Hyundai Sonata Problems
Parking lights not turning off intermittently or all the time. The common problem is with the cabin fuse box. Complete replacement of the assembly is necessary to fix the problem.
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.
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.

My 2015 Sonata is 10 months old and the battery has gone dead 3 times in the last 4 months and had the car towed twice and a new battery installed. Hyundai service department tells me I don't drive the car enough. Is this possible. 5500 miles.
Hyundai Sonata Recalls
The brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate, resulting in the stop lamp switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released. This will cause the brake lights to stay illuminated, and will allow the automatic transmission shift lever to be moved out of park without depressing the brake pedal. Dealers will replace the brake pedal stopper pad with an improved part free of charge to resolve the concern.
The anti-lock brake system warning light may not illuminate, and may fail to indicate a problem with the system to the driver. Dealers will update the anti-lock brake system control unit software free of charge to resolve the concern.
The front coil springs may fracture from corrosion that occurs due to exposure to road salt. Dealers will replace the front coil springs free of charge to resolve the concern.

When in park I revved the engine and the lights would go out then come back on. Later on in the evening I drove it again. The lights did'nt come on at first but then on again. So I stomped on the pedal to go and then it acted like my transmission was in neutral. the check...
I own a 2005 6cyl Sonata. Purchased it with 15k miles. Have taken outstanding care of it thru out the years.
