Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

6 Answers

Shifter not operating properly

I have a 2003 hyundai sante fe with a 2.4 litre automatic.I put the carin park while still rolling slowly forward and heard a series of clickscoming from the transaxle.Afterwards the shifter was very hard to pulland difficult to get into gear and sometimes showing the wrong gear onthe dash display.I removed the transmission pan and exposed the partwith the notches and believe that to be where the clicks came from.Howcan I adjust everything back where it is supposed to be?

    I tried the Hyundai website in the past and it's never let me set up as a user. Anybody out there familiar with my situation?

    The parts do not look worn, I think it is out of sink.

Have u checked the range selector switch on the transmission? that is where the dash indicator gets it's signal on what gear has been selected, it also signals the transmission control module what gear you have selected/engaged and then it operates the appropiate trans solenoids to give you that selected range, which is why the switch is called the range switch.

You may have damage your parking brake mechanism inside the housing of your transmission by reason of shifting it into park while the car is in motion. its a protruding tapered metal, usually located below the inner wall of the housing. some parts of this mechanism may have been clogged between your notches or in anypart of your system, thats why your having a hard time getting shifters into gear.

My father had the same problem with his car, he had to remove the panel beneath the shift and pull a lever just to get it into gear, we looked at the button on the gear shift and that was fine, we also used lubrication spray to loosen any stiff parts and nothing worked. When he took it into the garage we found that the gear shift selector cog/mechanism had worn which explained the clicking noises we heard, he had to have replaced at the garage.

hope this info helps

Thanks for using Fixya

Hyundai Sante Fe 2003 with automatic transmission and 3.6L engine shutters and shakes when slowly accelerating to about 60 kmph. If you take your foot off the gas or accelerate the shaking stops...


Tune up spark plugs, wires, check fuel filter, etc... Check distributor, change transmission fluid and coolant. If you need a new distributor I would try looking for a used one online.
