They told me I needed a new battery. No word about the light and nothing on the bill that it was fixed.

Will check it when I get home. I changed the left brake light last week. The tail lights were fine then.

Go to Advance Auto and have them run a battery test and it will tell you if you need a new battery or not.
I'm also in Tampa and my 2009 Sonata battery only lasted 2 years due to the wear and heat.

I think I need a battery which is being discussed in another thread.

This one is complaining that the dealer said nothing about a tail light out. And let me leave with it out.

Or so it seems. Will check when I get home.

Is that bulb hard to change?
I did the left brake light last week.
Was afraid to do the third brake light.
Can I do the tail light?

Move the trim panel, and pop the socket out of the lamp housing.

Remove bulb, look and see if it 1 filament or 2 filament bulb... if 1, it be 1156, if 2, it be a 2357 ---> be aware of the staggered pins on outside of the base, this is to align bulb correctly in socket so tail light illuminate low watt filament, and brake light illuminate the brighter high watt filament... look at inside of socket and note the deep slot and short slot to match the pins on base of bulb..

Go here for similar topic, it has my pics loaded for reference --> http://www.hyundai-forums.com/t54024-2000-...tail-lights.htm

I bought whatever brakelight bulb Advanced Auto said. The tail light was fine at the time.
Anyway, it all seems fine still. Don't know why the dealer inspection paper said otherwise.

Thanks for the info.
