Has anyone else had this issue?
I have an 09 Sonata I purchased 7/31. The radio is being replaced due to bad tuning control knobs but I am also having an issue with my dash lights. In the beginning I only noticed this with the lights in AUTO mode. There were several times I would start the car and the headlights would come on but the dash lighting would not.
When the service tech inspected the car he could not make it act up. Yesterday it acted up and I went to the dealer this morning and he saw it wasn't working everytime the lights were turned on. He's going to order a new switch.
This evening the problem is worse. Now every time I turn on my lights the dash lights do not turn on. If I sit there and slowly turn the lights on I hear a relay click and I see the dash lights flash quickly. After a couple of times I have been able to get the lights on. This is every interior light that would come on with the lights turned on, the dash, stereo, a/c controls and glove compartment light.
I am starting to wonder if this is actually a switch problem, or possibly a relay that is crap.
Has anyone else experienced this issue with their 2009 Sonata?
Overall I really like this car and I am just curious if someone else had this issue and what the problem was. Would give me information to point the service department to.
