SOURCE: Broken Hyundai 2002 Accent door handles

i have a 2005 hyundai both back doors would not open from the outside . after taking the panel off i found out that the handle is completely plastic and that it had broke in half because off stress . i removed the handle ( which was a pain ) and used quick drying epoxy on the crack . then i put a thin piece if aluminum on each side of the crack and used the same epoxy to hold it on . the next day i put the handles back on ( after letting the epoxy dry ) and it has worked perfect ever since. my next recourse , if it breaks again , is go to ebay . there is a seller if you type in hyundai door handles that sells 2 after market ones for $39.99. they fit 2001 to 2005 . i hope that this helps .

You need to turn the wheel slightly either left or right until the key turns. That is very common. I know you said the wheels is locked but it will turn slightly one way or the other.

2001 hundai accent cannot unlock car doors with key. It worked on doors lastmonth. Have used lock deicer, wd-40 to no avail. Key works in ignition & trunk.


dose the key turn in the lock you could have a worn door lock where the plastic link bar on the back of the barrel gets a bit worn and just dosnt pull the link bar up enough , you realy need to remove the door pannel and really look at whats happening to the lock from inside the door checking the movement when you turn the key to unlock position you may even take up any play on the link bar to the latch lock by putting a slight bend in the bar to take up the slack

2007 Hyundai Sonata ignition locks up intermittently


Ok this just happened on my 2008 Hyundia Accent. Here is the issue. DO NOT REPLACE YOUR IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER OR ANY PART. All it is is over time the oil in the locking mechanism dries and is used by dirt introduced by the key. The tumbler is no longer pins but strips of metal sitting against one another. When you insert the key the strip goes up and gets stuck and does not come back down. Thus not allowing the steering wheel to lock or the ignition to turn.

How to fix. Its easy and cheap a small hammer and a can of WD-40. I stress this next part DO NOT BASH THE ... OUT OF THE KEY THEN YOU WILL BREAK YOUR TUMBLER AND NEED TO REPLACE. Spray some WD-40 into the lock. Insert the key tap it gently with a hammer and try the key eventually the vibration will drop the piece and the car will turnover. Do repeatedly until you can start the car without a hammer. Than put WD-40 in your ignition tumbler every time you change your oil should never have this problem again. I was in the Navy where I was in charge of 20 plus High Security locks exposed to weather and dirt. A regular maintenance procedure we performed was to disassemble the locks and clean and oil them or they would gum up and lock and then we would have to spend hours breaking off a high security lock(not the easiest thing as you can imagine). I learned quickly it was easier to do preventive maintenance then to fix and replace. If your ignition is gummed up and won\'t turn it may take a hour or so to get it working properly again but it will work and it won\'t cost you 250+ in cash. Hope this helps.
