My 2001 Elantra battery dies every time I forget to turn the head
light off. When left in the on mode if you remove the key they turn
off as they should but for some reason something still on and drains
the battery. The switch on the control stalk is a bit twitchy as in if
you barely rotate it the head lights will go off and on much like a
micro switch. I here the rellay switch on and off when I rotated the
switch with the car running. This has been happening for the last year
but I generally remember to manually turn the switch to off and its
not an issue, but today my girl friend got stuck at work because she
forgot to turn the switch to off.
On another note a few years ago the power door locks stopped working
as well, when you put the key in the drivers door and unlock it its
supposed to unlock all doors but it doesn't. I checked the wiring
diagram and looked for faults but found nothing. I did not want to dig
into the door so the fault might be the key switch.
don't know if they are related or not. Any ideas?
