Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Light of cluster not working

I bought a 2001 used Accent. THe lady o sold it to me told me that it went off all of a sudden. So I have no light in my "dash" at night.
I checked all fuses. None of them is burn. Is there anywhere else I should look?
I know that the previous owner changed the radio and put back the first one before selling it to me because when I looked to install an new radio, il notice that cables had been cut off.
Thank you!

Hi connie58,
There could be a few things that have caused this.
The most simple solution I can think of is the dimmer switch. This switch is located on ur dash near the steering wheel somewhere. Its not an ordinary switch it is one you can roll up and down, and has a lil pic of a lightbulb near it, you can't miss it.
Next we have the fuses. You can locate these fuses in the kick pannel, this is located again on the drivers side, either to your left, right or under the steering wheel. Check all fuses, find the one for you dash light cluster, and replace it regardless. Because even though it may look intact the fuse could be on its way out. A better way to check the fuse is to get a test light, hook it up to an earth post [the best place is a screw or bolt on the door] turn your car on reds ACC and take your light to the 2 pins you can see at the top of your fuse [you dont have to take the fuse out].
There are many little light bulbs in your dash, if the car has been incorrectly jump started, this could have caued them to blown, but believe me its a billion t one chance them all blowing at once. My bet is more than likely a fuse has blown or the headlight switch/dimmer switch has failed.

How do i replace the odometer cluster on a 2001 Buick Century? Odometer only light up if i hit dashboard, Then it goes out.

You dont need to replace the cluster you just need to replace the bulbs, by hitting it the bulb filment thats bad make a connection, if you remove the cluster and look at the rear of it you will see the bulbs, there are many bulbs some for the battery light and oil light, so use a flash light and when you remove a bulb shine light through the hole and see if it the correct bulb or if its a symbol bulb, most of the time the lighting bulbs use a diffrent color socket, what you do is untwist the socket then it pulls out and the bulb is on it, you then pull bulb out of socket and install new bulb on socket and twist back in, you dont need to replace the whole cluster and the bulbs are sold at any parts place, take one out and match it up it should be part # 194 bulb.

Lifter problem in 2001 Hyundai accent GL

The noise you hear could very well be a lifter. But that is not what is causing your engine light to come on. The engine light problem can be diagnosed by having the codes read. You can have this done for free at most national parts chains such as Advance or Auto Zone. Good luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
