Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

I was driving when my warning park brake light as well as my warning battery light went on when I was pressing on the gas pedal. As soon as I let go of it, they turned off, as I pressed again then went on. My wipers were on since it was raining and being on the "regular" speed they were going really slow. I was able to get home, as soon as I arrived I tried to start my Santa Fe 2003, but nothing happen. What could be my problem ?? My alternator??

It's your alternator. I would get it fixed asap or you will be stranded. My mechanic said that mine caught a small fire when he pulled it in the garage. Auto Zone has rebuilt ones.

After starting transmission won't move out of park


It sounds like if this is a car with the brake interlock, meaning the car will not shift from park unless the brake is pressed, there is a malfunction there, some are electronic and it may not be getting power to it especially if there are other warning lights on the dash. It would help if you could give more details, like which lights are on. Most cars with a mechanical interlock will have a cable you can adjust either at the brake cable or at the shifter.

I have a 2001 pontiac aztek. The parking lamps and the tail lights will NOT shut off unless I disconnect the battery. The car also has a warning light that comes on and reads "Park Lamps Out". How do I fix...


Check brake switch near brake pedal most often it will be broken. sometimes you can try pulling up on the brake pedal to get the light to go out for a sec if that works it is the brake light switch. usually the warning light is tied to the actual light sockets it is also possible that the brake light switch went bad and from the tail lights staying on so long it may have melted the wires at the tail lights and now causing the warning light to light.

1998 Lincoln Town Car Signature. Parked it and now will not come out of park, and brake lights do not light up. Running lights, turn signals, hazards all work.


you have to press the brake pedal for your car to shift from park.what this does is actuate a solenoid on your steering column with the same electrical signal that lights your brake lights. since you have no brake lights either, all you have to do is replace the brake light fuse and you should be back in buisness.

MY WARNIND DASH PANEL BRAKE LIGHT WENT ON AND I CAN'T SHUT OFF THE WARNING CHIME OR SOUND1 HOW CAN I FIND FUSE OR DISCONECT THE WARNING SOUND. EVEN WHILE DRIVING IT IS STILL ON. THANK YOU *****


ello: First grab hold of the park brake pedal and pull it towards you, then open hood and visually make sure brake reservoir is full to the line, if either of the previous does not correct then you may have a failed park brake switch. Park brake switch is mounted on the park brake pedal assembly. If failed you should beable to unplug it and the light and buzzer should go off.

Parking brake light comes on while driving battery


your parking brake has a switch. when you push your pedal it activates the switch .if your pedal is slack it would let the switch turn on without you even touching the pedal.
battery light going on and off while your driving would usually indicate that your alternator is not charging properly. or loose battery cable.

THE BRAKE LIGHT WARNING LIGHT COMES ON AND THE DRIVER SIDE BRAKE LIGHT DOESN'T WORK. I CHECK AND CHANGED THE BULB AND IT'S NOT THE BULB. IF I TURN ON THE HEADLIGHTS OR PARKING LIGHTS, THE WARNING LIGHT...


well here's a start towards ur problem, due to the auto circuits u have an open return to the negative side of the battery. Have you done anything with the vehicle's systems before this started? the reason fo the strange lighting is that a positive voltage is being applied to what normally would be return side. You will need to get an electrical diagram if possible to pin point area if as previously asked didn't occur.
