I had my check indicator light on and the first time is was a sensor that controlled the amount of fuel going to the engine, it failed and was starving the engine of fuel. I had to have the sensor replaced (expensive)
Second time it was the Oxygen sensor that goes into the flexible exhaust pipe. The pipe had developed a leak and was causing the sensor to go off. I had the pipe replaced and reset the sensor by disconnecting the battery for an hour or two. It seemed to do the trick but the exhaust guy said the sensor is barely holding in there and will eventually fail.
The MIL (malfunction indicator lamp/check engine light) can be set by anything from a loose gas cap to an engine perfomance issue. If the light is steadily illuminated it can be driven but should be checked out sooner than later. If light is flashing do not drive the vehicle.
First thing to check is the pcv valve.
If you're getting an engine warning light on your Hyundai Accent, oil could be leaking into the exhaust valve. The could also be a problem with the catalytic converter.
Hyundais have a plastic reservoir that can be cut through by flying debris. OR it could be the pump. OR you could check to see if the hose has become disconnected.
To buy a used Hyundai Accent, a good place to look is a used car dealership such as Carmax. Hyundai Accents are decently popular cars, so finding one somewhere won't be very difficult.
There could be a shortage in the wiring that goes to the fuse compartment that could be causing it to do that.
A blinking or flashing check engine light in any Hyundai is indicative of a misfire taking place. It could be due to a faulty ignition.coil, leaky ignition wires or bad or worn spark plugs.

When my check engine light comes on, it is caused by the temperature sensor not working. As soon as the light comes on, my temperature drops to cool. If the light goes out, the temp gauge returns to normal.
