Brake Light On Problems of Hyundai Elantra
Hyundai Elantra owners have reported 20 problems associated with brake light on (under the service brakes category).
#1 - Brake Light On problem of the 2006 Hyundai Elantra
The car involved was a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. The VIN of this Elantra is KMHDN46DX6_. Hyundai recently had a recall on brake light switches. Unfortunately this applies to the 2007 Elantra and I have the 2006. My brake lights were completely out. After checking the fuses and the bulbs I realized it was the recently recalled faulty brake like switch to blame. $155 later it's repaired. They really need to include other years and models on this recall, and should be paying for this repair. I have seen numerous other complaints online from other consumers with similar issues. Someone could have rear ended me and I could have died had someone not told me my brake lights were out. It was 08/25/13 when this brake light on issue occurred.

#2 - Brake Light On problem of the 2010 Hyundai Elantra
The vehicle involved is a 2010 Hyundai Elantra touring. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was KMHDC8AE6A_. My vehicle previously failed a state safety inspection for failed brake lights just several months after purchase (October 2010). Just prior to this failed inspection, I'd noticed that the "esc off" light on the dash would turn on unexpectedly. My local Hyundai dealership repaired the brake light switch, which also remedied the "esc off" light issue. Just over a month ago, the "esc off" light on the dash again began to turn on without reason. A few days ago, while merging onto an interstate near my home, a vehicle behind mine barely avoided an accident with me when I had to suddenly slow to make a merge. The driver kindly alerted me that he did not notice any brake lights when I suddenly stopped. So, it seems as if I am again going to have to have the brake light switch, which has already been a known problem in a number of Hyundai vehicles, repaired. This brake light on problem happened on 04/06/2013.

#8 - Brake Light On problem of the 2006 Hyundai Elantra
The car involved was a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. Brake light switch failed and while traveling on vacation had car on cruise control and brake pedal did not deactivate the cruise control. Have not used cruise control since but brake lights still don't work and it is affecting cars remote start that the dealer installed. Car will not shut off buy depressing brake pedal.

#9 - Brake Light On problem of the 2007 Hyundai Elantra
The vehicle involved is a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. A friend driving behind me noticed my brake lights not working when approaching a red light. When we parked we tested them and none of the rear brake lights work. I do not know how long my brake lights have not been working but it is a major safety issue considering I drive in rush hour traffic in a city daily. There is currently a recall (campaign 09v122000) that I would have expected to include the 2007 Hyundai Elantra that I drive, but it appears that my particular VIN is not included (yet). I am also bothered that I had to do all this research. When the car dealership and the Hyundai customer service entered my VIN, this recall doesn't even show up as a possible inclusion. I understand my vehicle was not part of the recall but considering other vehicles of my make, model, and year are susceptible to this particular recall, I would have hoped that it would red flag other vehicles that could be susceptible. Or at the very least, when a recall does occur, other owners of similar vehicles should be informed in an effort for those owners to watch out for the safety issues that may arise. The failure date was Sunday, November 18, 2012.

The car was a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. My wife noticed her brake lights were not working. I looked into and found that there is a recall for the stop light switch for her make, model, and year. The recall is NHTSA campaign 09v122000. We contacted Hyundai customer service and gave them her VIN, and they said her vehicle had no recalls. We took her car to the local mechanic to get repaired. It turns out that it was the stop light switch that was defective and it was replaced. It cost us $70 to have fixed. The mechanic stated that he could not believe our vehicle wasn't covered under the recall because he has had alot of vehicles with that same issue.

#16 - Brake Light On problem of the 2008 Hyundai Elantra
The car is a 2008 Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is KMHDU46D58_. Faulty brake light switch caused brake lights to stop functioning as well as preventing automatic transmission from shifting into reverse or drive from park, without using shift lock over-ride. No crashes occurred as helpful motorist notified me of brake light malfunction. There was a recall by NHTSA for earlier model Hyundai Elantras - the 2008 models should be added to the recall. The shift lock issue was a daily occurrence. I had no idea both problems were caused by the same failure. As my car is relatively new and still under warranty I was able to take it to a Hyundai dealership for repair under warranty. If these brake light switches are still faulty, there could be serious accidents. This needs to be address by the manufacturer. The old part is not available as it is in the possession of the dealership. This problem occurred on Jul. 31, 2009.
#17 - Brake Light On problem of the 2007 Hyundai Elantra
Own a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. Last year I had to take it to the dealer after the shift gear locked on me in the drive position. I was unable to move the shift to the parked position had to use a screw driver to manually release the gear and shifted to park. I drove my car home that day the next day I used a screw driver again and shifted to drive and drove the car to the dealer. On the way to the dealer other driver on the road blew their horns alerted me that I had no brake lights. Eventhough my head lights and rear lights were on. I pulled over and sure enough the brake lights were not working. I again went through the motions with the shifter and manage to drive the car to the dealer with the emergency flashers on. At the dealer they told me that the brake switch that operated the brake lights and shift gear burnt out and was replaced. I expressed the seriousness of the situation, driving around with no brake lights and the dealer just brushed it off and told me that I would not have the problem again. Well yesterday (9/11/08) it happened to me again on my way to my job in jersey city new jersey. The shifter locked in the drive position and the brake lights were out again. Again I had to manually shift the gear to park then back to drive in order to drive to my job a few minutes away from the incident. At 11pm I drove from my job to my home, without brake lights. This morning I drove my car under the same conditions to the Hyundai in north plainfield, new jersey to get the car repaired. Again I expressed the seriousness of this situation how it could cause a serious accident. The dealer again indicated that the problem was caused by a faulty brake switch, they changed the switch and told me that the problem was repaired that I should not experience it again. I am reporting this to your agency because this is a life threatening situation having no brake lights and shifter locking into place without any warning. I feel the car should be recalled. This brake light on problem happened on Sep. 11, 2008.
#18 - Brake Light On problem of the 2007 Hyundai Elantra
The vehicle involved is a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. Hyundai didn't fully assess recall id # 09v122000 on the brake stop light. Mine has malfunctioned twice in 1. 5 years, yet they are now telling me that I am not a part of the recall. This is a very serious issue that can also involve the cruise control not stopping, shifting problems, and a possible rear-end accident. This needs to be looked in to - more people than originally estimated can be at serious risk - not to mention more people are paying to having this fixed by their dealer (I. E. Me) than there should be!. It was Aug. 17, 2010 when this brake light on issue happened.
#19 - Brake Light On problem of the 2006 Hyundai Elantra
The car involved is a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is KMHDN46D26_. I had no brake lights the cause was a broken brake light switch by the brake pedal which I had to replace myself. This brake light on issue occurred Mon., Mar. 3, 2008.
#20 - Brake Light On problem of the 2002 Hyundai Elantra
The vehicle having this issue was a 2002 Hyundai Elantra. Driving 25 mph - approached stop sign - brakes failed completely, no pedal, pumped brakes, no petal and no stopping - no warning, no brake light on dash - ran through a stop sign unable to stop - no one was coming fortunately - pulled over to side of road - has vehicle towed to dealership. Was advised my vehicle was 3 months out of warranty and repairs would cost $1400. 00 to replace a leaking abs anti lock brake module. I questioned why all brakes failed at once without warning since this is a dual master cylinder system which should segregate braking front from rear. I also questioned why such a serious defect would not be covered since this car only has 40,000 miles, is 3 months beyond the 5 year applied warranty, and reportedly has a 10 year, 100,000 warranty. I am concerned because we have another exact same year and model car in our family. I called the Hyundai 800 line for customer support. They advised me they would look at it and get back to me within 2 business days. It was Monday, December 3, 2007 when this brake light on issue occurred.
