn off all lights and turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. 13. Disconnect the tachometer or the scan tool. 14. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 15. Disconnect the ammeter and voltmeter. 16. Connect the generator output wire to the generator "B" terminal. 17. Connect the negative battery cable.

    OUTPUT CURRENT TEST
    This test determines if the generator output current is normal.



    1.

    Before testing, be sure to check the following :



    a.

    Generator installation and wiring connections



    b.

    Battery



    c.

    Generator drive belt tension



    d.

    Fusible link



    e.

    Abnormal noise from the generator while the engine is running
    The battery used should be slightly discharged. The load needed by a fully-charged battery is insufficient for an accurate test.



    2.

    Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.



    3.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable.



    4.

    Disconnect the generator output wire from the generator "B" terminal. Connect a DC test ammeter with a range of 0-100 A in series between the "B" terminal and the disconnected output wire. (Connect the (+) lead of the ammeter to the "B" terminal. Connect the (-) lead of the ammeter to the disconnected output wire.)
    Never use clips. Use bolts and nuts to connect the line. Otherwise, loose connections (e.g. using clips) may lead to a serious accident because of high current.
    An inductive-type ammeter which enables measurements to be taken without disconnecting the generator output wire is recommended.

    c



    5.

    Connect a voltmeter with a range of 0-20V between the generator "B" terminal and the ground. (Connect the (+) lead of the voltmeter to the "B" terminal, and then connect the (-) lead of the voltmeter to the ground.)



    6.

    Connect the negative battery cable.



    7.

    Connect a tachometer or the scan tool.



    8.

    Leave the hood open.



    9.

    Check that the reading on the voltmeter is equal to battery voltage.
    If the voltage is 0 V, the cause is probably an open circuit in the wire or fusible link between the generator "B" terminal and the battery (+) terminal.



    10.

    Start the engine, and turn the headlights on.

    11.

    Switch the headlights to high beam, turn the heater blower switch to high, increase the engine speed to approx. 2,500 rpm, and read the maximum current output displayed on the ammeter.
    Limit : 70% of nominal output current



    a.

    For the nominal current output, refer to the Generator Specifications page EE-2.



    b.

    Because the current from the battery will drop soon after the engine is started, steps 10 and 11 should be carried out as quickly as possible in order to obtain the maximum current output value.



    c.

    The current output value will depend on the electrical load and the temperature of the generator body.



    d.

    If insufficient electrical load is used while testing, the specified level of current may not be output, even though the generator is normal. In such a case, increase the electrical load by leaving the headlights on with the engine off to discharge the battery before testing.



    e.

    The specified level of current may not be output if the temperature of the generator body and/or ambient temperature is too high. In such a case, allow the generator to cool before testing.



    12.

    The reading on the ammeter should be above the limit value. If the reading is below the limit value and the generator output wire is OK, remove the generator from the engine and check the generator.



    13.

    Run the engine at idle speed after the test.



    14.

    Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.



    15.

    Disconnect the tachometer or the scan tool.



    16.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable.



    17.

    Disconnect the ammeter and voltmeter.



    18.

    Connect the generator output wire to the generator "B" terminal.



    19.

    Connect the negative battery cable.

    REGULATED VOLTAGE TEST
    This test determines if the voltage regulator is correctly controlling the generator output voltage.



    1.

    Be sure to check the following:



    a.

    Generator installation and wiring connections



    b.

    Battery fully charged



    c.

    Generator drive belt tension



    d.

    Fusible link



    e.

    Abnormal noise from the generator while the engine is running



    2.

    Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.



    3.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable.



    4.

    Connect a digital-type voltmeter between the generator "S" terminal and the ground. (Connect he (+) lead of the voltmeter to the "S" terminal. Connect the (-) lead of the voltmeter to a secure ground or to the battery (-) terminal.)



    5.

    Disconnect the generator output wire from the generator "B" terminal.

  • Kleanthis Mavropoulos
    Kleanthis Mavropoulos Jun 05, 2008




    6.

    Connect a DC test ammeter with a range of 0-100A in series between the "B" terminal and the disconnected output wire.
    (Connect the (+) lead of the ammeter to the "B" terminal. Connect the (-) lead of the ammeter to the disconnected output wire.)



    7.

    Reconnect the negative battery cable.



    8.

    Connect a tachometer or the scan tool. Check that the reading on the voltmeter is equal to the battery voltage.
    If the voltage is 0 V, the cause is probably an open circuit in the wire or fusible link between the generator "S" terminal and the battery (+) terminal.



    9.

    Make sure all lights and accessories are off.



    10.

    Start the engine.



    11.

    Increase the engine speed to approx. 2,500 rpm.



    12.

    Read the voltmeter when the current output of the generator becomes 10 A or less.



    13.

    If the voltage reading conforms to the value in the voltage regulation table, the voltage regulator is operating normally. If the voltage is not within the standard value, a malfunction of the voltage regulator or of the generator exists.

    MOST POSSIBLE: a malfunction of the voltage regulator or of the generator exists.

Most likely it is a 4 speed automatic over-drive transmission. You can shift it thru the gears if you want a sporty feel, but not needed. The fog light bulbs may be burned out, a bad fog light fuse or switch. Does the switch illuminate when you switch it on?

Are you touching the glass part of the bulb with your fingers? The oil in your skin will blow them right away. The lighters are common to blow the fuse with a bad phone charger cord. Can't help with the air bag. Good Luck!

How do I replace fog lights on my 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe?


Look up into the bumper and see if you can access the fog light. The bulb should just twist out of the back. If not, the assembly should either pop forward or back to come out. I've heard though, that many santa fe's require the removal of the entire front bumper fascia just to get to the bulbs in which case you'd have to remove your headlights to get to the screws holding the bumper fascia on

Hyundai Sonata 2003 FOG LIGHTS DONT WORL


No.. power is supplied to both bulbs in parallell... when power is present at one, it's also present at the other. Clarification needed - have you checked to see if you have power (battery voltage) and ground at the fog lamp connectors?.. if so, the problem is the bulb(s) it/them/self/selves. If you have an ohm meter or a test light, it's a simple procedure. Check the bulbs with an ohm meter. Then using a test light (12 volt, make sure the test light bulb is good by connecting it to a charges 12 v battery) connect the test light bulb to each of the fog lamp connectors with the fog lamp sw turned on and the ignition key in the 'run' position. If the test light illuminates at both fog lamp connectors, then the problem is in the fog lamp bulb(s) themselves. If not, there's a wiring/control circuit problem.

Adjust Headlights Horizontally in Hyundai Sonata 2002


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
