Car Batteries last 3-6 years possisble longer/Shorter - Depends on alot of things, 2005 Vehicle the battery is 4 years old. I would clean the battery termals and have a local shop load test the battery for you. If the battery is weak it is best to change the battery now than have you charging system working hard to charge a weak battery adding more cost to a repair later or a no start on a cold morning.

2005 santa fe serpentine broke then bad vibrating and it died replaced serpentine and tensionor, now motor locked. Is the motor shot or could something else be wrong?


Put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt, and see if you can turn the crankshaft-clockwise. If the crank won't turn, something internal is bad. If you can turn the crankshaft normally, check that another pulley has seized.
Or try it this way: take the serpentine belt back off and see if the starter can spin the crankshaft. If it does, look for a seized pulley. If a good battery cannot make the starter turn the crankshaft, likely the motor is shot.

Broken battery clamp on 2005 santa fe


New replacement ends, available at auto parts stores, are a simple bolt-on repair. They are not noted for quality repair, but they do work if properly installed. The best fix is to replace the entire cable. Hope this helps!

Change the battery and the radio does not work? 2005 santa fe


You have an internal security code in the radio. You need to put that code in. If you don't have it, contact your dealer.

Turning the key to start up


I had the same problem. Even If I left the cab light on while gassing up(with the car shut off), my battery would die.


Two things.Purchase voltage meter ($20 - $25) to test your battery output. It should read from 12 to 12.8 volts. Anything close to 10 amps or less, you should replace your battery. You can also run this check with an amp meter with cab probably be even cheaper. Another option is a battery charger with a built in amp meter. Just disconnect the cables and connect the battery charger. When you plug the charger into the wall it will should you a proper amp reading. Again, if it shows too low a reading you need a new battery. This comes from experience as I have a 2005 Santa Fe with the same problem.

The second thing is to take your vehicle to have the alternator checked. With older vehicles we used to start the car and disconnect the negative battery cable.( If you do this, DO NOT let the cable touch anything.Just hold it in your hand.) If the cars shuts off, the alternator isn't charging the battery properly.

*** NOTE*** I'm not sure if this is recommended for newer vehicles but it was an easy fix for older vehicles, a time and money saver for sure.

Good Luck.
