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.

My traction control, brake, and check engine light are all on. I also had a plug wire burned in half. I checked all the fuses and all were good plus changed wires. The light are still on and the dinger is...

The plug wire & the ABS should not be related in any way. Unless when the plug wire burned in half the spark that could no longer get to the plug jumped to the ABS module & fried it. Anyway I would replace all plug wires. Then remove the Negative or ground battery cable for 5 min. to reset ABS module. Then reconnect the battery cable & give it a try. if the trac. or brake lights come back on you most likely have a bad ABS module & that's a very costly fix. Good Luck.

1993 hyundai sonata has check engine light on and is stuck in limp mode and wont shift out of second gear

the .pcm puts it in limp mode and it will stay in mode until light is turned off. You need to get the trouble code, repair it, erase the codes (with a scanner that retrieves the codes), and then you will be out of limp home mode.

I have a 2001 Hyudai sonata 4 cyl 2.4L engine with 126,000 miles on it. I tried to start it and nothing happened, I've just replaced the altenator and battery. I moved the gear shift in and out of Park...

true about what do you mean
however if the fault codes read as CKP then check the wiring and /or replace the sensor
sensors have nothing to do with starter motors
starter motors just crank the engine over and if that is not happening, check battery condition , terminals , starter relay, starter motor
But they will prevent the engine from starting and running

i bet its your "Check Engine Light" take it to a auto-parts store and ask them to check the engine codes...maybe it will tell you what all is wrong with it...most of those places do it for free hoping you will buy the parts you need from them.
