The Hyundai Sonata Seat Belt Warning Light will blink for approximately 6 seconds each time the ignition is turned on. It is regardless of whether the belt is fastened or not.
Hyundai Sonata Airbag System
The Hyundai Sonata airbag warning light glows red for about 6 seconds when the ignition switch or engine start / stop button is in the ON position. If the warning light stays on, it means there is a malfunction with the airbag / SRS (Supplemental Restraint System).
Hyundai Sonata Hand Break or Break System
The Hyundai Sonata Brake Warning Light glows red for approximately 3 seconds when the ignition switch or engine start/stop button is in the ON position. The brake warning light remains illuminated when the parking brake is engaged. If the warning light stays on when the parking brake is released correctly, it means there is a low level of brake fluid in the reservoir. If you drive, stop as soon as possible and fill the reservoir with brake fluid.
Hyundai Sonata Bonnet
This Hyundai Sonata warning light illuminates on the dash indicating that the boot/tailgate/truck compartment is not closed correctly.
Hyundai Sonata Anti-Lock Break System, ABS
ABS (Antilock Brake System) works by using sensors on each wheel to detect if a wheel is locked. By pressing brakes hard, ABS reduces the pressure on the brakes to keep the wheel turning just at the point before it locks. This allows the driver greater control of the vehicle. The Hyundai Tucson ABS warning light comes on when the system is not working correctly. However, in this case, the standard brake will resume without the benefits of ABS.
Hyundai Sonata Electronic Stability Control or ESC
ESC (Electronic Stability Control) works by using sensors to determine where the vehicle is headed and where it is actually headed. To help stabilize the vehicle, ESC applies braking pressure to any of the vehicle's brakes and intervenes in the engine management system to help the driver keep the car on the track. If the amber ESC warning stays on, it means there is a system failure. If the ESC light blinks, it means the system is working.
Hyundai Sonata Tire Pressure
The amber tire pressure/tire pressure warning light comes on when one or more tires have been detected as inflated according to the pressures set by the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The warning light blinks for about 1 minute and then stays on if there is a fault in the TPMS or if a tire that does not contain a pressure sensor has been installed.
Hyundai Sonata Steering System
The amber steering wheel/exclamation mark is the Electronic Power Steering fault light. If you have been making frequent left/right steering movements or have put the steering in the full lock position while the engine is running, it may be a temporary failure where the system temporarily shuts off the power steering engine to prevent overheating. While the light is on, driving the vehicle will be more difficult. Check your car with a Hyundai dealer as soon as possible.
