The wife's i10 is suffering from the self-adjusting headlights. I thought the noise was a fuel pump maintaining pressure but an investigation at dusk had me sitting in the car, engine running, with the lights shining on the garage. Sure enough a whirr or two and the lights dropped and came back up.
Has anything more been discovered? Should we bother to report this under Warranty or is it just 'Character' ? My concern is come the Winter they may dip at an inappropriate time as the wife navigates around the dark, twisty scottish back roads ...

But (thinks) with her having such a generous life insurance policy and us having space in the garage for another Ducati alongside the one I already have, maybe I should just wait and see if it cures itself ...

It won't cure itself and Hyundai haven't got a clue how to fix this fault.
If you take it to your dealer, the usual thing they do is to fit a new headlight adjuster switch, this may or may not fix the problem.
Setting your original switch to position 1 sometimes lessens the problem, but in my opinion, is not a permanent fix as has been suggested on another thread.
Finally,I think this fault is common to all I10's and Hyundai need to get there act together on this one as well as other issues.

According to the dealers I've spoke to there is no fix, modifed swtich or any other miracle that cures the headlamp issue. But it is a safety concern if ( like mine ) your lights start going up and down when you're driving along the road it could also see you gain a rectification notice from the Police.

Character my arse , the car has some stock faults that appear to be getting the better of the Hyundai top brass

Yup my other half's 2009 '09' plate I10 1.2 has only 5000 miles on and has had 1 rear shock changed due to a leak and just been back for a knocking noise and guess what the other side needs replacing for same fault!
Yes struck down with the clutch judder and an 'adjustment' was made which has improved a lot but still judders now and again.
The fuel pump well is just plain noisy. (no fault as per dealership)
Headlight adjustment - well its a disgrace. No fix for a fault that occured over a year ago. Come on Hyundai!

May be looking at selling car soon as build quality well........................

I thought I would consolidate them all here :


7 Key icon flash's and car wont start (alarm issue ) does it most times.

8 Reserved ( something will turn up in the next few days to claim position 8 )
Took mine in for this and it was an immobiliser wiring fault. Mine did get worse to the point the car wouldnt start at all though

Did the dealer swear in blood on his mothers life that they found a wiring fault or did they clear the fault code and reset the ECU ? It appears Hyundai have a list of 'stock fault descriptors' that are rolled out when they dont have a clue what the fault is.

For Example :

Headlamp Fault : It's claimed a new modified switch was fitted ( There is no such thing ) : In other words they changed the switch, jiggled the wiring about and prayed to the great god EyeTen that all would be well.

Seatbelt Rattles : We've fitted new washers : In other words they sprayed a bit of silicon spray around the area and wiggled the belts, then prayed to the great god EyeTen that all would be well.


I dont want to be the bearer of bad news, but EyeTen dont exist. It would be better if they got someone to investigate these issues and fix the bloody problems.


You could say the honeymoon period is well and truely over with the i10 and the divorce courts are looking like reality.


After one year a great many i10s are noisy & rattle like Jordens private parts. I wonder what happens after 3 years. I knew there was a reason for a 5 year warranty, we're going to need it

See I am a firm believer that 80-90% of problems people lodge against Hyundai on this forum are down to lazy, and shoddy dealership service departments. I've had mine in for a few things and each has been fixed. I had a slight rattle and the pulled the drivers door, sill, and dash apart to find it a fix it. The immobiliser fault rendered the car unusable and it took 2 days in service to be fixed but 3 months later the car is still glitch free. Hyundai need to get the cane out to get there poor franchise partners in line as the negative press they are causing is building daily.

I am by no means saying that the i10 doesn't have faults, a lot of which wouldn't exist if stronger QC was introduced at Chennai, but the service departments need to stop fobbing people off and start being realistic in there approach to faults, mine does luckily.

The rattles in i10 are the issue but I have driven Golf, Passat, Auris, Focus in last few weeks- all have rattles inside with no exception- doors, dashboard, pillars. The plastics are hard and it appears that accountants got rid of any bits of tape that used to hold electric switches and cables in place.

The problem I find with i10 is really lousy dealership. they do everything not to admit fault so they don't have to fix it. I have heard before from Hyundai owners that 5 years warranty is a myth. Issues reported months ago are still not resolved.

Parked our new i10 on a hill with the handbrake on full - 10 minutes later came out and it had moved and knocked a wall over. Its not the only i10 that has done this.

And it is not only Hyundai. Other makes have the same issue just check Vauxhall, Honda, Ford etc. The issue could be caused by wrongly fitted parts or the fact that brake is applied when hot. Then metal cools down it shrinks and the friction is lost.
