Had the same problem with my '05 last year. It was a burned out relay and replaced by the dealer under warranty. Try the dealer if your warranty is still in force. If not, the part number from my repair order is 95250-2D000.
#49 of 87 check engine--ait conditioner
Jul 18, 2009 (10:05 am)
my 2001 elantra gt generally runs smooth. When turning on the air conditioning, the engine seems to run rough--from the extra pull from the air conditioning. Recently the check engine light came on during this period. Upon turning off the air and engine, restarting the check engine light was clear. Is there a sensor or particular item I need to look at to eliminate this from happening again ?
#50 of 87 Front end shake
Jul 21, 2009 (5:39 am)
I have a 2003 Elantra. Between 60-65 MPH I get a bad front end shake. If I ease off the gas and maintain that speed, the shake goes away. If I give it gas, the shake comes back and stays through 65 or so and then goes away. I do not have any shaking at similar RPM at reduced speeds. I have new tires, balanced three times, rotated every which way still shakes. I have new brakes all around, still shakes. I replace the front and rear motor mounts, still shakes. The mechanics, several of them are perplexed. The car runs great, shifts great, the front end is very tight. I have 122,000 miles and am the original owner

My car shook too and I got the new tires, rotated and balanced at required times, however, nobody told me to get an alignment and I just had that done and the car has never driven so good...NO MORE SHAKING (my GPS is relieved cause it was always bouncin around in its holder!!)
#52 of 87 2004 Hyundai Elantra Shift Solenoid Problem
Jul 21, 2009 (8:54 am)
I need help. My 2004 Hyundai Elantra got stuck in 3rd gear. We had it put on the computer for analysis and it says that three parts were bad: the idle speed control, the oxygen sensor, and the shift solenoid A. The mechanic said that the shift solenoid is probably the real problem so we have ordered the part and must change it ourselves since the warranty is out and we can't afford $85/hr. We have researched online and found a lot of information on the Hyundai Service Website at hmaservice.com but we are having a little difficulty with finding the exact diagrams and instructions on changing the shift solenoid A. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try another balance, this time be sure they are using a Hunter 9000 or equivalent. Elantras of this generation are very sensitive to out-of-balance wheels. I just had the wheels on my 2004 GT rotated and balanced (free from the tire dealer every 6k miles). I now notice a slight shake at 60-70 mph that wasn't there before. So when I have time I'll take it back for rebalancing. This has happened before on my 2001 and 2004 Elantra. Sometimes the first balance didn't do the trick. The 2nd time was the charm in each case.

It's the tires. It's always the tires. I am the original owner of a 2001 with 150,000 miles. Just replaced the tires again at 146,000 and it is completely vibration free again. You can't use cheap tires (I'm using BF Goodrich from Costco). You must have a good alignment and balance. You must make sure the steering components are all tight (I just replaced the inner tie rod ends). But good tires are the most important thing.

Just another comment regarding clutch replacements - mine just set me back over $1,400 on a 2006 Elantra Hatchback. I took it to an independant garage where I was given a two year warranty. The dealership offered a one-year warranty for the replacement Hyundai clutch - good to find out how long they figured the second one would last.

Yes, I agree. Although the OEM tires on the 2001-6 Elantra were rather pricey Michelins, and many folks had shimmy problems with those. I never did. But it's popped up a couple of times on my 2004 probably because I went the cheap route when I had to replace the tires at 18k due to my DW's run-in with a curb in a blizzard (curb won). The tires work and wear fine, but one seems to be badly out of balance so the tire shop has to balance them carefully or I get the shimmy.
