check the deck lid latch to ensure the wire harness did not get pulled off somehow... That would be the only thing I can think could cause the boot ajar light to stay on.

They can be hard to find. Do you remember where the water dripped on your driveway after parking. That's where the water came from. It will be in the area of the firewall since that's where the evaporator is located. It may drip on the frame and run down from there so you'll have to get under there when the engine is not hot and use a flashlight to look everywhere. If you're lucky a little water will still drip helping you find it. Blowing through the drain hose is the best way to clear it. Compressed air is even better.

The vibration and rubbing may be separate issues. There could be many causes for vibration, ranging from low fluid, sticky rack valves, etc., to the tires simply grapping and releasing on the pavement. If it only does it under heavy use, such as when standing still and turning alot, then I suggest not doing that. It is hard on a car to turn the steering wheel when the car is not moving.

There are few models which have this option and few don't have it.The cars sold in states US usually do not have this option pre installed. However, they could get a universal kit for the same. There are universal kits available in the market for Elantra. You need to check the same with the person at local garage or dealer.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If the compressor is cycling on and off too quickly; that is usually a sign that the AC system is low on refrigerant. If you have the vehicle's AC checked by a professional and they can't find a leak right away; be sure and have them inject a ultraviolet dye into the system that will circulate and detect the leak if one is present.

I'm sure the owner's guide has the necessary info and there is a 'recalibration' procedure that needs to be followed. If you don't have the guide anymore, it is likely available from the Hyundai support website.
