For past 2 weeks.... (Check engine light comes on and off).
I started it, warmed for 15 minutes. Shut it off, turned back on, no problem. took it to end of road, it stalled and wouldnt start for 30 minutes. Got it home and it wouldnt start again. Started again an hour later, ran for 5 minutes, shut off again. Sometimes it goes for days without any problem.
4cyl 1.5ltr 1999 hyundai accent
single mom with children in cold NH..sigh.
Re: 99 hyundai accent starts sometimes. not battery
Ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for free..my bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL

99% of the time when those 2 lights come on together then yes, the alternator is not charging. You should be able to jump off though. May have to let it charge off other vehicle for a few minutes. Also check cable connection. If it does start when you remove cable it will die. Computer will shut down vehicle when it has less than 12 volts. If need be you could put a fully charged battery in and drive for a short period with no headlights or accessories on.
well the first thing you need to do is to pull the stored codes in the computer and see what they say and then go from there, this could be a speed sensor or a trany going bad , i dont know if this is an automatic or standard trany, start with the codes from the check engine light, autozone car parts store will scan the computer at no charge,
sometimes loss of power can be caused by a clogged catalytic converter which can make the car at times hesitate, and about the trasmission maybe the governor on it might be faulty what that does it changes the gears when it reaches certain speed
Did youmtry disconnecting the battery for five minutes, then reconnect, start engine and let it idle for 5 minutes with everything off, including radio and heater. If this don,t work you may have a faulty position sensor. I hope this helps.
