Question about 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Santa Fe and my oil light comes on when I stop. I've checked the oil and it's fine and I don't seem to have a leak as there's no sign of this on the road where I park it. There is a problem with the speakers, they work intermittently - every time I go over a bump only one speaker will work or all of them come on so could the oil light be down to the wiring. Jenny.

Low oil pressure is a serious problem and should be checked right away. Either the oil pressure sending unit is sending the wrong pressure, or the oil pressure is too low due to an engine problem. A shop will be able to verify the actual oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. If the pressure is really okay, they can then change the sender or look for a faulty oil pressure gauge. If the pressure is really low, meaning that the sender was correct, the cause for the low pressure must be dealt with before expensive engine damage occurs.

Possible causes for low oil pressure include: wrong grade or weight of oil used, clogged oil filter, clogged oil pick-up strainer, engine running too hot, oil pump worn or damaged, idle speed too low, and oil pressure gauge working improperly.

It is doubtful that the oil pressure and the speaker problems are related. Engine controls and indicators and body accessories are generally on completely separate electrical circuits.

Check the ignition system. It may work fine while idling but fail during acceleration. Problem areas to be inspected include the spark plugs, spark plug wires and vacuum hoses. You should look for spark plugs that are covered in oil or sediment or damaged, spark plug wires that have damaged insulation, and vacuum hoses that are unplugged or leaking. The use of a fuel additive that contains both fuel injector cleaner and water remover can fix minor problems due to water in the gas and fuel injector clogs. Check the fuel pressure to test the injection system to assure proper pressure.

Auto has 23K and cruse stopped working. checked

I had the same problem with my 2003 santa fe. Do you have any brake lights out in back? Weird as it is, as soon as I fixed a burned out brake bulb, my cruise worked again. The only relation I can think of is that tapping the breaks causes cruise to turn off - so maybe a broken brake/tail light passes a singal to cruise control from some reason???
