Dear friends Hi,

I own the Santa Fe 2.0 diesel since 2002. Through all these years I enjoyed this car without particular problem. Today, while driving suddenly, the check light lighted on and the engine went off. Parked for a while on the right and started the engine. The Check Light remained on and I drove till my destination few kilometres away.

When restated the engine some hours later the Check Light went off and drove without problem.

Any experience about this problem please?

Many thanks in advance.:00000732:

Well, the light comes on when a problem has occurred, so there was some issue.
Also the engine stopped.
However, after your restart everything was good again.
When at following rides no problem found by the ECU it will put the light out again.
But it will have stored the previous error code, which remains in memory untill cleared by a scanner.
So, to prevent it from happening again, of course at the most unwanted time, I would check the codes with a scanner to see what that problem was, it might come back. You then can check that item, being maybe a connector problem, a wiring problem or whatever had been given by that code.
This might prevent it from happening again.
Good luck,
Paul
