2009 Hyundai Santa Fe Problems

Engine May Stall or Fail to Start Due to a Failed Crankshaft Position Sensor

The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.

Rough Idle Due to Faulty EGR Switching Valve

On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.

Poor Shift Quailty of Automatic Transmission

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 Santa Fe Recalls

The 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 System May Not Properly Detect a Front Seat Passanger

Hyundai is recalling certain 2007 through 2009 Santa Fe models because the air bag system may not properly detect a smaller occupant in the passenger seat. Improper detection may cause the front passenger airbag not to deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the front passenger. Dealers will update the occupant classification software to correct this concern. The Hyundai recall number is 105.

After explaining the problem to the guy who came, he first wanted to take a look ...

I did replace the brake pads mysel...
