Just to let you know....the problem where I was unable to place car in park then later reverse escalated to where it was completely stuck. At first, I too turned the car on and off and things would free up but eventually all just siezed up. Car was towed to dealership and they stated it was the BRAKESWITCH. They replaced it and now that particular problem has resolved. Mention this to them...take your car in...you don't want this to get completely stuck in traffic. Good luck

My 2010 hyundai did this to me today for the first time. the lights not the racing. at one point when I went to put it in Park it got stuck in neutral then all of a sudden it worked.
Is the brake switch the problem? is there a recall on this issue?

I have been having a problem similar to yours on and off for the past year with my 2010 Tucson. At first, two sensors came on and then I couldn't get my gear shift to go past neutral when I pulled to a stop. The problem is getting worse. Have you called the company and received a response?

The problem is a 'BRAKESWITCH' problem.
I had a previous post on this. They replaced my brakeswitch and the sensor lights, gear getting stuck in netural, park etc. was resloved. Mention this to them. This is what their computer diagnostic showed. It was a simple fix and was not a transmission problem like I originally thought. However, I still have the racing sounds when the car shifts gears occasionally .... as if it is having a hard time shifting but it's just a sound and that does not seem to be causing a problem...yet.

It was the brake switch. They replaced it for free since it was under warranty. I looked at the price, and it would have been under $50 anyway. Good luck with your car.

Thank you. You are correct, they replaced it so it should be fine (hopefully).

Prior problem with transmission never fixed. After 2 wks service decided it needed a new wire harness on entire car. I had already mailed a certified letter to corp. because of lemon law. the dealership offer us to swap for another car but all they had was 2012's and they treated the defective
car like a trade in. They made it sound like the lemon law was tough to prove and I didn't want to get stuck with the vehicle. They took off a few thousand on the 2011 toward the 2012. We probably didn't loose too much but their attitude was horrible when we brought up the lemon law.
We still feel stuck with a car probably won't last more than a couple of years.

Hello All. My 2005 Tucson was my 2nd Hyundai, after a 2004 Elantra GT. I still have both cars.
At 17,000 miles, my Tucson shuddered while going up a hill, I took it into the dealership and they repaired it. At 60,000 miles, while on a trip in Mexico it started jumping from Overdrive into 3rd, or 2nd gear. If I turned the car off and on again, it would be okay until I put even the slightest load on it (hill). This was back in 2008 or 2009.
We called the dealership, they said no service in Mexico, so we just babied the car for the next 4,000 miles and completed our trip......... without turning back.
When we got back, Hyundai repaired it, and 5,000 miles later it happened again. Instead of turning it off, we went to the dealer, and they were able to download the black box information. I was sure that somehow the main shaft was out of round or something like that.
1st off, Hyundai said naw, 3 times must be the way I drive. I searched on the internet and found something similar in England for a Tucson transmission, so I printed the email and showed it to them. The gave the repair to some tech from Yugoslavia and he spent two weeks going through the entire computer program and found the glitch and sent in a Service Bulletin (it should have been sent to all Hyundai agencies).
Now we have 114,000 miles on it, not a single problem since. Besides this tranny problem we have not experienced any problems with the car, and the Elantra, still in the family, hasn't had any problems except the battery (at 80,000 miles) and somehow the carpet locking tab broke off and my daughter called stuck somewhere cause the carpet had gone under the gas pedal and she didn't realize it.
I think Hyundai's are wonderful, the Elantra kicks butt with the 16 valve and Rack and Pinion, and my Tucson will dust off most Honda's (I have the 2.7) ha ha.......... Both cars have leather, oooh so comfy......... sunroof on the Elantra.
I now drive a Mustang 2009, wife drive the Tucson, daughter drives the Elantra, and my son a 1967 Mustang.

The brake switch was the culprit. It was replaced and so far so good. The computer should store the codes for the dealership.
