    We have same problem. Hyundai Accent 2003 just stopped whilst driving on 13/10/2008 it has since been in two garages where pumps, injectors and electrics have been looked at and still no joy! It is now 1/11/2008 and we are running out of patience! The garage with our car is a Hyundai dealership which doesn't give us much confidence in a solution being found!

    Car shut off while driving & tries to start but won't. All fuel, sensors, & timing have been checked & are good. What else could it be??

    12/11/08 I have this happening right now, I was going 60 mphs on the highway and it just shut off, entire car no warning, then I started it back up, which it didn't want to stay started and kept shutting down, I get it going, pick up speed, same thing, shut off, finally I was able to get it going, and drive it with no problem for 15 miles at 60mphs, its pretty scary to have it just shut off, in high speed traffic, dark, and all your lights go off too, it has the potential for someone behind you to not see your dark car and smash into you.

Is it fuel injected because it sounds like the injectors are plugged or fuel filters.

Hi! If it seems to be much worse in the rain, why don't you have a mechanic test your engine for codes and functions after he rinses your engine down with water? Water won't hurt your engine. Good luck! Jack

SOURCE: infl rest brake light on

You don't say what year this is but the light means that there is an inbalance in pressure between the front and rear of the master cylinder. S o there is more pressure being send to the front brakes or the rears. And thats what this switch tells you . If the mechinac didn't see a problem with the system and you have antilock brakes it could be wheel speed sensors or the master cylinder is leaking between the front and the rear resiorvior interaily or there could be a load sensing valve incorperated in the system NLSV valve or you could have a bad brake line fitting that is leaking in a small way But if brake fluid can get out then air will get in the system. So i would say its a vary small leak at a fitting or line or the master brake cylinder is starting to go or VWS sensor or if equiped The LSV load sensing valve

How do I turn off the warning lights on my car if there is nothing wrong but the ABS light stays on?

Go to another mechanic. The light is on because there is an ABS problem. It is usually sensors and the error code will tell you which one.
