Question about Hyundai Motor 2003 Elantra
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.

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.
