Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent
My car picks and chooses when it wants to start. It started in June 2008. The garage changed the ignition wiring. Within a couple weeks, it started again. I will not start in the morning especially. I thought maybe the starter...they changed the starter. I'm still having the problems. The check Engine light came and it was a sensor and crack in the exhaust. But that had nothing to do with my problem. Every time i bring it to the garage, it will start with no problems. I can fiddle around with the cluth, and it will start for me. Any Suggestions?
If it is the same problem I had with my car it is very simple to fix.
Your car may not recognise your key, just jiggle the key around a bit!
Hyundai has the added security with keys in the form of a chip that "speaks" to your ignition telling it that it is "the" key for "that" individual car. When the ignition does recognise the key a light symbol on the dashboard will turn on (or off, I forgot which way it is) and the car will start. If it does not recognise the key, your car will not start no matter what you do.
This happend to me for a few years and I wasted loads of money trying to fix it, mechanics probably thought I was crazy as my car would always start for them.
If this does fix your problem you can choose to buy a new key or just keep jiggling the key if it wont start. I just jiggle it lol.
Don't forget to put the clutch in too!
Hope that helps you :)

Sounds like the clutch safety switch
