2003 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #3

My neighbors informed me that my brake lights were stuck on. One of them researched and read that it may be the M48 stop lamp switch. We found the plastic backing portion from the contact plate that pushes the switch in. It was broken in pieces and laying on the floor mat below the brake pedal. He replaced it with something that is temporarily doing the job. I will be taking my car into the Hyundai dealer next week to have this fixed. They will also be replacing my gas tank that got punctured while they were replacing the valve-canister cl, canister assy., and valve-purge contr. Back in Feb. 2014 when I could not easily get fuel into the vehicle. I believe the fuel issue should be a recall as well from all of the people I have seen on the internet searching for resolutions to the same problem with their Hyundai's.

My backup lights, cornering lights, and brake lights all went out on both sides of the rear of my car at the same time. The fuses are fine and the bulbs are fine. Now I do not have any working lights on the back of my car.
