working with these types of tiures on a daily basis ive seen inexpereineced lads break the sensor mounted at the valve stem (inside the tire of course) if your display tells you which tire is low i would have it removed and inspect the sensor. that is if oyur pressures are set corectly, also there is sometimers a reset button and just plain driving around will someitmes clear it to normal.

the sensor in the tire may be faulty. If you have taken it and checked the air pressure in the tires already and it stays on then you probably have a faulty sensor. try airing the tire up a little more and see if it goes out. If not you may need to go to the dealer. They should be able to connect to the computer and verify the faulty sensor. Did you air up all the tires? Some systems will only tell you a tire is low and not which tire it is so air them all up too!

A complete check-up of the car which should include but not be limited to:
  1. Change the oil (when was the last time you changed it?) Change the oil filter & the air filter (again, when were they changed last?)
  2. Check the coolant and brake fluid
  3. Check the brake pads - inspect all lights including turning signals (for safetys sake)
  4. Check the air pressure in the tires (including your spare tire) Check your car's alignment, this can cause uneven wear on your tires and it will believe it or not contribute to making the trip more exhausting.




Make sure you get a good rest the night/day before you depart. - if you begin to doze off dont hesitate to stop at a rest stop. Dont fight against your body, if you are tired, stop and take a 30 minute power nap, wash your face and drink a cup of coffee before you get back on the road.
Make sure you have a bottle of water in the car and plenty of good music to listen to. - Speed wise I suggest you dont travel at more than 10mph over the speed limit, traveling a little over (up to 10 mph) is tolerated by police, but I strongly sugest going 5 mph over the limit, set the cruise control and enjoy the trip without worrying about potential fines. If you do the math, the difference in time traveled is not so great:
speed limit = 70 mph (just as an example) 1300 miles @ 70 mph = 18 hours 36 minutes 1300 miles @ 75 mph = 17 hours and 20 minutes 1300 miles @ 80 mph = 16 hours 15 minutes the difference between traveling 75 or 80 is only 1 hours and 5 minutes. Not worth risking a fine for

The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.

Check the Lemon Laws on your car, seems something like 3 repairs for the same problem with no resolution... Go online or ask the dealer and also on the back of every repair invoice from a dealer it should give the regulations for resolution and Lemon Laws... hope this helps... or simply take it to a different dealer for inspection...

It may still be under warranty. Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), or call them to find out if it's still under warranty. If so, take the vehicle in and they will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (warranty repair, or parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

Hello Friend, If you checked all your fuses in the fuse panel box, maybe your stereo has an inline fuse that blew out. Sometimes there is a fuse in the back of stereo cabinet. remove from dash and check. Happy to help, Tim. Thanks

Interesting problem.. since not US spec. Is there a 'remote keyless (fob)' programmed for this vehicle? That's the only way to DE-arm the immobilizer (anti-theft) feature (based on US specs). Unless you have this key fob (keyless entry remote... which must also be programmed for this vehicle), the only other way is wait 5 minutes with the existing key in the ignition, then it should start (US specs). You will still need to have an 'ACTIVE' keyless remote programmed for this vehicle... otherwise, you'll continue to run into this problem.

Your 2008 Elantra fog lamps are probably still under warranty. Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership) or call the nearest one. Give them your vehicle VIN and ask them if the fog lamps are still under warranty. If they are, they will replace them for FREE!
