Went to start up today & only click, click. Charged up the battery for the
first time since buying new in 2001 & away it started. But now tonight I can
see that even after removing the key & locking up the dash lights remain on.
The interior lights go out on the timer OK etc. but those darn dash lights
stay on. Disconnected the battery under the hood & I could here a relay
Any ideas folks.

Since my first post I've checked everything quite carefully. The only lights
that stay on are the dash or instrument cluster lights. Nothing else.
Aside from that, the digital display (heater or radio) which is normally
bright until you turn on the headlights now is dim as if the headlights were
on - but of course they aren't.
I have checked out the online manual but the electrical schematics leave a
little to be desired. I am beginning to think that it's a relay within the
ETSCM -the M33-3 component perhaps?
I have unplugged the rheostat so I don't drain the battery & am thinking of
just wiring a toggle switch in series to it from the hot wire, as long as
nothing else is on.
A curious think too was that pulling the 10A fuse labelled 'cluster' under
the dash, did not put the lights out but prevented the car from starting
even though it turned over fine.
I am beginning to think that Hyundai is a bit weak in their documentation of
You might check all the fuses. A blown fuse can cause some odd feedback
issues. Other than that, this will be a very weird issue. If the tail
lamp relay is still open, you shouldn't have power to the dash lamps. If
the relay is closed, the tail lamps should be on as well.
I have a bit of feed back suggesting that I disconnect the daytime running
light relay under the hood (Canadian eh?). Tomorrow I'll try that & the rest
of the fuses, weather permitting. It just might be that relay though b/c
when I reconnected the battery, with doors closed, nothing on at all, as
soon as I touched the terminal with the cable I could hear a relay click
from near the location of this module.
Certainly do agree -weird.
Received the DRL module from my original dealer in Ontario & installed it
today. The problems are fixed & no wonder the online circuit diagrams didn't
seem to help - I too forgot the differences between Canadian & US vehicles.
Thanks for your help hyundaitech.
