Customer Question
The ABS light, "ESC...

The ABS light, "ESC Off" light and the symbol of the car flashing light, all came on. They typically come on, last for a day, and then go off, re-appearing 3 weeks later. The car runs smoothly. Is this an issue with pre-programmed gauges set come on at a certain mileage level? Car is an '07.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

Just the abs light, along with the other 2 flashing symbols.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Hyundai?

Sante fe '07, large engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've had it in at my local mechanic, because there was an issue with the gas gauge as well. He scanned the car, and changed 2 gauges, one in the gas tank (that is now working well) and the other one was for this problem that we're still getting. He said he scanned the car, and nothing else showed up...but we're still getting these 3 lights coming on (again, every 3 weeks or so, lasting for a day, and then going off again).

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

At this point I'm not sure if I should continue trying with my local guy, or just go to a dealer. I'm assuming it's a

Do you feel any pulsation at the brake pedal when brakes are applied?

No, there is nothing. Car drives fine. It is just these 3 lights that come on (together at the same time) but intermittently. They come for a day, and then go off, and then return 3 weeks later. This cycle has gone for a couple months. The car drives well.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
My questions are: is there an underlying problem, or are these gauges timed to go on like this at certain mileage/dates? Can a mechanic at a local garage fix this, or only Hyundai? I brought it to my local garage, and he thought he had changed out the guaue that would fix this problem, but 3 weeks later, I have the flashing lights back again. So, do I return to the independent mechanic to scan the car again, or should I just be going to Hyundai. And if I go to the dealer, what do you think the issue is? What needs to be changed out? Is it just a matter of changing these gauges?
Hyundai Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

Sorry about the wait. On this vehicle all these lights come on at the same time. That does not mean there are three different issues, it is possible the the component affected provides reference to all three systems. To pinpoint need to start by checking codes with a compatible scan tool. It does not necessarily need to go to the dealership, a lot of independent repairshops do have the scantool required avalable and will be able to repair the issue.

Since there is no driving or braking issue, the culprit could be a faulty wheel speed sensor, steering angle sensor or faulty abs module but that can be checked better once the codes are read.
