#443 of 3416 Flashing Check Engine Light
Nov 27, 2002 (7:05 am)
I have a 1998 Hyundai Elantra. Yesterday morning and afternoon at lunch, the car was running fine. We had a dip in temp. where I live and when I got in my car to drive home, the check engine light started flashing. Not staying on, but flashing. Has anyone else had this problem? I am not driving it today, and will take it to the shop but wanted to know if anyone else has had their check engine light actually continually flash.

bartbikerw - regards to your defective elantra and not wanting to bother them with the shaking wheel/brakes and rotors; you should really bring that up too - it will certainly lend strength to your lemon claim, especially if it is a problem truly worth repair or correction.
I am glad to hear that you have not given up on the company (I may have if I were in a similar situation). My '02 GT has been really great - I am happy with its features, value and cost. We have had no problems whatsoever - so, stay determined and politely insist that they address and document every problem.

I was just wondering if anyone had a similar situation with a whisteling noise comming from the driver's side window when traveling above 80mph. I am going to take the car in, but would like to be more informed as to what the noise is exactly. I would appreciate any input. My car is a 2003 Elantra if that helps.

I need your help on the whisteling noise comming from the drivers side, do you know what it is

You can try to take your car in for a wind noise that happens above 80 mph, but it is likely the service manager will refuse to test-drive it at that speed. But it's worth a shot I suppose. A few things you could try are to treat the door gaskets with Armor-All (or similar), check them to make sure they are properly seated, and see if the driver's door is fitted properly.
#448 of 3416 wind noise

I found quite a bit of wind noise coming from the sunroof, when closed that is but with the sunshade open(the plastic cover that you pull closed inside the car). For about a month in the summer I was trying to figure out which side the wind noise was coming from, I couldn't figure out if it was the passenger side or drivers side?? then one day I closed the sunshade of the sunroof and noticed that the car was quiet! I had a good laugh about it...
Not to say that's what your wind noise is, just thought I'd share that little tid bit.
have a good one.

I bought a 2002 GT a couple of months ago and have noticed something really strange. Occasionally when I first start the car, the speedometer will jump up and down (like I'm going 0-10-0-10-0-10 etc.) It doesn't seem to be affecting anything mechanically, but it is a little disconcerting. Anyone else seen this and have a solution?
#450 of 3416 do i have an electrical problem?...buzzing noise
Nov 30, 2002 (6:00 am)
hi all. my 2002 elantra is making what i would call a buzzing noise. i hear it whenever the air conditioner kicks on and recently realized that i also hear it when i use the driver side door lock to lock all the doors. it's sort of a short "zzzzzzt," and sounds like it might be electrical. only happens when the mechanisms switch on......not continual. any ideas?

I just bought a 03 Elantra and other than a rattle above my head closer to the passenger side I think - I love it. I had a 00 Elantra and when my check engine light came on and stayed on flashing I knew something terrible was wrong (the coil went) but it was obvious to just not drive it - the dealer told me when the light actually stays flashing as opposed to steady DON'T DRIVE IT

You probably already checked this, but the first thing I do when I hear a rattle overhead is check the sunglasses holder, and sure enough it's always my wire-rimmed sunglasses rattling.
