Wink 2011 Sonanta SE

Hi guys,
I bought a 2011 Sonata SE with 66k miles on it from the dealer(clean carfax). I am liking it very much. I have no words its amazing. There are just two small issues
1.) one of twenty times when i use left right turn signal indicators headlights turn off for a second and turn back on. Please suggest if you think there is any small component that i need to replace.
2.) Usually i keep it in AUTO mode but when i try to turn the stick between fog lamps and low beams it flickers the blue light on my dashboard (inside the car). i don't know if it is normal.

I just bought these bulbs waiting for the shipment. I really don't know if these bulbs are reliable.

Please help me with these issues with your advice. Thanks.

Blue light would hint it's the high-beams, I don't believe the fog light indicator is blue but can't remember (I've never seen any other car with anything other than high-beams as blue). It's possible when you are turning the dials the stalk is moving enough forward/backward to quickly flash your high-beams. The stalk may be too loose or the switch that turns the highbeams on is too sensitive.

The fog lights are also on a separate switch/dial (the inner dial, closer to the wheel) from the standard headlight settings (off, parking, auto, on), which are the outer-most dial. Some cars will turn off the fog lights when you turn the high-beams on, though I forget if the Sonata is such a car.

The combination of the two issues seems to indicate a wiring/sensor issue in the stalk.

It sounds like a switch issue to me as well. Is it still under warranty? If so, just make an appointment.

When you say switch what is it exactly. Could you show me some sample pics ?? I bought it with 66000 miles so i believe it is out of warranty. BTW i bought it from a chevy dealer.

The whole turn signal stalk would need to be changed is what folks here are saying.

That appears to be the switch. Here's a link with info on how to change it:

I've found these to be the best, in my opinion. I've used them in many other vehicles and my friends have them as well.

I mean blue lights on the dashboard. Light that lights up the stereo, clock, A/C controls etc. Does this happen for your cars as well ????
