    The battery light comes on and there is a smell of electrical wires burning. The battery tests fine if the battery light doesn't come on but if it does then it tests "weak".

    If the battery light comes on when the engine is at low revs. It could be a symptom of a failing alternator.

    How do you know the battery is OK?

    Regards

SOURCE: power steering is leaking 2002 Hyundai Sonata gls

usually the high pressure hose will leak, the hose will be wet; that would indicate a leak. sometimes the steering rack will leak if you have alot of miles
to locate these items go to an auto parts box store and look at the manual for your car

SOURCE: Condition of timing belt on 2000 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6?

If you can just remove the upper timing belt cover is about the only way, also timing belt replacement or 48 months which ever comes first, good luk and hope this was very helpful.

Replace alternator on 2002 Hyundai Sonata LX with ABS


I pull the drive axle loose to remove the alternator, it gives you just enough room to wiggle the alternator out, OR you can remove the upper mount and jack the engine up and drop it down by the oil pan.

2002 Hyundai Sonata "battery" light


The Alternator may not be charging at the proper level. If the car is running while you're trying to open the sunroof or turn on the defroster, then the battery light has nothing to do with those and they are separate problems. Have an ASE Certified mechanic check the charging system.
