I had the same problem. I fixed it by removing the fuel filler door switch and cleaning/sanding the contacts. You don't have to remove the door panel, just remove the 4 screws on the door panel, reach up and pinch the sides of the switch and push it out. Use a small screwdriver to pry off the black piece holding the contacts (you might want to wear gloves) in place. Remove the contacts and sand them lightly. Very easy to do and completely solved my problem.

The fuel filter is located inside the gas tank and is not considered a routine maintenance item. If there is a ecm trouble code that indicates the filter or fuel supply is faulty, then the filter ahs to be removed from tank. I've added a discussion blog which addresses the fuel filter.

Is the fuel filter on the 2009 Hyundai Sonata that is to be replaced...

Tighten, your need to tighten the power steering belt a lil bit more, not to much to stretch it but just enough to overcome the resistance of the pump

Getting it back on track isn't as important as discovering and rectifying the reason it came of in the first place. Often it means removing the window, the tracks and winding gear and refitting with appropriate and copious amounts of lubrication, dabs of adhesive and correct adjustment.

Usually your RF (radio frequency) is messed up and sending invalid data to your computer. You will have to take your car to the dealer and have them reset it. Mine keeps coming on too. I keep asking them if there is a recall on this. Mine has come on 5-6 times. And if you live where it is cold, it will come on in the winter too. Don't worry about this one, when theh weather warms it will go off

Quit throwing money away at good parts. It's not the sensor. Have the codes read. Auto parts stores will read them for free. Check fuses..

It is located under the alternator. If you are looking down at the engine, it is to the far left. If you are under the caricon1.png it is to the far right before the oil pan. "You Tube should have a video on how to.

The ESC Off light comes on and pushing the ON/OFF switch does not put it out. If I shut the car off and re start, the dash light goes out sometimes; May return the next time I start the car..I've heard that the problem has something to do with the brake sensors. People usually notice that the brake lights go crazy as well.My 2009 is in the shop right now for my check engine light. My ESC light is also coming on as well. They ran the diagnostic and the only code that showed up was a faulty crankshaft sensor. I'm wondering if that is affecting the ESC. I know when the ESC comes on I get hesitation before it. That might be the crankshaft sensors doing. They said no other codes came up.This problem was recalled back in 2007-2008 and is presently being recalled on some vehicles. This appears to be a common problem with Hyundais who refuse to address the problem unless the cars are recalled. Please write the National Car Safety so that they can request a recall. Without these complaints, the recall will not occur and everyone will be paying out of pocket for a manufacturing defect.

Check your engine relays, they sometimes get hairline fractures that give this type of fault
