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.

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.

The 2000 Hyundai Excel indicator light and brake light might stop working all of a sudden because of a burned out bulb. Check all bulbs on the brake lights and turn signals. This problem could also be caused by a blown fuse or a blown flasher fuse.

Many things can cause the air bag light on. Could be the passenger seat weight sensing system needs to be recalibrated or fixed. Best would be to teake the vehicle to the HYUNDAI dealership and check the codes and then go from there.

yes. you need a 4x100 bolt and a 38 to 40mm offset.

It could be have a restriction in the gas vapor purge system.

The check engine light on the Honda Pilot is an indicator that there may be a problem with the engine. This could be minor such as air or water in the gas tank or could be an indicator of something more serious.

It could be your air intake temperature sensor or maybe your mass air flow sensor

Hi check that your bulbs are all flashing if they are it could be the indicator stark scrap yard should have some in or ebay.

Well, there are a bunch of problems. If the car vibrates that means that you should check the oil. Than, if the check indicator is on, I've heard from the mecanics that the board computer has a problem. So, you have to go to the service immediately. If heard and read a lot of problems with this Check indicator. Good luck!

I am having that exact same problem with my Hyundai Accent. My heater blower only worked on the 4th setting until today that stopped working too. I'm not sure what it could be. I'm hoping someone on here can help

Well highbeams are a weird name so that's one reason things could go wrong! Another is that 1997 was a long time ago, so they're probably really old and could catch on fire. The last reason is that isn't Hyundai a car?

Have vehicle scanned to determine problem -- most auto parts stores will do this free. The light blinking (as opposed to being on solid) indicates a serious problem (such as a misfire) that could lead to damage to the engine if it is run for an extended amount of time in this condition.
