Power steering and emergency brake repair cost for 2001 Hyundai Accent

Question From nanthony on Power steering and emergency brake repair cost for 2001 Hyundai Accent

2001 Hyundai Accent - Power Steering and Emergency Brake Repair


The power steering went (abruptly) on my 2001 Hyundai Accent. I started the car, went to drive off, and there was smoke coming from the hood and it became hard to turn the wheel. When driving at faster speeds, it's not as difficult to turn.

I would like to know what the ballpark cost of repairing this, as well as the emergency brake (parts/labour).


Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

Anywhere from $100 to $2000. It needs to be inspected to determine what is wrong with it.

2005 Hyundai Elantra GT - Brake light switch?

Question From SkyCrystal on 2005 Hyundai Elantra GT - Brake light switch?

I have a 2005 Elantra hatchback and some time last week the brake lights decided to stop shutting off with the car. We decided to hold off on taking it in since this month is a little tight and have just been unhooking the battery with every trip. I know little/nothing about car repair and I'm afraid I won't be able to afford it from a shop. When taking in a friend's car, I asked the Meineke guy and he said it was probably the brake light switch and he'd have to run a diagnostic ($$$) and blah blah blah ($$$$$). Gah... how long can I keep doing this unhooking routine... will it do any sort of damage or can I hold off for a few more weeks? How difficult is it to repair a brake light switch? How expensive would it be to have it done? Is there a reliable freelance mechanic site that I could commission a hobbyist to take a look (like craiglist? Is that sketchy?)? Any advice?

I'm so unprepared for this kind of thing, just freshly out on my own in a new state. Any help would be appreciated!

Response From Hammer Time

I doubt the switch itself is the problem. Most likely the rubber bumper that it lands against has fallen off.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Yes! HT - I don't know which model(s) were known for just that. OP - needs to plain see what's going on first IMO. Some of these if a pedal is pulled UP by hand or foot for some odd reason the adjustment can be lost or part not line up to do it's thing. If you can't see it at all things have to be removed should be easy at risk of probably plastic push buttons that don't work twice well.

Try - it may not be difficult at all,

MANUFACTURER: Hyundai Caribbean-Puerto Rico

MFR'S REPORT DATE: July 15, 2009





Hyundai is recalling 3,011 model year 2005-2007 Elantra, Tucson, Sonata, Azera and Accent vehicles. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to fail to illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause the brake lights to remain illuminated when the brake pedal is released. A defective stop lamp switch may also affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature so the transmission would not be able to be shift out of the "PARK" position. It may also cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate, and it may not deactivate the cruise control when the brake pedal is depressed.

Any of these malfunctions could lead to a crash.

Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2009. Owners may contact Hyundai of Puerto Rico customer service at 787-999-4310.

Hyundai of Puerto Rico recall No. 91B026. Owners may also contact The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to

Response From SkyCrystal

Thank you so much! This is so helpful

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Near all are a switch that is above pedal on metal to body to make a connection and disconnect the connection. First diagnosis you should be able to do. Look up metal of brake pedal for a wired switch that a plunger is touching or pushing in when not touching brake pedal and extends out when pedal is pushed - simple look could tell.

Many adjustable. Matters if a switch if this has cruise control or not and either looks similar to this...........


To the left is the button when OUT lights on, pushed in by hand even light should shut off. Shouldn't take any tools for a look to see it at least,

'02 Hyundai Elantra brake drum clicking noise

Showing 5 out of 10 Posts | Show 5 Hidden Posts
Question From rfrainman on '02 Hyundai Elantra brake drum clicking noise

02 Hyundai Elantra has rhythmic clicking sound from the rear drums that corresponds with wheel speed. replaced pads about a year ago still clicked. Replaced drums and pads last week, sounded fine for a few miles then clicking back full force. Touch the brakes lightly no sound, as pressure added it gets louder, both wheels. It's driving me crazy, any help greatly appreciated.

Response From Discretesignals

Did you machine the drums? Was there any recent repair work done to the brake system prior to the clicking noise?

Response From rfrainman

Didn't machine drums, just got new ones. No other brake repairs.

Response From Discretesignals

When you typed pads, do you mean front brake pads or are you meaning shoes instead of pads? Do you feel any brake pulsations in the brake pedal or steering wheel when applying the brakes at highway speeds?

Response From rfrainman

Sorry, Yes I meant brake shoes. No pulsations. It's when the brakes are applied and maybe more of a thunk, people outside the car stare like "why the hell your brakes so noisy".
Hub caps are little plastic things held on by the lug nuts.
There was a little pulsation on braking but not since replacing drums and shoes.
Have I said that I hate this car-my wife bought it.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

?? It quit it for a while when new shoes and drums were done so I suggest going back and look at the brakes and hardware in general or anything out of ordinary. Consider new brake hardware if not done with the rears just because. Not usually very expensive and if some dinky something breaks it can ruin the brakes,


Response From rfrainman

Tom, I did "spring" for the new hardware. The only old parts are self adjusters and wheel cylinders.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

OK - But for the sake of just looking for something that isn't right it should still be ruled out. With drum off you could just nudge the parts around and see if something isn't right maybe?

A noise that changes with using or not using brakes is worth investigating for sure. Spin the bearing while there too. It isn't normal so something is going on,


Response From rfrainman

Mr. Greenleaf, I checked it all over and took it out to see what happens when I use the emergency brake. It made the same noise but then faded away as I applied more pressure. Now the noise has stopped! I can't believe it! I'm not sure why that solved it but it did. Thanks for time and expertise. I love CarJunky.


Response From Tom Greenleaf

I think OP means shoes? No matter, a wild arse guess that could elude easy discovery might be a hubcap if used on this car! If, if, if removing them makes the noise go away see what holds them on + where like a wire loop and clean them up or paint just that area then put them on another wheel.

Even less likely but happens. If a steel wheel with spot welds look for evidence of those not holding. Wheels do flex some with assorted forces on them,


Hyundai Brake discs - worn on not worn... (pic included)...

Question From fruitmousse on Hyundai Brake discs - worn on not worn... (pic included)...

Hi all,
just a quick question, the attached pictures are from my Hyundai. I recently took the car in for an MOT and it passed with no advisories. Couple weeks later I went to a different garage for a handbrake cable supplying/fitting. They told me both rear brake discs were worn and needed replacing. Just wondering what the general consensus is here as to the extent they actually needed replacing (i.e. definitely, maybe, not at all). It just confused me that it passed it's MOT two weeks prior.

Response From Hammer Time

Those rotors are severely rust pitted and yes, they would have to be replaced.

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

In the future could you please reduce the size of your pictures? It makes the whole thread hard to read.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

See this all the time in rusty New England.
Note the inside where pad or what's left of them isn't touching
entire rotor. That's a problem on top of just tossing rotors and pads
strongly suggesting you'll need calipers as well and might just as well do
flex hoses while spending the money for the full job.
MOT if brakes worked with their testing methods could either miss this
or they really worked well enough? Old, rusted where it really doesn't count, grooves if true you don't feel
and still work.

You just can't undo rust or add metal to refurbish rotors and some calipers, brackets can be too far gone as well.

Expect this to be costly but accidents are lots worse so it has to be done. Brakes this bad are subject to surprise lock ups or loss of braking power at all, all at once!


2000 hyundai elantra brakes and struts

Question From Guest on 2000 hyundai elantra brakes and struts

My 00 Hyundai has 160k miles with original brakes struts and springs. the time has come to change them. I want to change the rotors and drums also. Some0ne told me the rotors are pressed on and it has to be done by a dealer or auto shop. Is this true or can I change them like in the old days? Also the rear sway bar link attached to the strut I am unable to get the nut off any tips?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

My repair guide is asking 'inboard' or 'outboard', seperable or not hubs? I've never run into "inboard" rotors on a Hyundai. If they are the outboard, seperable type, it could be a DIY'er job. Otherwise, get out the checkbook. Wish I could be more help.
