How to Troubleshoot a Headlight Problem on a Hyundai Sonata
If the headlights on your Hyundai Sonata are malfunctioning, they should be fixed immediately. Faulty headlights can hinder your night-time vision and lead to collisions and serious injury.
Loose connections, burned out headlight bulbs, and popped fuses are the most typical problems, and all three have a quick fix.
Make sure the engine is off and the key is out of the ignition. Allow it to cool down before checking the healdight connections. Open the hood.
Remove the dust cap and lightly pull on the electrical connector at the rear of Sonata’s headlamp bulb. If the connector comes out, securely plug it back into the headlight bulb. If the headlights are still malfunctioning, you may need to replace the bulb.
