This is my patented 'wimp helper'. Selling world wide for A$60 plus freight. CASH!!

Looks more like a tool of torture   :eek:   :lol:

@mickd   :D Yes it has many entertaining uses around the home, especially during school holidays.  :evil:
I still have my small tool box (we called them the abortion box) from past days on the road and in the air. It has an array of strangely bent and thinly ground down spanners etc that I made for awkward jobs.

Did someone say School Holidays!  :sweating: With 16 and a half step-grandkids I'm really looking forward to the  next two weeks..  :crazy1:

I think I'll get my hat and coat..  :Prayer:

Don't worry, I have have lots of things planned and none of them are within 5kms of home!  :crazy1:

I did take the 10 year old daughter of my Step daughter with me to the supermarket for a ride last night. She is probably my favourite.  :goodjob:

I think because I have two daughters I relate to girls better. They don't break stuff and she doesn't ask for stuff all the time like her Brothers do..

SOLVED

Finally got the switch, even  through Hyundai there were 3 switch types for this reg, and had to send pics for me to ID the right one that matched the one I had. Anyway picked up this morning, fitted ( and boy was that fiddly, frustrating, finger tip threading, feet pushing on the roof, had to put string around pedal to hold down  ) but its in and straight away EVERYTHING below is back and working.

The part was labelled ignition switch, although nothing to do with that, just tells ECU the clutch pedal is up and that fits into the all the s/w algorithms that drive the below.

So all in all, 35 and a massive big up to nzenigma  :goodjob2: :goodjob:. I am not convinced that paying Hyundai to scan the codes ( 96 ) in the submodules would have helped, it would be the real time sensor info they'd need to plot AND be clued up enough to know to look at the pedal up switch state as it would not be registering a fault, just a confusing reading to the ECU. So this could have ballooned into 00's 's through mis-diag

So for the record, if you see the below happending ( and ONLY the below ) you need a new clutch switch - the lower one that tells when the clutch is up

Car starts fine - everytime - every ~20 days it does feel a bit lumpy on tickover for a short while, been like this for a ~ year
No lights on at start or driving ( < 50 mph )
ISG stopped working
CC not working - switches on and dash light, but can never set a speed
Clutch down when moving - RPM will drop RAPIDLY ( one of the issues and so bad driving experience on gearchange ) and goto 1K if left, no less. This happens even with no ESC light on ie from start
50 mph ESC light comes on ( whatever gear )
The gear change notification on the computer not working for best mpg

Thanks everyone else on this forum to, the suggestions here were many but the inside knowledge of the system is what drove the solution - and that is down to pure good human nature and helpful people

BTW thats the offender - that black circle is the top of a plunger that should be poking out and spring loaded

SOLVED...

@charlie8 . Hi Charlie, when you described the state of the switch (broken plunger) I knew we had it licked.  :happydance:
A huge relief given the time we all have put in to this form of 'distance learning'; while we also applied some lateral thinking to solve a new problem.

I agree, you treated the quote to scan codes with suitable scepticism and saved yourself 96 plus .  I often wish others had that skill.

Charlie my personal thanks for your own "good human nature" in returning to tell us that the problem is solved.
Now go enjoy that i30  :) :goodjob2: Gary

Hi to all I would like to say that I have had problem with clutch switch symptoms the same but do not have CC and stop start engine so I bought a new one with 57 pounds for it I write curious what have happend with old one so decided to take old one in pieces it was easy and it occurred that spring was broken do before you make a call to dealer try to fix it on your own you need 35mm long and 3mm diameter spring if that was not a spring then you need a call to dealer

Just wanted to add to this thread that I've had EXACTLY the same car faults as Charlie8, in my 2012 1.6 CRDi. Courtesy of the expert information, I've replaced the top clutch switch, and all the faults have gone. My switch had a different failure mode though, the plunger was still working, but the internal switch had failed, it wasn't breaking continuity. A multimeter was the only way to find this problem. Thanks nzenigma for including all the necessary info earlier in the thread.
