2009 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.

2009 Hyundai Elantra Questions

i recently changed my power plugs and plug coils and i noticed that the gear selector ligh blinks at random in addition to the 'D' highlight when i drive . This problem occurs as often as i drive . What could be the cause ?

also noticed when I activate the LOCK on my fob the lights don't blink on my car. ONLY when I UNLOCK it blinks. Does that have anything to do with my alarm going off? I hate to leave it unlocked. It goes off in the middle of the night/wee hrs off the morning, anytime it wants. HELP!!!!

I've tried replacing the fuse and that hasn't worked. Neither the driver's seat nor the passenger seat heats up any more. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what might be wrong?

2009 Hyundai Elantra Recalls

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.

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.

Love my Elantra Touring but an having issues with the clear coat on exterior handles and now the mirror peeling. Hyundai has covered the handles but are now not covering the mirrors. Very disappointed in how I am being treated. I do not take it to be washed often. They stated that they have never seen anything like it before.
