Hyundai Santa Fe 2004 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Santa Fe here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Starting up a Santa Fe
Driving it more regularly is not the answer; there is a drain on the battery when the car is sitting that is causing it to go flat. The first thing to do is to check that there are lights, like courtesy lights, boot lights, glove box lights etc. that are staying on instead of switching off when they should. Computers can be a source of a drain if they don't go on to stand-by mode when the car is switched off. I would suggest you take it to another auto elec and have them thoroughly check it; they should be able to find the fault.
Changing tyres on a Hyundai Santa Fe
The most popular A/T tyres in your size are the Goodrich All-Terrain and Cooper ATR. Both are quite good highway tyres with some off-road capability, but both are a compromise in that neither is as good on the highway as a dedicated highway tyre would be. They both have a fairly heavy block tread pattern for off-road use, and that means the on-road performance is diminished a little and they will be a little noisier.
Key colour purple
IF POSSIBLE, find the original master key so you can program your new one. If you can't,, if you lose the key you'll have to buy a full set of new keys and locks, including the boot and ignition locks, and replace the immobiliser. This costs about $1000 plus fitting. Hyundai has dropped this system because of such problems.
