On the odometer it reads done and will not start!


Looks like this might be the computer failing the initial self test. Check your battery voltage and if it is good have your starter checked.

2001 OLD SILHOUTTE SHIFTING ISSUE


Filter or valve problem in the transmission. Transmissions also need regular fluid changes and filter changes and most people do not know this. You can do this yourself, or have someone do it.

Hyundai accent 2001 will not start all lights work radio works heater fan works battery in 3 months old when I turn the key all i hear is a humming sound for about 1 min. than nothing. weather has be


The humming would be the fuel pump coming on. It should only hum for a few seconds, then shut off.
Your problem is with the start circuit from the battery to the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Check the connections at the starter (the big cable) for tightness.
Is the battery charged up enough to turn the engine over? Check by turning headlights on and observe while someone turns key to crank. If they dim a LOT, then either battery is too low, or the starter is bad and needs removing for testing. If brightness doesn't change, then the circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is likely not working. Check for 12 volts at the small wire to starter solenoid with key in cranking position. If you have power there, the solenoid may be bad. Remove starter for testing. If no power at solenoid in starting position, then either the ignition switch is bad or the neutral safety switch might be the problem, or the wiring from the switch to the starter solenoid is not passing current.
Good luck.

Sounds like you have a starter issue.

If the engine will not crank but you have power everywhere else I would start by testing the starter. You can remove the starter and take it to an autoparts store for inspection.

Car doesnt start


Did you check to see if your old starter was any good, you may have a bad spot on your fly wheel and it is getting caught up on the bad spot and it want start try turning your fly wheel of the bad spot and then try to start it.

Turn on key. power to gauges and lights. will not crank starter. removed starter and load tested . checks out ok. reinstalled starter worked for a week same thing. removed starter same thing . reinstalled...


After I was able to diagnose that the new starter I first received was defective, I reinstalled the old starter that the store checked and claimed was good. It finally acted up while I had the car on the ramps. The old starter was starting as desired when finally on one key turn, it failed to turn over. After checking I had the power to the solenoid, I gave it a tap on the solenoid and the starter began to crank again. In shopping for replacement starters, I've found out that performance data in the box doesn't mean the starter will be functional. Many that I looked at were missing the water drain debris plugs. Some were even broken in the box, and one store tried to pass it off saying it was remanents from another starter since that company reused boxes. And in-store checks for starters are only as good as the people running it. I took the same starter in twice, and got two different results (good and horribly bad).

Car won't start


With a 12 volt test light and an assistant, check for a signal to (S) terminal on starter solenoid.If ok, check all connections at starter for clean and tight.If still no crank, replace starter. If no signal to (S) terminal, suspect ignition or neutral saftey switch.
