^^^ it's the brake switch. I had it replaced and it worked fine for less than a month! Then the transmission started surging. Took it back and they said it was the temperature control in the transmission. I traded it that day! I don't have time to be at the repair shop every few months for a transmission that only had 10k miles on it! Remember this is my second transmission in a 2 yr old car. I will never own a Hyundai again! Best of luck to you!

Mine is a 2011 Tucson. There is no racing engine, but 2 sensor lights- the uphill grade goes on in red and the traction goes on in yellow, when I stop the car and try to go from neutral to park it will not go past neutral.
Dealership has car and will run a diagonostic, should I tell them about the "brakeswitch" problem or let them figure it out in case that is not my issue?
How is your car running now?

Sounds like time to find out how strong that Warranty is. Difficult enough to get satisfaction on a new vehicle let alone a used one.

I have two Hyundai vehicles with the 100,000 mile warranty. ...
I have only had one problem, the transmission went out on my Tucson at 17,000 miles and again at 70,000.
The first time they went out of their way to replace it, but the second time I was stonewalled. .. ..
They told me various things, like I drove it hard, and also they looked at the tow hitch and claimed I was towing something heavy (actually the small hitch came with the Tucson for the bike rack option, so there) .. ..
The failure was peculiar, so I did an intense internet search of a similary problem, printed it out and took it to the dealer, where I found someone in England who experienced the same problem.. ..
So I went back to the dealer, and he had his best specialist ride along with me and when the failure occurred, he had me leave the car running and attached some kind of black box reader.... ..
Two weeks later (they gave me a loaner) they figured it out, the software that recognizes up to 4 different drivers got confused and it was making it jump from driver to driver, that caused the erratic shifting. A few lines of code were added, and a Service Bulletin sent to all Hyundai dealers worldwide.. ..
The point is, you might need to find some similar problem that is occurring in your vehicle and use that as leverage, include the words 'class action', 'lemon law', but in a casual friendly way. They will respond.. .. good luck.

I am having the same issue with a 2010 Tucson. I can't seem to find a way to read the responses to your post, so I would like to know if you ever found the solution to the sensor and transmission issue.

After all the transmission problems on my 2010 Tucson, i sold it. I was sick of breaking down and paying for a rental car each time it was in the shop. So not worth the trouble. I bought a Ford and will probably never go back to Hyundai. Defiantly never buy the first year of any car again!

Yes my transmission problem was fixed by the dealer.
After a thorough investigation, the technician (who was of European descent and brilliant) figured out that the software that recognizes the habits of up to 4 drivers had become confused.
One of the causes was that I received that bike rack option along with the small trailer hitch, and my bike weighed a lot.
There was a service bulletin issued, your shop must not have done a good enough job to find it.
My Tucson now has nearly 138,000 miles on it, just passed the smog check two days ago.
There was another problem I had not too long ago, when I gassed up, the car was hard to start, and the engine check light was on. Well, needing to fix that, and being out of warranty, I went to my local mechanic friend who investigated that and found that the valve that allows vapor into the charcoal canister was sticking. A few suck and blows later, it unstuck.
I urge all who own Hyundai's to use the search engine wisely and find your same problem and print it out and take it to the dealer.
My other Hyundai is a 2004 Elantra GT, 110,000 miles, never a single problem, ever. Then again, I take good care of my cars.
For that nagging tranny problem I suggest you contact svelasco.frankhyundaigs.reyrey.com

Rather difficult to solicit help from fellow owner's problems when some posting lag times are 3 to 6 months apart. With the number of Hyundai's you see on the road and all the problems you read and hear about, you would expect replies and responses within an hour.
I once belonged to an Acura Forum and a question or comment posting would generate 2 to 4 replies the same day. I guess them Rich Guys had nothing better to do but spend time in front of that screen.
Good luck with the Ford.
#79 of 80 2005 Tucson transmission/clutch problems
Oct 04, 2013 (11:28 am)
Bought my 2005 Hyundai Tucson new. Had to replace manual 5-speed transmission at about 2,000 mi. About 2 years ago, had to replace transmission again (125K miles). Didn't mind too much, it was the only major repair that had been needed. About a year ago, had total clutch failure. At first, the AAMCO guys said nothing was wrong with car. I had to take it in a second time with clutch smoking before they believed me and replaced master and slave cylinders (plus clutch plate, etc.) Yesterday, (now at 152K miles) I started having problems shifting, same as last year. After about 20 miles, was in heavy traffic on the beltway, couldn't shift at all, luckily was able to coast into a parking lot in 3rd gear. After putting it in neutral, I couldn't put it into any gear, including reverse. Got a ride to work, let it sit 9 hours, still couldn't get it into any gear (also had a friend try to get it in gear without success). I had it towed to AAMCO. They let it sit overnight, just called me and said nothing is wrong with car. I said "NUTS!!" I am not driving it again until it's fixed. Any ideas out there?
