I just finished installing my new tail lights today, and they look great. So I decide to show off my new euros. I have a problem now though.

When pulling out of the driveway my automatic shifter wouldn't move, the button wouldn't push in, I thought it was kind of odd, so I over rid it, everything was fine, until I came to my first turn to brake, it was as if my driver side breaks didn't work and I could feel the steering wheel drift to the right, being rather worried then I went back home, as I pulled in the driveway my CEL came on. I shut the car off looked around for some obvious answer, nothing, so I started the car back up, CEL still on, shifter has the same problem etc...

I took the battery off now also to see if I can reset the ECU, maybe it was a computer problem but any help would be extremely comforting.

I tried the ECU, the CEL went away for a short while, but came back, I've checked absolutely everything I could think of, fuses etc... nothing seems to be abnormal, but something is freaking out half my tib.

If you had a problem with your car...and it still persists, why would you want to reset the CEL? Obviously, the car has a problem You just don't ignore it. Disconnecting the battery won't do anything either. The computer stores codes from the CEL for the dealership to see. Bring it in and get it fixed. Sounds like a braking system problem to me. Never heard of this happening before, but bring it in. You dont screw around when your brakes don't work

I'm good to go now, I missed a few fuses, some were taped up inside the car at the top, I believe it was fuse number nine.

So how did you fix it? Or did you bring it in? Or what did you do? <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

I just replaced the #9 fuse, thats what it's labled on hyundai's web tech, because I checked that to see what that all controlled, and it controlled alot of the electronic functions including the A/T switch.

But I had missed checking 4 fuses on the inside of the car, they were at the very top with tape over them<img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle> I guess that would mean that they were very important.

I think what had happened was when I was installing my new tails, I pinched a wire, and took out the fuse in the process, I found a wire that I had caught and got it loose and checked it for actual damage, nothing wrong exept that it was caught behind a bolt. Replaced the fuse after I found this and all was fine from there on.

Nothing else wrong to this day.
