MY 2004 SANTA FE WILL NOT START IF GAS LEVEL IS A QUARTER TANK OR LOWER AND ALSO WHEN I FILL UP WITH GAS. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON! SO NO ONE CAN TELL ME WHAT MIGHT BE WRONG. ONCE IT SITS...


The Check Engine Light does not have to come on for someone to find out what is wrong. A shop may have to have the car for a few days so they can run some tests on your fuel and ignition systems. They will most likely have to drive the car/run the engine to duplicate the symptom so they can catch it while it is malfunctioning. Intermittent problems can be very elusive, but they can be diagnosed with a little patience. The level of your fuel gauge most likely has nothing to do with your starting problem.

2001 hyundai santa fe, was running fine, went to crank it, all lights and chimes work, but it will not start. Not the battery, not the starter, thought possibly it was a transponder key, but was informed...


dear friend:this might sound stupid,but remove the key from the barrel and try again,then see if the dash lights dim when trying to start,if it does the battery is to flat to turn the engine,if it is a auto shift the lever slightly forward and backward to make sure it is not the neutral switch.

No engine cranks will not start


I had this same problem on my 2004 Santa Fe with the 3.4L engine. I had it towed to the dealer. WhenI called them back they said there was nothing wrong with it. (they didn't charge me either) What they said was that this problem occurs if your car does not start right away and you continue to try to start it. The solution is to push the accelerator to the floor and then turn the key to start it. I know, we've all been taught that you don't need to "pump" the accelerator with a car that has fuel injection. I had the same problem a few weeks ago, did what I described above, and the car started fine.
