2004 Hyundai Elantra Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2004 Hyundai Elantra
- Air bag light comes on. Stereo turns off, air conditioner gets very weak, dash lights dim. Haven't had the car die while driving, but battery is dead after I turn it off and try to restart it. Replaced battery, problem happened shortly after.
- air conditioner stops at highway speeds
- I have a freeze plug that is corroded and leaking coolant. How much for repair
- Anyone else? Brake lights-one side went out other stays on permanently
- Is it necessary to have a brake system flush?
2004 Hyundai Elantra Problems
If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

Brakes started pulsating at 75,000 and had to replace the front rotors and pads. Otherwise, have had no problems at all with this little car.
