2003 Hyundai Elantra won't start !!!

Hey, thanks so much for your help. Your response sounds like it might be the problem, either the clutch switch or a bad solenoid. I had to push start it again and drove it to my mechanic. Listen to this.... When I got it to the mechanic, I turned the car off and tried starting it again. IT STARTED WITH NO PROBLEM, TWICE!!!! Don't you hate it, when the car acts up, and when you take it to the mechanic it works fine.... :( Well the mechanic is taking a look it so we'll see what the story is later. Thanks again.

Hey , you know troubled "Strarters" are funny things, "like a broken clock, they are right twice a day !!" There's a little starter drive inside that thing as complicated as he..(you know !!) One thing that I have had the "It doesn't start, it does start bit" from this winter was my battery. I got so ticked that I went & bought a used one from Kijiji for $50. You know what? "It's still in my TRUNK !!!" A lot of places will check your battery for free. Check your battery, it's connections, any acid at the terminals? One tes I have used, for free is "Can you boost another guy's car with your battery, and the car not running?" No Luck, then see about when it's running. When you get into your car, are the "Door ajar" etc. lights bright, or kind of dim compared to when " The Beast" is running? Som e simple tips, maybe not applicable, but come for my favourite price, "FREE".
When I'm at a cash & I'm asked "How'd you like to pay sir?" I like to answer "Reluctantly !!"
Good Luck !
Geoff

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.
Cheers John

SOURCE: 2000 hyundai elantra car cranks but wont turn over

Did you scan for any trouble codes? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps fix the problem.

SOURCE: Just bought a used 2001

You can go to Autozone and they will scan it for free and tell you why its on. If you dont notice anything and it drives normally, then it's probally an Oxygen sensor. It won't hurt anything if you keep driving it will just use a tiny bit more gas than normal. I would have it scanned anyways. You can also open the gas cap and let the pressure off the tank if there is any pressure in it. Sometimes that causes the check engine light to come on. If you bought the car from a car lot and the check engine light wasn't on the disclosure, they should have to fix it or you can file a complaint against them with their field investigator at the DMV. A good scanner can tell how many times the check engine light came on and when the code was cleared. If it was cleared right before you bought the car it usualy means the car lot tried to get away with not fixing the problem. Good luck and I hope it's nothing too serious.

It's probably a loose wire or adjusting nut on the clutch switch. Check and adjust it. Look under the dash on top of the clutch pedal arm there's a simple push button switch like the brake light switch. Even if you need a new switch it's only $10.
