>> drive the car for two weeks, your battery will be dead---no surprise.
I've had my battery go dead overnight twice on me for no apparent reason. Once recharged, it's fine. It's got to be a dome light or a trunk light. The trunk doesn't always latch unless it's shut with some force.
There's really no excuse for any of this. My bottom-of-the-line 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix had a control function that would turn off ANYTHING draining the battery after 15 minutes of inactivity. Can't tell you how many times that saved my battery from running down.
It also had a turn-signal warning bell when the turn signal was left on too long, and it had an oil remaining life monitor. In addition, I could program when and how I wanted the doors to lock and unlock (I selected shifting in and out of park as my option). Every Hyundai car made over the last 10 years should have had these features as a minimum.

#419 of 465 Problem with radio, aka CD Player
Dec 19, 2010 (5:32 pm)
I usually do not play CD's as I have the XM radio. Tired of all the Christmas Music, I tried to play a CD and saw this message"Checking CD". Nothing works as far as playing CD's. any ideas? Do you think when I changed the battery last month it might have screwed up the CD player? Car has 46,000 miles so I would assume no warranty on the radio anymore, right?

Huh? My '99 Mustang still has the original battery in it. Do you live in a hot clime? I have heard that heat is rough on batteries.

Whereas the manual doesn't tell you how to change a fog light, can you advise how to do it? Thanks.

it actually takes some patience, but...the easiest way I found to do it was this...
To start with the driver's side bulb, turn the steering wheel hard right to expose the wheel well shield towards the front. You will have to remove the fasteners that hold the shield in place towards the bottom of the wheel well...enough that you can pull it apart and slide your arm in. Once you've accomplished this...reach towards the front and you should be able to reach the back of the fog light. Pull the harness off of the back of the bulb, twist the bulb out of the housing, replace with new bulb and plug the harness back in.
Sorry I don't have pics to post of this procedure. I think it'll make sense once you actually start doing it. Once you get the hang of it, it goes really quickly. If you ever have to change out the fog light housing...that requires a whole lot more more work. Let me know how it goes for you.

Thanks so much! As soon as the snow melts enough I'll give it a try. Happy Holidays to you, too.
#424 of 465 2007 Azera Engine Seal Leak
Jan 19, 2011 (2:13 pm)
I took my 2007 Azerea with 98,000 miles on it to the Hyundai dealership today for service. The dealership called and said I had an engine seal oil leak, and that Hyundai was not going to fix it under the 100,000 mile warranty because it was not a gasket, Hyundai used some other method in the engine seals. They said it was going to be $1,600 to fix it! Has anyone else heard of this? And what difference would it be that it wasn't a gasket?

My 2006 has just over 10100 miles on it and i too have a bit of a leak from the top of the engine. I figured that Hyundai would weasel their way out of replacing it under warranty (leak started around the 80k mark). So...instead, I'll just have it replaced when I get the spark plugs done since the have to take apart the top part of the engine while doing so.
Seals and gaskets sort of do the same thing, but the seal is used to "seal" fluids in or out. Gaskets are more for keeping metal from rubbing by allowing for expansion and contraction as it's porous. Funny how both are wear and tear items, but one they'll replace while the other the won't.
