When the starter relay is activated by the key the power passes through to the starter. If it has less than 12. When you say AutoZone checked the ignition, what did they check? The manufacturer was not contacted. I am a second owner, and have 75k miles on my vehicle; therefore I do not have a warranty on the part. What happened is that while driving the engine suddenly stopped and the check engine light turned on.
If the car has a distributor, pull the 1 plug and bump the engine over until the piston is as high as it will go. I restarted it 6 or 7 times with it stalling each time. Check the battery---it should have 12. While looking under hood, the engine backfired 3 times, almost in succession, while idling. I've never had this problem with the car before and of course it is sitting in our garage. If you get voltage, try tapping on the starter lightly with a hammer. Since it does start now and then, you should check the voltage at the starter when the key is turned to start.
I am going to check the injector pulses from the pcm tomorrow I've been having similar problems, although mine have not been resolved yet. I have a Hyundai Sonata 2002 automatic which has just broken down. Car wont start problems cycloids not firing and fuel injector too!. Usually this is the type of problem that starts out small and eventually gets to the point where you are at right now. I dig down in my engine and guess what I found laying down there. Then I turned it off for about 10 seconds and restarted. I will have to wait until Monday to speak to them.
It sounds like a fuel delivery problem. I'm clearly not a mechanic. With my age and being widowed I really would like to feel confident that this car is going to be safe for me. Have the helper step on the brake and hold the ignition key in the start position and move the gear shift slowly into drive and just wiggle it back and forth. While waiting for tow maybe 10 minutes it started and I nusred it ioff the highway where it stalled again on off ramp. Or a leaky exhaust pipe.
Pull the electrical connector and check for power at one terminal just when the helper holds the ignition in the start position. Get your hands on a fuel pressure gauge Edit: sorry, just re-read your first post and see you did some stuff with the fuel system. Sometimes I would have to try several times before it would start. Or, did you find a very reliable Sonata expert somewhere? Update some more info I heard from another mechanic: There is no spark and no injector pulse. I saw smoke and could smell burning plastic. Told me I was over 70k.
So this issue has been happening around once or twice a week now and its starting to drive me crazy! A dead fuel pump probably won't explain your problem it should still crank without a pump , but it's good to know. Instead of just guessing have the Hyundai Santa Fe checked for engine error codes to possibly pin point the issue. The alarm problem is because of the little rubber stopper that pushes the switch down that tells the alarm that the hood is closed horn didnt honk when you hit the lock button on the keyless entry. Get into the car on the drivers side, put the key in as if to turn it on, making sure the radio comes on to ensure its not the battery. The vehicle was not under warranty according to Hyundai. When I tried to restart my car the vehicle would not start. What happened is that while driving the engine suddenly stopped and the check engine light turned on.
If there was no power at the second terminal at the relay, check the neutral safety switch on the transmission. So I'm running out of options if any one knows I could use the help it only has 143,000 miles on it. Have you noticed recently that the engine seems to have less power at high rpms? All of the lights came on at once and it scared me to death because my kids were in the car with me. You can check the ignition easily by holding one of the plug wires, after removing it from the spark plug, a short distance - a quarter of an inch - from the engine block. Pull a spark plug boot and stick a Phillips screwdriver with a good plastic or rubber handle into the boot than hold the blade near something metal on the car and crank it. The mechanic screwed it up! The car is currently sitting in my company parking lot and wont start at all, hopefully I can get it to the shop without having to tow it! I turned the car off outside of the store.
The second terminal will have voltage only when the key is in the start position. Your vehicle needs to be scanned and checked out electronically before doing anything else. Its been about three weeks since I started it. I go to start my car, turn the key, and nothing. Declined for accurate to do further testing on the hesitation as the car was still under warranty so I will take it back to hub. There are 2 cam sensors onthe V6 3.
The manufacturer was notified of the failure. Have the helper step on the brake and hold the ignition key in the start position and move the gear shift slowly into drive and just wiggle it back and forth. This valve is mounted near the intake manifold and has a vacuum line to the manifold and another that routes under the car to the vapor canister. When the ignition switch activates the relay, the power will pass through the relay to the starter and operate the starter. Have the helper start the car.
