Question about Hyundai Motor 2003 Elantra

1 Answer

2003 Hyundai Elantra won't start !!!

When I place the key into the ignition all the dashboard lights turn on and the sounds chime as well; as I try to turn the car on I get nothing, no sound at all! The dashboard lights are still on. My car is a manual transmission so I have to press down on the clutch pedal to start it. I had the car 'jumped' and it still didn't turn on. The only way I can get it started is by 'push start'. I 'pop' the clutch in 2nd gear. When I'm driving, the car is fine. It doesn't die out on me. I figure it's the starter that is bad. Is it the 'starter' or the 'starter solenoid'? Any thoughts anyone?

Could be a problem with the clutch pedal switch. I'd have a look under the dash first to make sure no wires have been knocked of the pedal switch. If there's no sound, not even a clunking sound it may be the solenoid. I'd first want to eliminate the pedal wiring. Remove the small wire on the starter (most likely a spade type terminal) and using a piece of insulaated wire attach it to the starter where you removed the spade. Flick the other end of the wire on the positive of the battery. If the starter operates your looking at the pedal switch/ relay fault. If not its the starter. MAKE SURE CAR IS IN NEUTRAL BEFORE TRYING THIS. Ignition switched off. That way it will crank but not start.

Check under the carpeting on the driver's floor. There should be a compartment that houses the PCM.

SOURCE: 2004 hyundai santa fe parked it

The 04 Santa Fe came with three different engines. 4 cylinder (2.4 lit), and two different V6's (2.7 lit & 3.5 lit). The 2.4 & 2.7 use throttle cables connected directly to the throttle plate, but the 3.5 uses ETS (Electronic Throttle System) which uses two sensors (APS & TPS) and a control module (ETSCM). APS=Accelerator Position Sensor, TPS=Throttle Position Sensor, ETSCM= Electronic Throttle System Control Module. There are different diagnostic procedures for each system.

I can't start my 1995 hyundai elantra after forgetting to turn off the lights when going for class. I try to jump start it but the car won't start and all the lights keep on flashing and flick


After connecting battery, try using key in drivers door to lock, and /or unlock. Try passenger if that doesn't work, as well as valet key if it came with one.

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the


There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.

I bought a used 2007 Hyundai Elantra recently (my first ever car) from a private owner. When I key-in I see the battery & fluid lights on on the dashboard. Is that normal?


Most cars when you turn the ignition key on(not all the way to start) lights come on to tell you the bulbs are working and not burnt out.After you start the engine the warning lights go out or if the don't there is a problem with that device.Good Luck.

2003 elantra GLS does not start, New battery


If the car is turning over but won't stay running, it is not the ignition switch. You also said it is "trembling very badly" when it is turning over, this leads me to believe that it might just be moisture under the distributor cap or a bit of carbon build up on the rotor.
Try this: remove the distributor cap WITHOUT REMOVING ANY OF THE WIRES. There are 2 screws that hold it in place, loosen them and turn the cap over to look inside - if you see any moisture, wipe it out with a dry rag. Next inspect the rotor, that's the piece still on the engine under the cap, on the end of it is a metal contact. If it is at all blackened (carbon build up) either LIGHTLY scrape it with a flat blade screwdriver or LIGHTLY sand it until shiny with fine grit sandpaper. Put the cap back on, retighten the screws to secure it, and see if that gets it to start.

Amazing!.. Belts don't 'ignite!' Never have and never will. Find yourself a good mechanic/technician and get them to look at it.
