Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata
2001 Sonata Check engine light, won't change gears. detaching battery cable for 5 min. temporary fix
The check engine light is tripped on when a fault in the cars systems is detected. Based on the fact that it won't change gears it is probably related to the PCM(PowerTrain Control Module) or related sensor. Disconnecting the battery only clears the code temporarly and will come back on when the fault is re-detected. The best advice I can give you is to take it to a local dealer or parts store and have them scan the computer with a code reader to identify the faulty component. Once you know what is causing the fault replace the defective part and clear the code by resetting the battery.
Hope this helps.
