Pulled into a parking lot as soon as I could. This occurred at 118,000 and 132,000 miles. Most notable when car engine is running. I was able to force the vehicle to the side of the road without incident but it easily could have gone bad on me as I was on the freeway in traffic. It would not restart so I had to have it towed to the dealer. Hyundai states that my vehicle is out of warranty due to mileage and says that there is no recall for this problem despite the obvious risks that their mechanics and other mechanics mention. Came on but the emergency flashers would not work so I had to keep pumping the brakes so nobody would run into the back end of my car.
The third generation Prius system is similar, but smaller and more efficient. When the electrical load was reduced, the engine operated normally. This is done most easily from below the car in the area near the oil filter. They gave me a loaner car and I left. I would like the cost of repairs refunded to me since Hyundai obviously knew this part was defective but didn't issue a recall to cover all affected vehicles. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who stated that the drive gasket was leaking onto the alternator and the alternator needed to be replaced. This system tests the fuel system to make sure it is not leaking fuel vapors into the air.
Once the car cooled I was able to see what happened. It nearly caused my wife to be stranded on the interstate 10hrs from home. All of the lights for abs, brakes, check engine etc. There is not one for the Sonata which has displayed similar problems. On 08-09-16, while driving on the highway to the mechanic, numerous other indicator lights on the dash began to turn on one by one.
Thinking it was an electrical issue I left it running to investigate. These can range from a faulty spark plug lead, shorted kill switch or flywheel key damage. If you know where the sensor is, you only have to unclip the old sensor and replace it with a new one. First noticed when battery light comes on at idle, showing charging problem. Because this diagnostic runs after system power down, the diagnostic status does not get reported until the next key cycle.
In those 2 years the car had trouble starting in interments. Car can be stationary or running. If isolation improves after removing a part, investigate the cause of isolation breakdown or replace the defective system. However, if this is an ongoing problem, we want to be part of documented cases with the same issue. Therefore, this is now the third alternator for our car.
The overheating, steering, and battery warning indicators illuminated and the engine stalled. Diagnostics and system status is communicated from the battery energy control module to the vehicle control interface module through serial data. I asked for a diagnostic report and he said he could only give me a copy of the service ticket. Caused car to stall and shut down while driving. Car died while my wife was driving and she had to pull quickly off to the side of the road. Again, I emphasize that this is a public safety hazard that needs to be addressed. We find that others have complained with the oil valve and alternator problem as well as the indicator lights coming on and off or staying on.
The lights on the dashboard come on the radio powers off and the wheel starts jerking back and forth and it cuts off or begins to cut off and corrects itself. Step 3 If isolation is degraded only when cold, it may be due to condensation. Mechanics who have repaired this all agree that this is a hazard and public safety issue. The leak detection pump is part of the evaporative emissions system. Donate to the Department of Automotive Technology at Weber state University here:. A low amplitude or collapsed return signal indicates a loss of resistance to chassis ground and a loss of isolation will be indicated by the hybrid powertrain control module 2. The vehicle service manual should be consulted for more information on possible causes of the fault, along with required testing.
By then damage is done. The vehicle was not repaired. Look online and view all the places that list this problem. I looked at the dashboard and saw the engine light was on. No headlights, no dashboard indicators, no brake lights, no turn signals.
