Thank you for your reply. I actually do have a logon to www.hmaservice.com and have looked at the shop manuals, but they do not seem to be as detailed as I need. For example, I cannot find overview diagrams and the search feature seems to be lacking, in that, it cannot find matches to simple requests like "how to change oil filter". Perhaps the level of detail is there, but it seems very hard to find it. I need something that is user friendly and provides general overview as well as specific detailed technical information and is organized.

I have a 2006 Sonata. I still have the original battery, and it's probably time to replace the battery. What size of wrench fits the bolts on the battery? Standard-sized or metric? Thanks.

#3183 of 3236 urgent reply requested: check engine light
Dec 30, 2011 (5:12 pm)
My daughter has my 2007 Sonata GLS Standard Trans. The car has 45000 miles on it. She had it to dealer for an oild change about a week ago but hasn;'t driven it much and now the check engine light is on. she is about 100 miles from home. Can she drive it? Nothing else seems to be wrong with the car.

The general rule is that if the chek engine light is on and steady (not flashing) it is a minor problem and the car can be driven.
If the check engine light starts flashing, the problem is more serious and the car should be serviced immediately.

My electric door locks stopped working,fuse is good?

if the fuse is good, it could be the solenoid that actuates the locks. If it's all the locks, it might be the head unit/brain for the door locks.

So far this has been a fairly "glitchy" car. I've had an 2.4 SE since late June 2011, and the latest issue if the radio going dead. Hopped in the car yesterday afternoon to take my daughter to a friend's house, and the radio was powered up, but no sound.
When driving the car previous to that trip, I had been playing music from a flashdrive. When I went to select random play with the menu, the radio completely froze. You couldn't select any other modes such as radio, etc., but it was powered on.
So I shut the car off, restart it, and then the radio was off. And it won't power back on now.
This is just the latest in it's problems since new. The first monthly Blue Link monthly vehicle report notification showed a problem with the Electronic Stability Control, yet there were no indicators showing on the dash. Then, the tire pressure monitoring system DID show as having a problem on the dash, yet the tires were fine, and had the correct pressures all around. Yet Blue Link didn't show that.
Then, the tire pressure monitoring system cleared itself a week later. The funny thing is that the TPMS has been fine for the last two months, yet the latest Blue Link monthly vehicle report says that there is a TPMS problem now. LOL.
I'm just waiting for this car to strand me somewhere with some type of electronic gremlin.
#3188 of 3236 Orange Coolant and Sonata?
Jan 09, 2012 (11:43 am)
My 2006 Sonata v6 came with blue-green color coolant. Now the coolant level is low. I have some orange color Prestone Dex-Cool 50/50 coolant. Can I mix up this orange color coolant with the existing blue-green coolant? Thanks.
