Top light works, blinkers work and hazards work. From what I can tell on the fuse diagram, there’s only one fuse for the brake light switch - unless I’m missing something? Could there be another fuse that would do it?
If it’s not a fuse, and it’s clearly not the brake pedal switch since the top light works, could it be an issue with the turn signal switch interrupting the brake lights somehow? Loose wire or something? That’s a whole other ball of wax to undertake. Thanks y’all!

Im seeing a fuse called "Module 2" 10 amp and "brake switch" 7.5 amp and a "stop lamp" 15 amp.

They look to be located inside the vehicle. check and report back. thanks

Are you talking about the red lights in the lower bumper or some lights in the main tail-light group?

The reflects in the bumpers are not lit unless your husband replaced them with the Korean or European units.

Did you check the light bulbs? If there aren't any....

This thread requires a picture pointing out what doesn't work

So after a few days of over-diagnosing and life chaos, Hector at Autozone told us that a blown fuse can blow the bulbs.
I was not aware of this.
Checked the bulbs today, and the second filaments were indeed busted. I replaced them. I feel like a dork.

Hector need to stick to handing parts across counter.. Blown fuse makes open circuit,, how do you blow a bulb when circuit is open and no power get to the load (bulb) ???

Got lights that dont work,, look at bulb first,, it is weak point in circuit

He may have said it the other way around, I had a fussy baby with me. Regardless, the person you’re being so condescending about actually helped me. I hadn’t the faintest notion of dual filament bulbs there. I don’t know much about cars, and I’m trying to fix my own things when I can. You honestly don’t have to be a jerk.

If the bulbs were blown like you said, then the 1st post about hazards/blinkers working is not true. Glad you got it fixed, but it took too long.

reminds of some service writers I know...

Yes, my hazards and blinkers were working. Honestly why would I lie about that??? I came here for help to get it fixed, what good would being untruthful do? Only one filament in each of the dual filament bulbs was broken. I checked both of those things before I even came here to ask. Like I said. And yes, it took me a few days - my husband and I have a newborn, and we work opposite shifts with no child care and we have one car. Sometimes things just take a little longer.

Understand, I think a picture will help next time for sure. I see the bulb is above the blinker, so i was incorrect. It seemed you stated the bulb was working with hazards, but i see they are independent bulbs now. Congrats too.

My 2013 Fe limited right rear brake lights go out. If u bang on the casing 4 times they all turn on. Fuses don't blow out either... they prevent a fire due to a major electrical issue.

I'm calling Hyundai main office for a recall case. All should do the same

The YF Sonata had bad sockets for the brake lights, the contacts were weak, and would get bad connections to the bulb,I had to bend mine to get them to work reliably, maybe the banging is a bad bulb, or loose socket

Thanks, when I hit the right caseing, all 3 bulbs come on. What could that be?

just a pain to open these casings too

I have seen a bad bulb, corroded socket, or weak contacts cause this.
There is usually a harness connector that connects the small wiring harness for the bulbs to the rest of the car, it could have a bad ground connection in there as well
