I have the very basic model of the 2010 Hyundai Accent. As I was driving down the road a woman was nice enough to stop me and tell me my brake lights weren't on, so I pulled over and tried testing it out to see what she was talking about, every time I stepped on the breaks none of the lights came on. I went home and had my step dad take a look but nothing in the fuses were lose and none of the bulbs were burnt out, so we did some research online and noticed that Hyundai sent out a safety recall "Hyundai is recalling 1,059,824 vehicles, including the 2007-'09 Hyundai Accent, because of roll away risk and brake lights that may not illuminate. . " I am more than sure this is effecting my car as well.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Accent. The brake light switch has gone out on my vehicle. This is actually the 2nd time this has happened. It went out the first time in the 2007 or 2008 time frame. I had it replace under warranty. About a week ago the brake light switch went out again. When I went onto pepboys website and put my car information in the alert of a brake light switch recall came up. I contact Hyundai to see if my car would qualify for the recall since my switch has failed and is a 2006 model. They claim my car does not meet the recall list. I told them that my switch has already fail and they said they can't do anything about. I feel that they put a bad switch on my car and that the recall should have covered my car. I have had 2 switch fail on that car and the second was put in during the time of the recall covered but they still refuse to cover. My car is unsafe right now until I have it fixed and Hyundai claims that the problem part is not there problem.

The brake lights on my 2008 Hyundai Accent are not working. I changed the bulbs and checked the fuse - all are ok. I suspected the pedal switch that activates the brake lights might be the problem. Went online to see if I could find any other owners with the same issue, and discovered that a recall has been commenced by Hyundai for the very problem I am experiencing. However, the 2008 Hyundai Accent was not listed in the press release that I reviewed as one of the affected models. The problem may be bigger than they think. I felt that I should advise NHTSA that the Accent model may also be one of those affected. I contacted a local dealer and they did not have it in stock, but said they would get the brake pedal switch for me. In the meantime, my car is really not safe to drive without brake lights (day or night). Please get Hyundai working on this quickly, before someone gets killed, and consider whether the design problem might be affecting more models than have been identified to date.

They said any of these malfunctions could lead to a crash. I had one representative from Hyundai tell me that they don't honor NHTSA recalls.

The recall that began on September 2, 2009, campaign 092, the article cited to contact this puerto rican phone number 1-787-999-4310 but I can't get through.

He told me that since my car was having those issues that it was a safety issue and that his recommendation was that the dealership honor that and fix my vehicle, but they refuse. I have no working brake lights and I need help in resolving this issue in a timely manner. Thank you.

I began having trouble taking my car out of the park position when I pushed the brake and one day I couldn't get it to come out at all. I called my local dealership and explained the problem and took it in to be check. They told me that it was a sensor that was bad and they needed to replace it and they also informed me that I didn't have any brake lights whenever I pushed them while driving. I was having trouble for about a month leading up to the day I couldn't get it out of park. I was able to used the shift lock override to force it out, but I still didn't have brake lights. It was fixed for about $150 including parts & labor. This was very scary though because I could have easily been rear ended since drives behind me didn't know I was braking.
