Great, now it seems that your car is running fine now. One cannot rely on the Hyundai service personnel.
Have more and more miles of safe driving.

Hello t-bhpians,

I'm back with a new electrical issue with my i10. This is a pretty serious one. When I park my car at night, the parking lamps turn on by themselves. I went to Advaith twice. But they gave up within half an hour because they were not able to reproduce the issue. Today morning, the battery ran out of charge. I'm guessing the parking lamps might be on whole night. Anyone else faced this issue? If yes, what was the resolution.

Once the issue happens, if I turn on and off the headlamps, the issue goes away.

And the issue started happening since last month. I had been to Advaith Hyundai to replace my broken tail lamp assembly. I actually told them this. They verified the connections on the tail lamp and found everything to be fine. But somehow I suspect, since the tail lamp also involves parking lamps, there is an issue with their job. Or it might be a plain co-incidence that the issue started from that day.

Thanks!

Your parking lamps are getting direct 12v supply even with your switch off

since you say it becomes normal once you turn the headlamp switch on and off , to me it looks like an issue with the headlamp switch stalk.

Was any job done recently on the control stalks/steering column or was the dashboard opened for some job?

Hi,

Just a quick question - Did it rain just before this problem started ? Or did you drive in any area with a lot of water ? Or did you give the car for a wash recently ?

Lights coming on automatically, point to a short happening somewhere, which most likely is due to presence of water somewhere in the electrical circuit. Or it could be attributed to rats having chewed the wire somewhere.

The best DIY here would be to park your car in direct sunlight for 5-6 hours and then give it a shot.

Please keep us posted on how the car has been behaving lately and what steps have you taken.



Cheers,
Yogesh.

Yes, you are absolutely right. It was a headlamp stalk issue.

This is what I exactly thought. But the workshop guys ruled it out.

It was a simple headlamp stalk issue but the problem actually started from the time my tail lamp assembly was replaced. This actually led the investigation in a different direction altogether, I guess.

Finally after 4-5 visits to the workshop, the issue was identified and resolved.

I have a question for you guys. Did you ever pay advance amount to a Hyundai (or any other) dealership to procure a part, so that you don't go and fit the part in another dealership? I did. For the first time in my life. Will write a detailed report on that tonight.

No, I've offered them an advance amount in the past (even asked them if they wanted the entire payment), but they refuse. Possibly the dealer's accounting system wont allow this since no part has been issued.

But on another note, it pays to keep following with them (see a separate thread I wrote on needing a plastic gromet for the underside - which is a Rs.15 part making them quite uninterested in procuring the same). But consistent followup and buttering up the spare parts person (and a short email to Hyundai complaining about inaction) got me the part. I never got a reply from Hyundai, but seems like the Trident Hyundai manager was passed on the complaint from Hyundai.

BTW - going back on your headlight stalk issue, did they change the entire headlight stalk - how much was the part?

Due to the rain, some water may have seeped into the wiring harness connected to the light. The 12V positive from the battery ahs been shorted to ground which is making the lamp light. It ought to go after it dries up.

Get your wiring harness at the rear checked & sealed up. This should be done on a priority basis as it's VERY dangerous. If you have recently installed aftermarket items at the rear, start checking there first.

Do elaborate us about the diagnosis and the solution provided by the service centre.

Sure I will, let me Check Weather problem is resolved permanently and not cause any further problem.

Hyundai Service Center Engineer has checked entire car wiring one by one and first he checked Rear Tail lamp and checked water leak or not, found nothing. then he moved to under Bonnet, nothing found then he started checking Under Dash board and removed all wiring including fuse console and after an 4 hour complete checkup then he found tail lamp wire was melted and it became direct so finally problem resolved. it happen due to heat or loose connection wire get heat and melt.

Thanks
