Thank you, At first it was the gas gauge going to empty. Then the radio started going on by itself. Then the fan, had to play with it a little before it would turn on. Now the speedometor goes to zero at times.
I guess I have to bring it to hyundai for a test. Hate doing that.

Do you happen to know what might be the cause for several things happening all of a sudden. Gas gauge going to empty, radio coming on by it self, speedometor going to zero at times and fan acting up?
I thought it might be the vss sensor but that controls the speedometor right? I may just have to bring it to hyundai for a diagnostic test.
Sorry if this is a duplicate post not sure about this site.

to Topcat or any else that might know.
My issue is with the speedometor, radio,fan and gas gauge. All are acting up. Is there a sensor for all of them? Thanks

Where exactly is it located. Do you access from top or bottom. The pictures in the other post is showing what I believe to be the output sensor(has a 10mm bolt for removing) not the speedometer gear unit. Is it the unit under the air intake kind of below the battery(left end of battery) that has a "C" clip holding it? If it is and 4 pins connector(not 3 pins as shown in pictures), then after you remove the "C" clip do you pull straight out or wiggle it out?

It is great to hear you got your problems fixed but could really help others if you give a little more detail information. Like where exactly it is and how to access.it. Others have posted they found sites with pictures and it will help if you could include the links or the pictures.

The one a little left of M/C and down has a 10mm bolt holding it. I took it out and it does not have gears on it. It is just a sensor module. Do I have to remove the engine cover to see it? I have hooked up a computer analyzer to the OBD and test driven the car and all speed sensors are working. ie. every speed parameter; trans, wheels, engine are feeding back to the OBD readout so I am almost positive the problem is like most have described as stripped/broken speedometer gear........But where do I find it, how do I access it and how many pins on the connector? I see another connector a little forward of the one described above with a 4 pin connector and a "C" clip holding it. I tried taking the unit out but it was tight and did not want to break anything unnecessarily. Is this the correct unit and what's the trick in removing it?

I had the same problem and changed the VSS, bought it from FourGreen but it didnt come with a gear so i replaced the sensor by itself. Before the speedo or the odometer didnt work and now they work but the speedo bounces alot and the crusie control surges when i use it. I think it may either need another gear which i dont know where to get one or it may have a bad connection. It has a short pig tale from the sensor to anotner plug connection and i am thinking this may be bad but i dont know where to buy on. If anyone can help me find the pig tale connector or the plastic gear that would be a huge help.

When you pulled the sensor out did it have a gear on it? If not the gear was hung up in the hole. You can get a new gear from Hyundai. I would pull the sensor again and get the gear and replace it. You are sure you bought the right sensor aren't you.

There was a gear but it looked ok, but I didn't have one to compare it to. So I can get a gear from Hyundai, but where can I get the pig tale, hyundai? It's acting like a loose connection, could that be the worn gear as well?

got a check engine light and codes read p0500 & p0501. One is for the speed sensor (p0500) and the other is for speed sensor circuit performance(p0501). looked to see on Hyundai service site and says to check the wheel senor on passenger side but looking at parts their are sensors on all wheels w/abs. any ideas how i can boil this down to the right sensor and not waste a lot of money changing parts?
