2007 Hyundai Elantra ProblemsCheck Engine Light and Transmission Won't Shift Correctly
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.

2007 Hyundai Elantra RecallsThe Brake Light Switch May Fail Prematurely
The affected vehicles are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.
The air bag control module may receive an unstable electrical signal from the driver's fore/aft seat position sensor. This could cause the driver's front air bag to deploy at the incorrect pressure in the event of a crash, increasing risk of injury to the driver. Dealers will reprogram the air bag control module with updated software to correct this issue. This recall is expected to begin during April of 2011. The Hyundai recall number is 100.
An electrical connector for the passenger front seat weight sensor is located under the center console. This connector can become contaminated, which could cause the passenger front air bag to deploy unnecessarily in the event of a crash. An unintended air bag deployment increases the risk of injury for an occupant in the front passenger seat. Dealers will install a protective cover over the affected connector to prevent contamination. This recall is expected to begin during April of 2011. The Hyundai recall number is 099.
