My 2004 Accent wont start. It started fine Tuesday, Wednesday morning it would not start for nothing. I tried it Thursday afternoon and it started fine. This is the second time it has done this.

Does the motor crank (starter engaged and turning the motor)? If it does not crank, do you hear the solenoid clicking (engaging the starter gear into the flywheel teeth)?

My 1997 hyundai accent will not start. i can only hear a clicking sound. what should i look at. It has a new battery.

A clicking sound with no cranking, while trying to start your engine, is usually a sign of a bad starter. Have it checked out.

How do I remove and fix a starter on a hyundai 1997 accent

maybe you should weigh your options cause probably cheaper to replace that rebuild disconect bat before you remove starter take all wires loose remembering where they go dont mix up and remove 2 or 3 bolts that hold the starter in place then remove and replace in reverse order

My '98 S10 ignition switch will click, then work.

first check all cables for corrosion on the battery. then go under the truck and check all cables that are on the starter. if they are clean then replace the starter because the solenoid is going bad.

Intermittent starting problem with my 1998 Hyundai Accent 1.3i

first off, when it wont start check the voltage from the battery cable where it connects to the starter, if you have 12.5 volts there that will take battery cable corrosion out of the equation, then check to see if you have ground at the starter, which it sounds like you do not. it sounds like your ignition switch but hard to say from discription, make sure your battery cables are all tight, if you have all of this and its good i would say its the ignition switch which you can look up how to test in a chiltons or haynes manual from the auto parts store, if all of that stuff is good you can take the starter off and have it tested for free at autozone or any autoparts store, but usually the starter goes out really quick or just quits all together, if your not hearing a click noise when you turn it then your solinoid isnt engaging and means you dont have ground to it due to a short or bad ignition switch, that about covers the whole starting system, fuse isnt bad since it works sometimes. good luck hope that this helps you send me a message if you need more indepth help =)
