Question about Hyundai Motor 2003 Sonata

1 Answer

I just replace the motor in my 2003 Hyundai Sonata GLS 2.7L and when I try to shift out of Park, the car does not move. The gear stick moves and the lights on the dash light up correctly for what gear it should be in, but the car doesn't move. The transmission worked fine before replacing the engine. Is there any plug I could have missed when reconnecting the engine to the car?

Sounds like the torque converter may not be bolted in properly. Good place to start checking!

unless you can discover what DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) has been recorded/set in the control module, it's anyone's guess.

My Son's 01 Sonata displayed the exact same systems and it was his catalytic converter. The metallic sounds were the converter guts disintegrating.

If I understand you correctly, you have ALL forward gears working, but reverse doesn't?... then the problem is in the transmission itself or the linkage on the trans linkage into reverse.

If your lights and horn etc work then it's not your battery so it could be your starter motor stuck. With the ignition off, try putting it in gear then pushing from the car hood/front to gently rock the vehicle back and forth. It should only move a few inches as its in gear. This MAY free the bendix in the starter motor (if this is the cause). If it does work then remember its sticking for a reason... Have it stripped and cleaned! Hope this helps

Have a 2003 Dodge Intrepid. I can't get the shifter on the column to move out of park even when I move the steering wheel up,down & side to side. Is it the cable, the link, what?


The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.


Also i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These are direct links with appropriate solutions to the specific problems of gear ****.

Hyundai sonata will noy shift out of park


Can you shift out of park if you don't start the engine ?
Often times the brake light switch is faulty or the solenoid that locks the shifter. Sometimes the shifter can be moved if the key lock is turned but not to the on position.

Will not shift out of park


can you move the shifter and it wont go into gear or will the shifter not move at all?? if shifter wont move, there is an electrical solinoid that will not allow the shifter to release when the car is off, that could be faulty, i think it also has a safety mechanism that wont allow it to shift if your foot is not on the brake? if the shifter moves through prn321 but the trans wont come out of park, you have broken the shifter cableand or damaged the shifter mechanism in the trans. hope i have been of some assistance
