2001 Hyundai Accent Tail light and dash issues

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From lockeness on 2001 Hyundai Accent Tail light and dash issues

I have a 2001 Accent. And i beleive it is haunted. Atleast the wiring is for that matter. The dash lights have always blinked on and off until the car warmed up, then they would stay on. After replacing the stereo with an aftermarket deck, i lost all dash lights and control stick lights. Also my Left tail light will not turn off, and my right one seems to be blown. I checked the fuse, and the fuse was blown in the right hand light. When i replaced it and turned the lights on, it blew again. It keeps blowing fuses. Could the relay be the issue? I am dumbfounded, and the car isnt worth brining to a mechanics shop.

Note: my brake/emergency/turn signal lights work fine.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

Have you considered contacting a Priest? (Exorcism)
Wish I had some advise rather than a joke. It sounds like a poor connection and possibly a short. Nothing short of checking circuits is going to work. Sorry.

Dashboard lights and tail lights problem

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From hyundai05fel on Dashboard lights and tail lights problem

Dashboard lights and tail lights won't stay on, the car is running and the front lights work. So here is the thing I was messing around with the fuse box under the steering wheel and when I press or pull hard enough in a certain direction on the entire fuse box everything turns on and I hear a small click sound but as soon I press on the breaks or use the directional lights I hear the same click and everything turns off. Thank you in advance.
Car model Hyundai Tiburon 05.

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Loose connection or bad connection at the fuse block? You probably isolated the area where the problem is. You going to have to inspect connectors at or near the fuse block and fuse holders. Maybe you'll see the problem.

Tail-lights won't work right!

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From rhredemed on Tail-lights won't work right!

My daughter has a 2001 Hyundai Tiberon and the rear brake lights/running lights won't work right.
The right taillight will work when you apply the brake but won't work in the running light mode. The left taillight will work in the running light mode but doesn't work in the brake light mode. I have done a continuity test on the wires the best I can but haven't found anything. Also, what is the difference between the 1157 bulb and 2357 bulb. A book I have calls for the 2357 bulb but my daughter had the 1157 bulbs installed in her car. I not real good with electrical stuff, please help! Thanks, Rob.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Use the correct bulb designed for the vehicle and the 1157 or 2357 is just more wattage (lumens) on the higher #.

(57) suggests that the bulb has two filaments within the bulb. One brighter for brake lighting or hazard lights.

Sockets are suspect. Some bulbs you can force a bulb in improperly also,

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe

Showing 3 out of 3 Posts
Question From Msonyx on 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe

Hello,

I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe. It is a 2.7L V6 with 100k miles on it. Nothing really led up to the issue I am having it just started one day. What happens is, on occasion, when I turn my car off and attempt to lock it and arm the alarm it will not work. It thinks the keys are still in the ignition. I have to get in, and start my car, turn it off again and then it will let me lock it. I would say it happens maybe once every other week, but I don't want it to get worse. Also, the other day my tail lights stayed on when the headlights were actually turned off. The car was locked, and the lights were all in the off position. Any insight would be great. I already had the spark plugs and fuses replaced and this is still happening. The issue with the lights was a one time thing.


Thank you,

Onyx

Response From Discretesignals

When the problem is occurring is the chime going off with the key out of the ignition with the door open?

There is a controller called an EATCM (electronic alarm and timer control module) that controls the functions of the alarm system, lighting, and keyless entry. The module may need to be interfaced with a high end scan tool to see if there are any trouble codes stored and to look at data stream information such as inputs and outputs when the problem is occurring. Gathering that data would give direction in diagnosing the problem.

Response From Msonyx Top Rated Answer

Thank you for your response, and I am sorry I left that bit of information out. However, the alarm does not sound as if my keys are still in the ignition. I wish it did because it would save me a little bit of time and I would know that it wasn't going to lock. It just shuts off like normal, but won't lock or let the alarm set without me restarting the car and turning it off again.

Hyundai nightmare.......is the wreck worth it?

Question From lemorace on Hyundai nightmare.......is the wreck worth it?

hi, my name is lemorace, i live in so cal, i am a brand new car owner(21)
and had made a couple of regrettable decisions to lead my 2001 Hyundai GLS into a bad piece of auto aesthetics. i got into a car accident, completely smashing the front passenger, and rear driver side of my car, causing the frame to warp. the engine, and radiator was spared due to the design of the engine compartment. car can run, but I DO NOT drive it, it just isn't safe.

now my question to you, the great members of the CarJunky forums:
is resetting the frame's shape, plausible?
what would i need to do?
what would be some costs?
etc...

and as a little background, this car was actually given to me by my father, this car has done both of us, a load of good, iv'e had some great memories with the car, so it has some sentimental value. Plus i wouldn't mind sacrificing what little there is in my savings, to bring it back to the state it was before(saves a hell of a lot of gas).
and thank you once again. Lemorace

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Welcome to the site. I'm not an auto body tech but have a clue. This car can be straightened to exact specs such that parts will fit and so on. At now 11 +/- years old it's a total loss vs cost of repair most likely.

Is insurance from you or another going to help with this? Keep in mind that about all will not pay more to repair than the estimate of the fix and the remaining value together of good parts and sometimes can just pay the difference but be warned that fixed up there's a high chance of unseen problems down the road that may not show up right away.

Has it been estimated yet as to cost of the fix? Been a long time but from clear across country from So. Cal. do notice that cars last longer there and probably best to seek out another of the same if you really like that exact car that hasn't had the misfortune of major damage. My opinion and may stand alone,

T

Response From lemorace Top Rated Answer

thank you for the response Tom, as far as i know most of the claim money will be going to the other parties involved in the accident....
the overall cost of the car by KBB is about 1500.
the engine had been completely rebuilt after a gasket had been compromised.
About half of the parts needed to be replaced, can be found online, and are just a little bit more than 900 dollars, those being the:
Hood,
Fender(s),
Replacement head, and tail lights.
COMPLETE power steering replacement. 9 pieces all together.

this however does not include the:
trunk lid,
and other POSSIBLE parts that i probably won't see until i actually choose to do the repairs. getting close to the KBB MSRP, which would mean that im basically buying a rebuilt Elantra GLS.

i don't mind that, it would probably force me to take more care into the way i drive, and how much i drive.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

OK: I couldn't hope to guess the exact insurance rules or what if anything you get towards a repair or plain pay out and insurance then owns the car if like here at all. All that if you had coverage for your own car not required here but do have to cover damages to others.

Can only play the here-there rules. A 2001 wouldn't generally allow NEW parts but equivalent used parts - then comes the "frame straightening", labor plus the paint and finish work and what you have is a fixed up car which really can be just fine.

As said, expect some bull down the road that's not routine but a surprise odd something that may (maybe not?) crop up.

YOU have to decide if you want to overspend the value of the car and watch out for KBB, NADA and other valuations as in truth it's what willing buyer and sellers agree on every time. The fixed up value could be less or considered a "salvage" vehicle - can't say as an adjuster would determine that.

I gotta let you determine the real expense of fix or get another car if used may have other issues and repairs to do too. Accidents suk no matter how you slice it.

Side note: I drive and own (now) vehicles all exceeding 15 years old up to 64 years old! What are they really worth? Here, if not at fault with another vehicle you must have done an appraisal ahead that it's worth X not just some guessing book value. For myself if at fault the other is covered and I'm SOL for my own damages or total losses. Insurance roulette. Premiums saved over many decades would replace all of them so I'm ahead - knock on wood!

Should have said first and foremost hope nobody was hurt or worse! Do your homework as best you can about the $ impact vs a change. If you are at fault factor for your budget an insurance surcharge that most states do also.

Good luck,

Tom
