On the earlier 2006/2007 models, there was a common problem with the map lights not coming on when the door was opened. There is a TSB for this, so the dealer should be aware of it and be able to fix it.
Likewise, if it hasn't been done yet,there is also a way to program the door locks to close automatically when the vehicle reaches 15 mph. They do not, however, open automatically when you remove the key for safety reasons, only when you manually open the door from the inside.
if you have the 18" tires then keep them at 30 psi (cold).
The little prongs on the inside of the circular gas filler door are for putting the gas cap in to hold it up when filling with gasoline.
The front headrests are adjustable; hold the button in and lift to raise or lower them, then push them all the way backward to release them to the most forward postion, then push them back click by click (4 positions)
Hope you have fun with your S. Fe., Ciao.
#13 of 20 2004 Santa fe Cruise Control Problem
Apr 12, 2010 (11:03 am)
I have 2004 3.5 DOHC Santa Fe. Cruise Control was working until 3 days back alright. All of sudden now, it stopped. Cruise control light comes up if I press the on/off button. I tried to set the cruise after cruising at around 70 miles/hr but it won't engage and as soon as relieve the SET button the vehicle cruises down. I want to know what could be the problem and how much it could cost me to fix it? Rest everything is working alright.
Thanks in advance,

I have the 2004 3.5L Santa Fe and had exactly the same problem. What I find that both the stop lights bulbs were blown. After checking the circuit diagram, I found out that these bulbs were providing ground path to the cruise control module through the bulb filament resistance.
After I replaced both the bulbs, cruise control works fine.

I have a 2003 Santa Fe which had exactly the same problem with the cruise control that you had. The reply by Kenr11 and others, helped me to fix the problem for less than $3.00 (two double filament brake bulbs).
I'm wondering what caused both brake lamps to blow.
AND I wondering why there was NO indication on the dash that two of the three brake lamps were out??? I went for 3 weeks before discovering the brake light problem. (The brake lamp in the middle top of tail gate was still working). This is a Definite safety issue that Hyundai should fix!

Did you ever figure out why both bulbs were blown?
Thanks to your reply/note I was able to get the cruise & the brake lights going again with very little fuss & cost..., Once I became aware that the brake lights were out. Thanks!

2005 santafe: after searching internet besides the tail lite filaments as cause for malfunction of cruise control (cruise lite on but cannot set/or accelerate. I read a post by a Hyundai service tec that said every third santafe with that prob the switch on steering was faulty.
Two phillips screws removes the switch unit and unplug is easy from harness. There are two printed circuit boards that are perpendicular to each other and are electrically joined by four (4) soldered pins from one board to the other....a gentile wiggle of that joint revealed that the solder joints were broken on one or two of the four...... with a FINE solder tip you can re-solder those loose joints being very careful NOT to bridge one pin to another......repair 100%
