slk70 said:I also had a similar problem, and as trebl points out, it is a wiring issue trhough the fuse box and not a sensor issue. Dealership worked with the techs and rerouted the wiring directly to the dash/display solving the problem. [EDIT] - Looking at the work order, the language is as follows: "Tech confirmed fault with engine compartment fuse box. Tech performed following repair per Hyundai Tech Line. Jumped connecter B-39 to D-12 and D-6 to B-45. Outside temperature reading normally at this time."Whether this is the best fix is unclear. My guess is there will be a TSB or even a recall notice in the near future. Limiteds are the only SF's with the problem since only they have the outside temp display.

A coolant change is both age and miles related so after a couple of years it's not really a bad idea.
at 25k miles the coolant change might be a bit early. However the induction service might be relevant. I have a 2008 santa fe ltd with the 3.3L engine.
Around 32k during cold stars the truck would stumble for a few seconds after starting, and no check engine light. i did some checking on my own and found it. the problem was an unusual amount of carbon and soot in the throttle body plate. it turns out this modern cars have an exhaust re circulating system that re routes exhaust gas back into the intake manifold and that's how the soot and build up gets there. The solution was simple, went to autozone and purchase a throttle body cleaner (4.99+tax) also went to hyundai to purchase a throttle body gasket ($3.00 + tax) then remove intake plastic tubes then 3 10mm bolts for the throttle body, you don't need to remove the harness its long enough for you to spray and clean all the build up on the plate. i currently have about 41k and issues with the engine so far... if your not mechanically incline i suggest you invest on the induction cleaning service.around 35K just to prevent any issues. hope this helps...
included other steps ??
What bothered me was that I could not find the word " Induction" on the Maintainence checklist.
Besides, all quality gasolines have additives for this sort of thing.
I have a 2007 santa fe and had it replaced under warranty
the day we got it back it started doing the same thing as before (with the fuel guage) we didnt have time to return it that day and the next time we were abe to return the car for it to be replaced they said it wasnt under warranty anymore so I had a fit right on the showroom floor and guess what... I got it repaired for free :-) with a phone call later saying how sorry they were lol
What was the outcome of your problems?
At the dealership they could not look at it right away and when I went back out to check it was fine. Has anyone had this problem of losing power on the 2011 or new Santa Fe's? I read several postings of the previous model but only one -- a 2008 -- of the current model.

I guess time will tell if it was fixed
Hope this helps you
I have the almost same problem. I have 2011 Santa Fe AWD V6. The first time it lost power on late of the June while I drove it downhill. I took it to dealership and they couldn't find any problem, no code nothing. The second time happened on Sep. 17th. Same thing happened and no code. They replaced a sensor and told me this sensor could be the problem. Now I am afraid to drive this car. I just called a lawyer to see if they can sue Hyundai or not. What did you do about your car?
Most 08's have been out of warranty for a couple of years.
The other member is correct about the drive by wire system. Especially on 4 cyl modes, dbw is very pronounce delay between throttle and the pedal sensor. Its not.much u.can .really,, besides get a v6 where more low torque is available. Another.issue u have against u is.the transmision, their units are very reluctant to downshifts, they are gear for economy.
The curb weight of the santa fe is somewhere over 4700 lbs. For.a four.banger its a tall order to accomplish good of the line acceleration.
After starting the car starts to smoke. This is the smoking video..
You'll destroy your engine if you don't repair it ASAP!
As you can imagine losing acceleration without warning is extremely dangerous and I'm concerned the next time it happens I could have a tractor trailer truck plow right over me...! The dealership cannot recreate the incident and doesn't know what the issue is. It seems like a lot of people are experiencing this issue, I don't understand how the dealership cannot know what the cause may be.
PickyP, sea2sea, or anyone else with this problem: did you ever figure out what caused the issue, and how was it resolved?
I have the Nexen, as well as had an alignment done twice for the two and half years I have had the tires and they wear out fast and uneven. Now one set is out of round.
I think you will be happy with any of these three brands above.
*flashing seat belt and batt dashboard warning light for no apparent reason
*replacement battery does not exactly install properly
For the flashing light, that indicates that there is a problem with the charging system with the on board computer, whether there is a dying battery or alternator problem (and let's hope it's the battery).
When you go look for a replacement battery, many auto part stores and even the dealers will tell you, according to the manufacture, that the replacement battery is part number 124R. DO NOT buy/use it. 124R is approximately 1/4" shorter in height than the OEM (Korean made) battery. You will run into a problem connecting the positive terminal cable not being able to secure onto the positive post on the battery properly. It will give a bad fitting and led to a bad connection, and can and will create that flashing warning lights problems. Since basically no one in here will carry the Korean made battery, your likely alternative should be part number 24F with the battery height that is exactly 232mm. Or if you can find a 124R that hasa battery height of 232mm, that would be excellent, but according to all the stores that I have looked, all 124R are 225mm in height.
After installing the battery, start the car, run on P for 2 mins, run on D (with your foot on the brake) for 2 mins, run on P with max AC for 2 mins, then run on D (with your foot on the brake) with max AC for 2 mins. Turn off engine. Turn on engine, and don't care how you accomplish this, but with the car in D, press and release the brake for approximately 25 to 30 times (drive around town?). The flashing warning light will be magically gone.
I am not a certified mechanic, so do this at your own risk. Hopefully this will help some of you frustrated Santa Fe owners.
