Radio
G'day everyone,

My daily driver, a 2013 Hyundai i30 1.8 L petrol, has been very reliable, well... almost. The only thing that has been giving me issues is the radio tuner.

It's the 5" touch screen unit. When I bought the car brand new in November last year, the FM and AM tuner was extremely sensitive, and received all the stations on the FM band, and even out performed the radio that is in my Nissan Tiida!

But over the past few months, the tuner has been a bit picky. Some days it will receive the stations clearly, and some other days it will not, this doesn't have much to do with weather conditions. A family member of mine also got a 2013 i30 around the same time as I did, and I have done some comparisons wi...

ESP Off
Hi guys.
I know this problem has been discussed long ago, but I wanted to ask you one thing.The main two sources for this problem, according to previous articles I have read on this forum, could be :
1. low tire pressure
2. break switch problem
My question is : due to the fact I have my TPMS sensors removed, and the pressure can't be "read", can this take me directly to the second case (the break switch problem)?
The ESP OFF lights, turn on randomly. Sometimes when I turn the engine on, without even moving the car 1cm. I have to turn the engine off and turn on again.Most of the cases, the ESP OFF light won't be turned on again.Other times I can go to work and back (~ 11 Km) and it's all fine, the ESP OFF lights won'...

Washer fluid warning light came on and so I filled the reservoir (it was low) but the warning display will not switch off. Any ideas or fix? Thanks.

Glow Plug

I on occasion drive the work holden rodeo diesel and I can just turn key and start straight

Testimonials
Hi guys

So I thought since my new-to-me i30 has clocked just past 10K km, I would give a little write-up on my findings, what I like and what I don't, and what I have learnt.

I purchased my i30 through Hypercar on the 6th of June after much uhm-ing and aah-ing and frivolously researching cars on the net, asking people for opinions and generally walking away with more questions than answers.

My ideal car that I had in my head was either a Mitsubishi Lancer GLS 2.0l, as they have crappy resale value in SA and they are rock solid cars so they can be found for very little outlay. However, the 2l MIVEC engine is quite thirsty and it lacked some of the mod cons of other vehicles. My other option was an older car,...

TPMS
Hi All , having been quoted 240 from a Hyundai dealer to supply, fit and re-program a new TPMS sensor to my 2008 i30 I resorted to trawling the web and found RL Automotive they were quoting 51.45 delivered for a self programming sensor, I called them and they told me once fitted just drive for 15 minutes and it will self program to the ECU. I was a bit sceptical but ordered one, a local tyre shop fitted it and just charged 6 for the balancing. Drove home and within 5 minutes the dash warning light and display picture had gone ,magic !

Radio
Hello, this is my first post in here.

I've been reading a bit in here yesterday, but I couldn't find quite the same problem as I have. Even though I've found some problems I had too (headlights busting frequently, passenger side read door handle broke without any hard force put to it), I couldn't find anything about radio.

So, a couple of days ago I was driving during nighttime, and I hit a pothole at 90km/h. After 2-3 seconds sound stopped coming through the speakers. The radio works fine, CD, USB, FM/AM, no errors, it's just that there is no sound at all, no matter the volume. I'm not sure what could be the problem, and I'm kinda not sure what to look for exactly. Is it the connection between the speakrs and the radi...

Exhaust
Hello people!

car: 2010 hyundai i30 turbo diesel

issue: upon cold start up the exhaust blows out some smoke (white/light grey) - the amount of smoke is varied depending on how long the car has been not used. generally the longer the rest period -> the greater amount of smoke upon start up. it's not a 'huge' amount of smoke, but enough to warrant investigation.

possibilities: i've done some reading. apparently it may be due to a build up of unburned fuel. something about glow plugs not burning off the fuel fast enough?

other notes: 1. i've had the car inspected by a mechanic - no leaks, broken seals etc.
2. the car drives fine, clutch is perfect, turbo works great - verified by mechanic.
