Of course..... Since the Air Quality button light doesn't light, it doesn't light the recirculate button either. If I manually push the recirculate button, then it switches.

Figured out the button. I had taken out the cabin filter, just in case it was clogged and the air quality button light still would not stay lit.
Got a filter, installed it, now the button works as advertised. Guess there must be some sort of sensor to tell if the filter is installed and flowing.

Check your "cabin filter". It's pretty easy to replace and you can get them on EBay for $11. They get rather filthy fast. Just like a "replace bag" in your vacuum, there is a sensor.

I just changed the cabin filter in my 07 santa fe. I got one locally for $19.00. You are correct, it is easy th change. I park mine by a tree most of the time,so will need to change it more often. Mine was so nasty, im suprised it even worked.

it's easy to do - i paid to have it done - then i realized how easy it was i told the people at the dealer i'd do it myself. to my surprise - one of the clips was broken when I went to do it - i wonder if it was done intentionally to make it hard for me or they just broke it last time they did it and didn't say anything. I now use a custom made filter that is washable so it will pay for itself over time and i won't be buying anymore filters...

Somedai - please explain how you managed to get a custom made cabin filter - did you make it yourself, or is it off the shelf ?If so, where from?

#10 of 12 Air cabin filter

These are available on-line. Ebay or any auto on-line store and maybe some local stores. They are $12+. Not that hard to replace if you read the instructions. They are behind the glove box. Getting to it and understanding the instructions is the only problem. The dealer may charge your $30 just for the filter.
They are just like the filter on vacuums. They cost $2 to make and stores sell them for $22+ I can buy a jacuzzi water filter for $48 at the pool store or on-line for $8. They are from the same companies. Just going through fewer hands and less mark up.

Just getting around to replace my cabin air filter for my 2004 Santa Fe.
You mentioned "Read the Instructions". Where do I get the instructions?
