It is on the map light console. I guess you year does not have it. It is a button labeled Dome.

Thanks much! (no mine definitely doesn't have it perhaps being the very first batch of CM generation, and / or being for US market) Appreciate the info here.

clueless dealer

It is amazing how many posts I have seen about the know dome light issue but when I called Larry H. Miller Hyundai in Albuquerque today the service department said they have never heard of any dome light problems??? I guess I know what dealer to stay away from.

The light which illuminates my radio and map in my 2008 Santa Fe has gone dim and I cannot read the map or radio. It has been suggested to replace the entire radio/map unit at about $500. Does anyone know a way to fix the light without replacing the entire radio?

There is no front switch in my 12 for the rear dome light, did you install one ?


My rear dome will not work off any of the doors.

Are you referring to the backlighting in the radio etc. The overhead light at the front windshield is referred to here as the Map light but some might call it a dome even though there is on further back. IF you are referring to back lighting the knob at the lower left dash area in the switch cluster controls all the back lighting intensity. Someone might have adjusted it.

I think none of the above, Tripplec. I think the OP on that one is talking about the display illumination on the radio/nav system... hence the mention of not being able to see the map or see the radio settings.

To the OP: When you say 'has gone dim', do you mean it really is dim (lit, but not producing much illumination) or all the way gone? It would be quite unusual for the light itself to fail since, as I recall, is an edge lit LCD using LED for the light, and they tend to last a lot longer than any 2008 model could have run by now.

I had the same problem on my 2010 Santa Fe. When front door is opened, the rear dome light comes on OK but the front light does not work.

Based on comments I saw on the internet, I assumed that the diode in my overhead light asm had blown. So I did the following:
1) Removed the overhead light asm by removing 2 Phillips screws, then pulled asm down from ceiling & unplugged cable.
2) Removed electrical board from overhead light asm by removing 4 Phillips screws and unsnapping 2 black plastic tabs.
3) Soldered another diode right next to the existing one (I did not bother removing the old one). I made sure that diode orientation is the same (i.e.- silver bar is on the same side of both old & new diode)
4) Reattached electrical board to overhead light asm.
5) Plugged cable back in, and replaced the overhead light asm.

This fix worked like a champ! Total repair time = 30 minutes. Total cost = $2.02. I bought 10 relatively beefy diodes from Amazon.com, and now I have 9 spares. For the exact diode that I used, so to Amazon.com and search for B009IN1KB8.

Geez .. 1KV @ 10A. Don't think you'll need to worry about overloading one of those!
