I'm having the exact same problem. Does anyone have any idea, please? I have a Santa Fe 2003, Manual, 2.4 - V4
The low oil pressure light means exactly that, your engine's oil pressure is low. First off stop the engine and check the oil level after about 5 mins to let the oil drain back into the oil pan and get an accurate reading. See if you are low on oil. If you are top it off to the full mark. If your oil level is fine, and the oil pressure light is coming on, your… Read More
Please Read at bottom... It seems kind confusing your answer. Why remove the AC pump if it is on the front area of the engine and the alternator is on the back? The problem on removing the alternator on this vehicle is on the bracket that seems to lock the CV Axle in place. This bracket is behind the alternator and seems like it has to be removed so the lower bolt holding the alternator… Read More
Researched it, and found what DTC P1155 means - P1155 Electronic Traction System Limp Home Valve. Sometimes the symptom can be cured by checking loose connectors, wiring, rematching tires, properly inflating tires, etc. You may want to stop by your local AutoZone, Checkers, CKS, etc. and ask them if they have the valve and how hard it is to fix. CODE P1155 IS ELECTRONIC THROTTLE SYSTEM LIMP HOME MALFUNCTION NOT ELEC TRACTION SYSTEM. 3.5L SANTA… Read More

it is behand the plate on the bottom pulley The crank sensor is located behind the timing and balance shaft belts. depending on condition/age of belts, you may want to consider replacing them both. Note: if you plan on doing this repair yourself you'll need to research how to properly align the oil pump pulley.
firs look for all screws of the door if they are show it, them some times there's more screws hid inside of the plastics so check for edges on the door panel after that take a screw driver and push in to the edge of the door panel and the metal of the door.

Hi I recently had the exact same problem on my 2003 santa fe Took it to the dealer 3 times and finally they contacted a field engineer and the problem was a bad transmission temperature sensor.(It makes sense)they found a bulletin 0440016 for trans temp sensor replacement. I just gave you the number code that is on my repair statement. Hope that helps!!! I definitely feel your pain!!!

I have a 2001 Hyundai Santa fe, they way I changed the tail lights was to open the hatch door, thus exposing the screws that hold the light lens assembly. these screws are two(2) hex type screws. Next with the screws off then you need to pull gently the lens assembly off. I had to use a flat needle nose plier to place it under the assembly to pry it off the car. Careful not… Read More
I just did this. It was easy as pie. Remove the three screws that hold the entire headlight unit in. Two screws are on the top and one is on the side. Then, detach the entire unit from the car via two cords (one rectangular and one triangular) that send power to the headlight. Then, unscrew the plastic circular thing in the back. Remove the power cord to the light itself. Then pop off the… Read More

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE 02 SENSOR , BUT THE OIL FILTER IS LOCATED SLIGHTLY TO THE DRIVER'S SIDE UNDER THE PLASTIC SHROUD SURROUNDING THE BOTTOM OF THE RADIATOR. YOU WILL SEE A ROUND PLASTIC ACCESS OPENING. I THINK IT ACTUALLY SAYS OIL FILTER ON IT. SIMPLY TURN IT TO REMOVE IT. WHEN TAKING THE OIL FILTER OFF, USE A PIECE OF CARDBOARD FOR THE OIL TO RUN ONTO. IF YOU DON'T PUT SOMETHING UNDER… Read More
Depends on lots of things. The miles on the car, usually higher miles you want to use a thicker oil than say what you would put in when the car was new, most dealerships i think put 5-20 in new cars, but once valves and such inside the engine start to wear down, youll probably want a thicker oil say, 10-30 or 10-40, the thicker oil just gives it a little extra cushioning i guess… Read More
Could be an A/C coolant leak.
4 1/2 quarts to 5 quarts. usually 5 w 30 weight oil. check after 4 quarts and engine has been started. this allows the oil to get into the oil filter and then recheck the dip stick so that you can refill if needed.
Ddefective or mis- adjusted brake light switch - located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area
It means "take me to the dealer". You can take it to Auto Zone instead and they may be able to reset the code and tell you what it means for a lot less.
if you have more than 60K miles start by replacing the Oxygen sensor(s) that is(are) installed after the catalytic converter(s).
As far as I know, there are 4 oxygen sensors on a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe. 1 upstream sensor and 1 downstream sensor located in the front manifold/exhaust and 1 upstream and 1 downstream sensor located in the rear manifold/exhaust.
Remove wheels Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor (using a c-clamp to keep them open) unscrew the holding screw(s) off center of the hub Rotor should slide off center hub (you may have to tap it gently around the edges with a hammer)
Problem with one or more of the components in the emission system Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
Remove the cowling from the top of the engine. They are under there.
Condensor is the coil in front of the radiator or it may be located somewhere else. It serves as a heat exchanger and dissipates the heat collected by thefreon after it was vaporized in the evaporator and compressed in the compressor. It accomplishhes this by utilizing air flow across a series of tubes
All OBDII connectors are within a foot or so of the steering column under the dash.
The first things to check on any car or light truck with this problem is corrosion or surface irregularity of brake discs and/or rotors and bent or out-of-place brake backing plates and rattle clips. Next, check for loose or crooked wheels, then u-joints and CV joints.
it's barely visible-on the end corners of either side-i was close to buying this vehicle until I read an article about it and then now have major concerns
My Hyundai Santa Fe (2001) runs out of gas so quickly because two of my Oxygen sensors are bad and need to be replaced. They are causing my engine to run rich at this point and therefore reducing my gas mileage. I also have a broken fuel gauge that makes it appear that I have gotten only 200 miles to a tank. When really this isn't so. The cause of my fuel gauge being broken… Read More
1. The plenum need to be removed as a recomendation detach the wiring connectors, the PVC hose and the fuel regulator hose, but leave the coolant hoses installed to the throatle body this prevent a fluid mess and having to bleed the cooling system. 2.

the belt is supposed to be tight but, if you need to loosen for some reason , and it is staying tight, i would suggest it is the wrong belt and probably jamming in the pulley wheels

You'll need a 17mm socket wrench, a pan to catch the old oil in, a new filter (like a Fram PH 9688), and 5 quarts of new oil. You don't need a jack. You may want to have an oil filter wrench since it can be tough to remove it by hand. The Santa Fe manual also recommends idling the car until the temperature gauge moves beyond the lowest mark before changing the oil. Behind… Read More
Start by pulling the cover on the bottom of vehicle. remove cover on starter and if you look at an angle towards the driver side up and in you will see the crank sensor. 10mm open end wrench will remove the bolt. trace plug to top driver side.
Push and hold the Ambient (outside) Temperature button down while pressing the Temperature Down button. After several seconds the display will toggle. Tried it on my 2006 Sonata after finding this URL: http://en.allexperts.com/q/Hyundai-Repair-815/2001-XG300-Heater-Control.htm and it worked (after driving around for a month before I got weary of doing temp conversions in my head).

I've got a 2004 and my mechanic is telling me just over $800. About $350 for the parts and the rest is labor. $500 in labor? Seems a little high. Found a rack and pinion rebuilt on the internet for $250. Not sure how much I trust my mechanic anymore...
It's located underneath the front passenger seat.

it is located in a canister on the top right side of the engine. remove the plastic engine cover on the top of the engine and you will see it. The cover is held on by two screws and four acorn nuts.
The oil capacity for the 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe with the 2.7 liter engine is approximately 5 quarts. This oil can be purchased at any auto parts store.
The best advice is to visit Santa Fe forums asking for a write up (if one exist). Write up in car forums are you best choice if you are an amateur to auto maintenance as the pictures are in color and with the best and most detailed instructions in most cases. 2nd choice is to buy a maintenance manual from a local auto store. Cost is around $40-$60 by car but will save you HOURS… Read More
brake light switch at the top off your brake pedal the little rubber bumber is worn out or the switch is out.... very easy fix
The 2004 Santa Fe transmission doesn't have a serviceable filter. There's one deep inside the transmission, but the transmission needs to be removed and disassembled to get to it. The only time that filter would be replaced is if the transmission were overhauled. This is the answer I found online, and after trying to change the filter on a 2002 Santa Fe, I believe it completely.
Hi You either have an electrical fault in the sensor that tells the fan to turn on and off, or you do not have enough coolant in your radiator for the fan to be able to bring down the engine to a normal temperature. If your temperature gauge is registering normal, and is not in or even close to the red zone, then it is probably the electrical fault, but it won't really harm anything… Read More
I just did my first oil change on my 2007 Santa Fe with the 3.3 engine. It took me a while to find the filter, but after I did I found it to be very easy to change.

The antenna is in the driver's side rear window. Look close and you can see the wires inside the glass, pretty much like the rear defroster.
From an auto zone I was told 4.75 quarts for a 2005 santa fe 2.7liter engine. That's how much to add during an oil change.
If it has dip switches inside you just need to set them the same as your receiver on the opener, otherwise you can use the learn option on the opener to make it learn the new remote.
Here is the procedure for a 2002 2.4 engine. Tools needed: ratchet, at least a 6" extension, 10mm socket, 13/16" spark plug socket.

You can't. You have to have an OBD2 tester/code analyzer.
Its hidden by the air dam under the radiator. You can remove air dam, only 5 bolts or just bend it down and remove plug.

my check engine light comes on if the gas cap isn't on properly. next time you fill the tank make sure the gas cap clicks at least 3 times and that its on tight. after driving for a while the light should go off.
A problem with emissions can be correctly cured if the problem is addressed properly. If there is an exhaust leak it must be found the patched up. Same with a faulty sensor, if it needs to be replaced than replace the unit.
Usually when a car has issues moving from park or neutral it is an early sign that the transmission has gone out. The transmission is responsible for helping the vehicle change gears and move.

I believe you will find it below the washer fluid bottle. you have to take the pannel off that is located inside the wheel well to get to it. Before you go to this trouble,try blowing out the bottle filter. To do this locate the black hose that comes out at the rear underside edge of the hood on the pasengers side of the car. Carefully pull the hose off the barbed hose connector and… Read More
Quite a big job. Pretty much the same as removing any other engine, but it looks like you have to disconnect the OS driveshaft and the prop then the housing that they connect to.

same thing as a timing belt. it connects the engine with all the other parts of the car that need to be runned. The timing belt or timing chain is used to turn the camshafts half the speed of the crankshaft. It may also turn the balance shaft, oil pump or water pump depending on the engine design.

Plug The Seat belt in.
The thermostat is located behind the radiator inlet fitting in the housing behind the gasket. Removing and putting the thermostat back in should be done a last resort. This is because it may reduce how well the vehicle cools.
175,000 miles I agree w/ the above answer.... I am no mechanic but I read along my way somewhere that high mileage for an 02 Santa Fe was 184,000.......
Most likely it is or somewhere near it. There fairly easy to spot

After you remove the plastic engine cover. You will see the front 3 plugs across the front of the engine with coilpacks on top of them. You will see 3 plug wires that go from those 3 coilpacks around the passenger side of the engine to the back side where the other 3 plugs are located. To get to those 3 plugs you will need to remove the intake plenum. This part is tricky, and… Read More
Hi, I was told that if you fill the gas tank while the car is running, the check engine light may come on, it will go off after a while of driving. I had the same intermittant problem.....
My 2002 Santa Fe with the 2.7L engine usually gives me about 17MPG during everyday use. On longer trips with a pretty heavy load of kids and suitcases, I've received up to 23MPG.
If the air bag stays on, I recommend taking this problem to the dealer. Working on a air bag gets complicated without the proper equipment. If do try,insure the battery isdisconnected. There are different sensors and what have and you can trigger the system. To be honest air bag problems get expensive and I never get envoled with. If I do , I send to the Pros.
I just did a pump on my 02 Santa Fe, I actually found it by accident, but I had to take out the rear seats. then pull up the carpet and liner, and there is a panel under where the passenger side seat was, just take it up and you should see the fuel lines and the electrical for the pump.

Could be the brake system, but most likely the front tone wheels. Replace both while you are at it = they are prone to failure, and Hyundai will not warrant it beyond 5 years despite it being a common problem.
If you follow the hose before the filter it will lead to some cone shape plastice piece that could probably be located somewhere in the fender or grill
You should always have an alignment when replacing any steering mechanism such as tie rod, ball joint etc.
