2014 HYUNDAI ELANTRA ELECTRICAL SYSTEM PROBLEMS

 

2014 Hyundai Elantra owners complained that the brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate allowing the brake light switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released. If the brake light switch plunger does not retract as it should when the brake pedal is not being pressed, the brake lights may stay illuminated preventing accurate communication to following vehicles that the vehicle is slowing or stopping. Additionally, if the brake switch plunger is not retracted, then the transmission can be shifted out of PARK without depressing the brake pedal. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

Summary of Complaint

 

MY DAUGHTER ATTENDS A UNIVERSITY IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA. I BOUGHT HER THIS CAR THINKING IT WOULD KEEP HER SAFE ON THE HECTIC FREEWAYS. THREE TIMES NOW THE CAR HAS STALLED ON THE FREEWAY. EACH TIME THE TRAFFIC WAS MOVING VERY SLOWLY WITH STOP AND GO TRAFFIC. I ADVISED HER TO TAKE IT TO THE NEAREST DEALERSHIP AND SHE DID. THEY CALLED HER AND ASKED TO KEEP THE CAR BECAUSE THEY WERE UNABLE TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM SO THEY COULDN’T DIAGNOSE IT. SHE PICKED THE CAR UP THE NEXT DAY AND IT STILL WASN’T DIAGNOSED.   I’VE SEEN FORUMS ON THE INTERNET WHERE THIS PROBLEM SEEMS TO RECUR WITH HYUNDAIS AND IS TRACED TO THE 1) MAF SENSOR 2) FUEL SYSTEM; PUMP, INJECTORS, FILTER 3) CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

 

IF A TECHNICIAN HAS TO “DUPLICATE” THE PROBLEM IN ORDER TO DIAGNOSE IT, IT MAY NEVER BE FIXED! NOW I TELL MY DAUGHTER TO STAY IN THE SLOW LANE JUST IN CASE. SO MUCH FOR “SAFETY”. *TR
