2002 Santa FE Radio

Discussion in 'Hyundai Santa Fe' started by R.G. Saunders, Nov 15, 2003.

  1. My 02 Santa FE radio (Hyundai unit with CD) has suddenly dediced to have
    intermittent zero reception on FM all across the band while AM now has
    motorboating across the spectrum unless it is tuned to a very strong local
    station. Has anyone else here encountered these problems. TIA

    Sounds like you've lost contact with your antenna!

    Good luck,

    My radio was doing something kind of like that... But a week later the
    battery went out. I replaced the battery, and the radio has been fine ever
    since... Could it be the car battery?

  4. My 2002 Sante Fe battery died too. Hmmm.

  5. Actually, the problem seems to be a defective capacitor/s. If the heat is on
    high for a while the system will work. This combined with the motorboating
    etc on the AM is indicative of a capacitive fault in the system. The dealer
    didn't hesitate, just checked the symptoms and ordered me a new one.
