Hello again!

The ABS and TCS lights are staying on, I tried pressing the TCS button but it doesn't turn off the light. I checked the connectors on the front wheels and they look good and are not hooked up.

Anyone have any ideas on what else I can check out?

The light might be staying on because they are not hooked up. Since no signal as passing through the sensor, it may be causing the light to illuminate.

Have you had new pads put on recently or not had new pads for a long while?

Since having new pads on my XG30 the ABS/TCS light has a mind of it's own. I haven't had it looked into but it started soon after having new pads. It comes on more often when it is wet.

Sorry, don't know the real cause but hope it helps.

Mine, too! I just bought a 2003 Elantra (only 37K on it!) and the ABS and TCS lights come on and stay on, but only when the underside of the car is wet. They eventually go off, which indicates to me that perhaps the sensor itself is at fault -- just getting damp. Is this somthing I need to worry about right away or can I wait until I have some $ in the bank? In other words, am I playing Russian roulette? And how much is the Hyundai dealership going to soak me for?

My neighbor is a mechanic and can handle most of my regular car maintenace issues. Is this something a moderately talented home mechanic can fix or does it require dealership attention?
