Question about 2000 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Check engine light on

We just took our Elantra to get a complete inspection in the middle of September. During that time, they completely maintenanced the car (or so they said) and said everything was good to go. About 1 week after the appointment the check engine light came on so we took it back to the shop. At first they said that it wasn't a big deal but when the light stayed on after about another week they decided that one of the sensors needed replaced so they went ahead and did that and the light went off. After about 2 days the check engine light was back on. At that time they told us that this wouldn't cause any damage and the sensor just needed reset; however it might affect the gas guage. My question is- if it was a sensor that they replaced, wouldn't they have had to reset the sensor after replacing it anyway. Basically are we just getting screwed (FYI....no one there seems to have much of a clue) and what really could be the problem with the car? Thanks for any help!

I would take it to another Audi dealer or call Audi customer relations at 1-800-822-2834 and see if they can resolve it.

I have a 2003 Toyota Camry XLE. The battery died with the check engine light on. We took it in to get the smog certification (California) and the tech said that the computer was not reset. He advised us to...


The vehicle owner does not do drive
cycles,a repair shop should do that

Do you even know what the drive cycle
requirement was?

Have you not considered a repair shop
& some testing, to find out about the dead
battery & check engine light issue?

You don't go to inspection when you know
you have problems, nor until you look at scan
tool data, to see that all the monitors have run
& are clear,just waste your time at inspection

check for a bad connection like a bad ground at the battery, make sure both terminals are tight at the battery, the starter and the ground at the engine. the shop that installed the EGR should have erased the codes, after 50 to 100 miles you would be able to go through emissions.

I need to turn the Check engine light off, due to passenger/front catalytic converter 2005 nissan xterra


You still fail your state inspection if you turn off the check engine light. So Im sorry to say, that your gonna have to wait untill your new cat gets installed. After its installed you have a few options for turning off the check engine light.
-You can disconnect your battery for a little bit.
-You can take it to pretty much any mainstream auto parts store and they will clear it for free.
Either way you have to complete what is called "a drive cycle" to be able to pass your vehicle inspection.

DRIVE CYCLE
Once problem is fix you complete a drive cycle. Every vehicle is different so this is a general guide.
-There are a certain number of times your vehicle has to be started.
-There is a certain amount of time you have to be driving at different speeds
-There are sometimes a certain millage that has to be reached (ie. drive 75 miles)
If you just drive as you normally do for 100miles (not in one trip) your sure to have reset all the sensers that the state inspection equipment check.

SO IN SHORT
Get the new catyletic convertor installed
Get you 'check engine light' cleared for free at an auto parts store
Drive your car normally for about 100 miles
Get your vehicle state inspection

My 2003 hyundai elantra's check engine light is on.


most of the time a engine light will set with an Evap leak code if the gass cap is not tight or left off. tighten cap, or replace cap if gasket is cracked or worn.

My 2004 makes a load clicking sound when i come to a stop and on the open road it pulls hard right. it has new brakes and has been inspected by multiple garages and it comes back fine. my question is cold...


Hi,
now a worn or damaged outboard CV joint would make a clicking noise while turning. when the vehicle pulls to one side during braking it could be a number of problems.
1. incorrect tire pressure
2. front end out of line
3. restricted brake lines or hoses
4. drum brake or caliper assembly are malfunctioning
5.loose suspension parts
6. loose calipers
7. excessive wear of brake shoe or pad material or disc/drum on one side

i myself own a 2006 hyundai and just did a complete all 4 wheel brake job including rotors.......saved a bundle, special tool for the back brakes for calipers...........also just bought a 2012 elantra.............love it.
good luck,
frank

Very hard to turn. no squealing


Two things. Your power steering pump is completely dry. Or the rack is bad. In the rack there is a seal in the middle that can blow, letting the fluid bypass, thus hard steering.

My 2000 Saturn did not pass inspection due to evap. and O2 sensors "Not Ready". How can I fix the problem or how can the problem be fixed?


What is the EVAP code?

The O2 are not ready because it takes some time for them to complete there self check after clearing trouble codes. This will involve a few drive cycles. Once the evap problem has been resoled, the check engine light cleared, you'll have to drive it for a couple of days to get everything in the "ready" status.
