You are in the Hyundai Azera
What is this discussion about?
Hyundai Azera, Sedan
#681 of 720 Here is the correct Hyundai TSB
Dec 15, 2008 (9:43 pm)
"TSB 08-BE-004, 6/17/2008 all Body Electrical System 08-BE-004 DIAGNOSIS
VOLTAGE DROP "
Inform your service writer that you want TSB 08-BE-004 performed on your
Azera and demand that all procedures therein be done, bar none.
When and if the service department properly follows these Hyundai TSB
instructions to the letter, your problems will then be a thing of the past.
I know that a bad battery cannot be the cause of any of your problems.
Either the battery is good or it is not!
If the battery were not good to begin with, it would not start your vehicle now would it?
Do a Google. Type in TSB 08-BE-004 and read all the posts under the second find.
Try this:http://www.hyundai-forums.com/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=8472 ,
and if it comes through, you've got the TSB to read for yourself!
Print it out and hand it to your service writer.
He has probably never seen it before don't you know?
#682 of 720 At the Dealer now!
Dec 18, 2008 (5:35 pm)
Ok it was an interesting experience getting the dealer to take a closer look at my car. First they required me to take a tech with me for a ride so he could witness the headlights dim. Thankfully they dimmed twice within about a quarter mile of the dealer. I told the dealer about this site and how some of you had told me about a TSB. They said there isn't a TSB about my problem but they would find out what was going on with my car. Today they called me back and said "We think we found the problem." They said there is in fact a TSB but it only came out about two weeks ago (a lie for sure) but they don't have the wiring harness needed to make the repair (I am sure that is true). So needless to say they ordered it and I am unsure when I will get my car back. On the up side they gave me a complete piece of junk Chevy Cobalt to drive in the mean time. I guess I shouldn't complain at least its headlights don't flicker.
I am not happy but at least something is getting done and I am especially appreciative of your help donna388 and almett33. Thanks again.

You may recall . .
Go on this URL and read what they are doing. That TSB tells the tech exactly what to do.
Shouldn't take too long to get the replacement cable to the dealership unless
you are located really far from the part warehouse distribution point?
Always be sure to print out any TSB available that you know about.
The clowns cannot argue with you, can they?
I said that the service writer would not have seen it let alone be familiar with it.
The date on that TSB is indeed June 2008, and if memory serves, there is an earlier TSB
also as this problem as it has been known by Corp since the earliest 2006 models.
I'm glad you're getting results and as I said, your problems will be a thing of the past!

Gives one a warm and fuzzy feeling about not only the car, but especially the dealer, who by now must be looking forward to you purchasing your $40k Genesis in the not too distant future.
#685 of 720 Got my car back but I am not happy.

They did the proper TSB work and on the way home the lights didn't flicker. Then the next time I drove it at night they started flickering again. I am going to call the dealer on Monday and make an appointment to take it back in again. Gotta love it.
I drove the car over a 1000 miles during Christmas week. Gratefully it was almost exculsively daytime driving. I really enjoyed it. Now if I can just get the headlights to work I might enjoy driving it at night too.

Hey Jeff072...have you replaced the battery??? Please don't say yes, with another Hyundai battery. That could also be another problem. I went to Walmart and bought a new battery for my Azera when I was experiencing the lights dimming when coming to a stop (not while driving) and ever since having the new battery in...the lights only dim when I play my music really loud (after market sound system). I think I paid about $75 for the new battery.
Happy Holidays to you and yours.

I too bought a 2007 Azera Limited in Nov 2007 and just discovered a crack on the passenger side dashboard. The crack is about 4 to 5 inches long and deep. Looks like it was cut with something very sharp. I just called my dealer to have it looked at so will keep you posted.

Pretty common problem. Most dealers have replaced a lot of the pads. They say the company that made them stamped the air bag part too deep. Just had mine replaced, hope they corrected the problem.

My 2006 Azera also had cracking starting to appear on passenger side dash. The dealer replaced it, and mentioned they had seen a couple of other ones.
