i recently blew the ecu fuse due to an o2 sensor melting to the exhaust pipe. after replacing the fuse the car started and ran fine but the interior lights, sunroof, stereo, hazards, clock, rear defrost, and brake lights do not work. i don't really want to take it to a mechanic to take a look (broke fawker) and i really don't want to take it to the dealer and have them tell me my warranty is voided. no fuses are blown. i'm thinking it's a ground wire or something but don't understand why those particular things are out and not other electrical components. the cruise control which is on the same panel as the rear defrost and hazards is fine. snybody have any ideas on what's wrong or can anyone tell me how to check the wiring and or ground wires.

That's alot of stuff to go out. Did you check the power distribution box under the hood?

Sounds like a couple more fuses blew man. Mine did the same thing. Just go to a local car parts store and pick up a package of fuses.

fuses blow for a reason. There is a problem with the electrical system. Changing fuses is only a temperary fix. Find out what the real problem is<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Naw its sounds like you blew a 40 or 60 engine fuse. Not the tiny little turds located in the interior but under the hood there are typically 1-4 larger group fuses take a look at those. They are probably 2-3 bucks a piece tops and you wont have to worry about testing your system unless there still is a short. My 2 cents. In the time it takes one of those bad boys to blow your 18 gauge wire could be close to flaming.

did you check the wire on the o2 sensor that melted. maybe the wires are touching and shortening out. Also, check all the fuse in the kick panel.

it happened to me when I installed my rear strut bar. the metal plate that cover the strut touched the wire on my hatch light and shorted every interior lights and accesries.

i checked the clock, lighter, dome light fuses and they were fine. It was one of the other fuse that blew.

hyundai have some fvcked up wiring schematics. So, check all the fuse in the kick panel. even if it's not labeled to your lights and acc.

Mine work just fine now... had me worried thought.
