What type of parts store automatic transmission fluid can be used in a 1999 Hyundai Elantra?

"any brand of dextron III will work"This is wrong. Use only the approved Hyundai ATF, SP-III. If that is absolutely not available in cases such as myself (in Alaska with no Hyundai dealer within 700 miles), ATF+4 should be fine (exceeds specs). Dextron III does not meet the specifications of the Hyundai ATF, and Hyundai transmissions are very picky.I agree with the above. Dextron by itself is not enough. A chart I have recomends factory fluid,but if not available,Mopar makes an additive that should be added with Dextron.

2000 Hyundai Elantra air bag light stays on?

For a Hyundai Elantra the light staying on means you have a fault code in the airbag computer. This could be a problem with the seat belt buckle, seat belts, airbags, clock spring or computer itself. The vehicle needs to be scanned to see what error code is present. An approved scanner must be used or it will not tell you what the error is and you will be wasting your time and money. If there is a fault your airbag system will generally not work depending on the severity of the problem. For your safety and the safety of others, this should be seen to ASAP. By the way - You cant just turn it off!!!
