The power locks stop working when the car is in the off position, when I turn the car on, it start working the fuel gauge go up and down fast and the go up again and stay, the interior lights work some times, at the same time in the panel, the brake, trunk and doors lights start flashing, the clock on the dash vanishes when the car is running and then comeback, I do that for the whole trip, just worry that the car caught fire...updated 05-27-15

My brake lights do not illuminate when pressing on the brake pedal, and my automatic shift is stuck in park unless I press the button in the small hole located to the upper left to unlock it. I was informed by Hyundai that it sounded like I had a broken switch located by the brake pedal and that it was causing the brake lights to not register when I pressed in the brake pedal. I have an appointment for tomorrow but if there was a recall done on other VIN numbers and mine isn't listed I'm going to be upset.
