Rear lights have been stuck on for the past several months, even when my car if off (Causing me to unplug my battery everytime I turn the car off ). Just last night I found out my break lights don't work...


By any chance did you find urethane button parts on the drivers floor mat?

Look under the dash at the brake pedal lever just below the pivot point for a small plate with a hole in it. Normally the hole has a white/yellow urethane (rubber) button in it that makes contact with the brake light switch turning the brake lights off. If this button is missing the brake lights will stay on all the time and run your battery down. If your brake lights have been on steady all this time they could burn out too. The bad part is that no one knows when you are braking and you could get into an accident and worse, found liable for not having your car in a safe operating condition resulting in a ticket and so on. While you might be able to find a substitute for the button, that could damage the brake light switch plunger tip making matters worse. The button from Hyundai is very cheap and a quick fix.

My Hyundai Matrix car is not starting. When I turn the key to start the car it tumbles but won't turn on. I know that it is not the battery because we took the same battery and installed it into


got same symptoms with my hyundai matrix. Engine just stalled when car is not in motion (i.e traffic light, traffic jam), plus a cylinder misfire. I went online for some search (this site included). Then went for OBDII diagnostic.

Its the Crank Position Sensor/Crank Sensor/ CKP Sensor or whatever it is called. Had that replaced, and she's been back to well behaved since.

Will Hyundai accent 2003 turn headlights off automatically when ignition is off?


Does your vehicle have daytime running lights? If so, it's a far more complicated system and you'll probably have to take it to a shop.

Abs light wont turn off after fixing problem with a jammed rear break.


unplugging the battery should clear it, try doing it for 5 or 10 minutes just in case, the only other way is to clear it with a OBD2 capable scan tool, also there could be an issue you havnt noticed and that was caused due to jammed brake. some parts stores will let you use thier scan tool provide the car is at the store, i would scan it just to double check the code then use the scan tool to clear it. most shucks/oreilleys parts store can do this

My 2001 Hyundai Accent has 106,438 miles. Last night the check brake and check battery lights both came on. My battery is less then nine months old, but the car still has the original alternator.


the light that comes on just say "BRAKE", correct?

If this is the case first check the fluid level in the master cylinder. If it is low it will turn the light on. Top off with DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid only. Continue to monitor the level. if it goes down again within 10k miles than there is likely a leak somewhere.

The other thing that will case the BRAKE light to illuminate is if the E-BRAKE lever is not in its full retracted position.

If there was a problem with the charging system a light would come on that looks like a "battery". You should be able to see this light for a couple of seconds every time you turn the key on.

Brake and Parking lights won't turn off, even in "OFF" position - Drains battery


Get under the dash ad look at your brake pedal lever. You will see a stop light switch that screww into a bracket with a 'button' sticking out of it. if pulling up on the brake pedal (even slightly) solves your problem, then the switch needs adjusting closer to the brake lever. If adjusting does not stop problem then replacement of brake light switch may be required.

With the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off


hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck
