My brake lights sometimes (but not always -- it is an intermittent fault) will not turn off even when my foot is not on the brake and also when I turn off the car. This is a serious problem as the battery then goes dead. An additional problem is that when the weather is cold (below about 20F), my headlights will not turn off automatically when I turn off the ignition. Again, this is a problem as it can cause the battery to drain, but at least with this issue I can turn off the lights manually during cold weather. I have taken my car to to dealer to have this fixed, but they have not been able to get either of these issues (headlights and brake lights not turning off) to happen when they have the car, so say that if they can't see the problem happening, they can't fix it. Has this happened to anyone else? Do you know the cause (and more importantly, how to fix it)? Thanks!

Yesterday night my car battery went dead . I got somone to give me a JUMP , but it wouldn't stay charged for me to get to my house. People keep telling me it could be my alternator . I just feel like I need a new battery . Can anyone help . I have to be back at work Tuesday . Everything came back on like my radio, and windows are able to roll donw after I done had it off for a little while. Then my headlights and ALL lights around my car start to fade out.

Search Results for "I HAVE A 2002 HYUNDAI ELANTRA GLS , AND I WENT TO THE CAR WASH THE OTHER DAY AND AFTER I WAS DONE I TRIED TO START MY CAR, AND IT WOULDNT START. SO THEN I GOT A JUMP TO SEE IF IT WOULD START , AND STILL NO START. THEN GOT ANOTHER JUMP AND IT WOULDNT START. SO I TOWED IT HOME. I TOOK THE BATTERY TO THE AUTO STORE TO HAVE IT TESTED AND MY BATTERY IS LIKE NEW THE MAN SAID . AND THERE'S GAS IN THE CAR SO I DONT KNOW WHAT COULD BE WRONG. PLUS WE CHECKED ALL THE FUSES AND EVERYTHINGS OK. IM THINKING MAYBE THE ALTERNATER, STARTER, OR FUEL PUMP. PLEASE HELP , WHAT DO I TRY NEXT???"::

I see a straight bar with bushings at both ends, when I look up rear control arm for part they are all curved. what am I looking ar?

Now the other headlight is not working either. I checked the fuse under the hood and it looks good. Could it be a relay?

car is running very rough when idling. smooth's out when accelerating changed air filter what else could be the problem.

Ok just spent hours checking parts and found the culprit to this code in my 1996 Hyundai elantra.

Micro fissure cracks in the ceramic of the spark plug. This was noticed while cleaning the plugs. Changed plugs and still had a misfire and code.

Little more testin of cylinder compression, IAC cleaning and checking, ignition block testing, fuel filter check, fuel pump filter check, plug wire check, spark plug gap anf cleaning and checking, and was in in the process of getting ready to remove catalytic converter when I had a thought all this could be some simple vacume leak. Checked PVC valve.

Well what do you know bad PVC, changed it and the car runs great.

So over cap code P304 Cylinder misfire - CHECK YOUR PVC VALVE!

I felt like an idiot after spending 5 hours tearing everything down and testing and was at wits end and about to pull the cat.

I have had to have my sun roof (factory installed) repaired 3 times in 1 1/2 years on my new Elantra. Over time it begins to close properly and entirely. I am now being told by my dealership that they can no longer get parts because Hyundai is aware of this problem on the sun roof and are in the process of working on a new part and will have a recall when the part is ready. Dealership could not say when the recall would be. They say this is a common problem and Hyundai is aware. Is this true?

when I am accelerating it runs o.k. just when it is idling or low acceleration.
