05 hyundai accent p1709 and p0442

The 1709 code is for the transmission nuetral safety switch. IT is broken or loose. The other codes is a SMALL evap system leak. This could be a lot of things and is usually no big deal but it can be terrible to track down. Neither of those would cause the fuel light to come on.

How to fix error code P1709

The transmission has a kickdown switch and it is either unhooked or broken. This switch is used when you are driving in mountains or need to pass and the car has lost speed. It drops the transmission one gear range in order to compensate

ObdII code p1709 "undefined error - check owners manual"

I show that this code is for the ECT sensor. Check the connector to it on the engine near the thermostat housing, if it is ok replace the sensor. There is a lot of confusion on the codes definition so hop I got this right, if not I apologize in advance.

No tenago dinero y mi carro hyundai 2004 me esta dando problemas no coje la riversa y cambia de cantaso y le pusieren la maquina y me *** estos codigos p2o96,p0734,p0733,p1709,p2096

P0733 - Gear 3 Incorrect ratio
P0734 - Gear 4 Incorrect ratio
P1709 - Park or Neutral Position Switch out of Self-Test Range
Check out this TSB 03-40-016

Some 2000-2002 ACCENT vehicles may experience the following conditions: Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0722: No pulse generator-B signal Third-gear "Fail-Safe" condition
"Check Engine" light on

If the vehicle experiences the above symptoms: Inspect the pulse generator-B and replace if necessary.
Reprogram the TCM using the Hi-Scan Pro

VEHICLES AFFECTED: Model: 2000-2002 Accent vehicles with automatic transmissions
Affected vehicle production date range:
3 DR: Produced through October 11, 2002
4 DR: Produced through September 3, 2002

Affected vehicle identification number (VIN) range:
3 DR: Produced through KMHCF35C63U235415
4 DR: Produced through KMHCG45C03U412818

The problem is you will have to take it to the dealer to get the reprogram done.

P2096 - Fuel trim too lean. Usually means vacuum leak. Look for crushed, broken or melted off vacuum hoses near intake manifold. Or an obvious hissing noise at a normal idle. If so replace or repair clear codes your done. If not obvious take carb cleaner spray with nozzle attached car running & go over all vacuum hoses, intake manifold, EGR valve see if idle raises if so you found leak. Repair. Could also be bad oxygen sensor switching bad O2 sensor but rarely.

Hope this helps!

2002 hyundai accent.transmission works great if you leave it in second gear.if leaving the selector in drive the transmission will start out in second and never shift to overdrive.when coming to a stop in...


Well two of the tranny codes ; P0734 and PO732 indicate gear 2,3,4 ratio incorrect. This can be caused by poor readings at the input and output speed sensors or pulse generators. The P1709 code is in reference to the kickdown servo switch.

Replacing the pulse generator set and TCM reprogramming( as per TSB) may solve your problem, otherwise you have a major component failure in the transmission unit. I would get some line pressures at the transmission checked first.

Sounds like the transmission is in fail safe mode, this happens when there is a transmission fault, you only have two gears 2nd and reverse.

Hope this helps - Steve
