Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

2000 Hyundai starts and then stops immediately.

My 2000 Hyundai Elantra starts, idles for a few seconds but then dies right away.

Before this it was idling rough with very little power when I stepped on the gas. I sprayed some carburetor cleaner into the air intake while the car was running rough thinking this might clean air intake a little - the car stopped running immediately. Could I have shorted out the Mass Air Flow Sensor or made it fail?

To help solve the problem, I’m looking for the Fuel Pump Relay to check it, but I cannot find it.
It is not listed on the relay box under the hood, it is not in the fuse box in the passenger compartment. I found the Multiport Fuel Injection Relay behind the dash but where is the Fuel Pump Relay?

I have replaced the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator and throttle position sensor.

When I turn the key to “on” the fuel pump does not “whirr” but I do hear it running after the car starts. Then everything stops.

You may need to check the belts on your car's power steering section. Make sure the belts are tight and not worn out. Check for cracks on the belt and if loose, tighten it. There is also a product called Automotive belt dressing that you can spray on the belt to make it stick more easily to the pulley it is supposed to turn.

My 2000 Hyundai Elantra, 2.0 liter automatic, has been dying at stops when it is in gear. could it be Idle actuator? or what else could it be?

IT could be the forward band or reverse band or pump in the g/box are holding on instead of breaking drive at 600 rpm,as its like putting in the clutch on a manual box it frees off the drive.
But you could check the Actuator but i would say check the bands by when stopping slip into N if idles ok then its the box Sorry
Let me know how you get on Ron
