#92 of 125 Electrical Issues PLEASE HELP!!!
Jan 12, 2012 (2:17 pm)
I just bought a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe and it is being so weird. When I turn on the car the radio turns on and it goes back and forth between radio and cd player so I turned it off. I turned the corner and went over a speed bump and the radio came on out of no where. Also when you roll down the passenger window and roll it back up the the driver side window will roll down by itself. I want to know if anyone has had this problem, what it was and how much it cost to get fixed?
#93 of 125 Climate Control Knobs
Jan 17, 2012 (11:52 am)
I have a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. The illuminators on the climate control knobs are not working, so I can't see the knobs when driving at night. If I want to adjust the heat or air, I have to turn my overhead light on in order to see the knobs.
Has anyone else heard of this problem or know how I can fix it?
#94 of 125 Sante Fe randomly shutting down while driving
Jan 31, 2012 (6:02 pm)
I have a 2004 Sante Fe that I've only had for about 3 months now. I was driving and it out of no where shut down on me. After pulling over, I tried restarting it and it is turning over but not firing. I was told it was most likely the fuel pump so that was just replaced and it is still doing the same thing. Now I'm being told possibly the ECU? Anyone have similar issues or know what it could possibly be? Thanks for any replies
#95 of 125 2011 Santa Fe acting strange(elecrical issues ?)
Mar 02, 2012 (12:54 pm)
Think we got a lemon!
We bought our 2011 V6 AWD Sport in March 2011 and I have 12,000 km on it March 2 2012.
4 times the battery has been dead when we go to start it.No reason we can find/light left on/door ajar.Anyway.It happened again on Wed. I put the charger on it and finally got it to start.
I had lights flashing on the dash/chimes & bells going off.I shut it off and restarted.Each time I did this, less lights would come on or different lights would come on.By lights I mean the idiot lights on the dash. My check engine light was flashing but after another restart it went solid.
I needed to go to town a 64 km round trip but my gas gauge was showing empty and range was blank.I had just filled up on Monday and had only driven maybe 150 km.There was a strong smell of gas. As I was driving, the engine light would flash intermittently.The gas gauge started to move up* but my range remained blank.I called my dealership and they towed it in.I am still waiting to hear what codes if any it gave them.All they have said is that I have several issues. This was said before they had it in the shop
#96 of 125 Brake Light Problem w/2005 Hyundai Santa Fe
Mar 15, 2012 (4:45 pm)
I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe (which I really like). When I have my headlights on, all my brake lights come on, too (I have been pulled over by state patrol with a warning). When my headlights are off, everything is normal. Can I fix this myself? Thank you for the responses.
#97 of 125 2003 SANTA FE CIG. FUSE
Jun 18, 2012 (9:33 am)
About 1 month ago my fuse for the Cig lighter and charge blew. Figured it's 9 years old and it's the first fuse to blow, so wasn't a big deal. Now it's blown again, should I be concerned it's something more serious? I use a TomTom GPS, but haven't noticed any problems until recently.

#99 of 125 Air conditioning problem
Jul 06, 2012 (3:25 pm)
I have a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. The air conditioning works only intermittently. My regular mechanic replaced a faulty pressure relay switch but warned me that he didn't believe that would resolve the issue as during the diagnostic phase he noticed a current break somewhere near the control panel. I took the car to my local Hyundai dealer where they performed their own diagnostic test on the a/c and corresponding electric system, yet found found no problem. The dealer said they added a 1/4lb of freon and told me they were "confident they fixed the problem". Drove the car home with the a/c working, parked it for a couple of hours, got back in the car to go to the store and again the a/c stops working. The air blows cold for a bit then warm then back to cold. Any ideas? Anyone else having an issue with a/c?

I have the same problem with my radio. It happens the most when the day is hot. The display may not work and station won't change but often when I'm listening to the radio, it switches to the CD player. I also get spurious characters on the display. The problem is getting worse. Now my gas gauge will suddenly go dead and drop to E and the fuel light comes on. Then it will go back to where it should be.
It sounds like similar problem with slightly different symptoms. It doesn't show up in their diagnostics which makes no sense. It's probably just a bad board.

Probably a bad serpentine belt, one that has hardened over time. Not just a bad belt though, replace the belt tensioner too or the problem will come back in a short while.
