My 2006 Hyundai Sonota Will Not Start!

When I turn the ignition, it sounds like it's going to start, but it doesn't.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Sonata.

What do you believe the problem is? Thank you much!

    My 2006 Hyundai Sonota 4 cyclinder car sometimes will not crank, it turns over fine but will not crank until I let it set. Sometime are worse than others and has to set for quite sometime.

    I have the same problem. Have had it twice now. Error codes indicate the throttle body is the problem. Have you guys taken yours by AutoZone or another auto parts company and let them pull the errors? Thanks!

    I've had the same problem twice. The error codes indicate a bad throttle body. Have you taken yours by an AutoZone, Advance or other auto parts store to get your error messages? I'm curious if you get the same ones. I'm picking my car up today and I'll let you know what mine were. Here's my e-mail:

    I have the same problem, but I cannot get it started at all to take it anywhere to have the codes read.

    I have the same problem, I have tried to check the fuel pump, but can't tell if it is working or not. Fuse looks OK and it appears I can only get a relay from the dealer 30 miles away. Problem is I can't even get it started now.

We had thhis issue with our 2006 Sonata, Had fuel pump replaced and happened again about a month later. Had fuel pump replaced again and hasn't happened again. I am not sure that it is solved, still has only been a month since last replacement. One thing to also look at: there is an access panel in the trunk behind the passenger seat, there are connections there after the first replacemnt I kept pushing these connections together and the car would start, but in the end it totally quit starting and had the fuel pump replaced. Hope this helps.

Could be the fuel pump
how ever my advice
the car should be under warranty
take it to Hyundai and have them fix it
there should be no cost to you

Most obvious thing to check out is the ignition switch. If it is not working properly and engaging the appropriate circuits it may be the cause of your issue. An intermittent contact is not out of the question.

My passenger front and back windows on my hyundai sonota 2006 are not working ,can it be the fuse and where can i find it?

You can find a fuse box diagram in the owner's manual that will tell you exactly which fuse is for what. This would be a good place to start as fuses are cheap and easy to replace.
