Re: Hyundai sonata 97
Yes, this is something you can do. Go to your nearest parts store and purchase a Haynes manual. I feel the Haynes manuals are far superior to the Chiltons manuals. You'll find the regular maintenance to your car is a very simple thing to do.

There is a little button undewr the hood, whose location is known only by Hyundai mechanics. I have been driving my Sonata for 11 years. You need to find a mechanic or service manager at a dealership who is willing to de-activate the trouble light without charging you $500.00 for that service. Many times the light is simply programmed to come on at intervals, like 30,000 miles or 12 months, or something like that. If you get lucky, you might be able to get the mechanic to show you where the button is located. Good Luck
this fault could be anything from the speedo not working to a vacumn diaphram split and as your not sure then i would ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as this needs a bonnet up and inspect to find the fault iam afraid
Theres is not much to do as far as replacing parts.
The owners manual that came with the vehicle will have a service interval for maintenance. Spark plugs, Fuel filter and air filter are good places to start. Also transmission fluid change and tire rotation. Of course this all depends on the mileage the vehicle has.
A tune up is generic. i don'y have specific part numbers or anything, but a tune-up generally consists of:
Spark Plug replacement (6 of them)
Spark Plug Wire replacement (6 of them)
Fuel filter replacement
Air filter replacement
On older vehicle, one would check all the components that involve spark, such as distributor cap & rotor. You might not have these, yours may be computerized, no service required until it fails.
A tune up would also include a review of all recommended service items as noted in your owners manual. Some of these might be mileage related. Such as, timing belt & transmission fluid replacement.
I normally do not do tune-up's unless the vehicle is having a problem. If you end up taking your vehicle to a mechanic to diagnose a problem, he will suggest many of these items before beginning his diagnosis.
you need to go to the Hyundai service center they can reset the radio I believe this is a security feature, you may be able to call the service center to find out the procedure to reset the radio, it is the original right ?
