    With the key "ON' and engine "OFF" it is normal to have a 'CHECK ENGINE' light 'ON.' After the engine starts, the Check Engine light should go OFF unless an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics II) code has been set/stored in the Engline Control Unit (ECU). This is what you need to find out so I can help you - find an approved OBDII scanner and record/document codes you find in the system. Let me know what you find.

    What's the diagnostic trouble code?... Scan for trouble codes and let us know what you find.. otherwise, it could be anything!

Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.
Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).
Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

Engine stalls but starts right back up


How long since a tune-up? To check for some codes, use a jumper wire between A and B terminals at datalink connector. Then, turn key just till dash lights come on. The mil starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes, your looking for two digit numbers. This is 12 pin data link connector obd1.

Battery, brakes and check engine light came on but the car will still run when driving with the problem lights on the car transmission would shut down but the engine still runs if you shut the car off it...


Year make and model ?
On some cars the brake warning light and battery warning light are on the same circuit. A problem with either system will turn both lights on. The check engine light means there are trouble codes in the computer that need to be retrieved to assist in troubleshooting the problem.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

2006 jeep liberty dying randomly. Oil change and new air filter. About to change spark plugs and wires. No gauge lights, no sputtering. Just turns off randomly, starts right back up when I put in neutral...


My 2006 Liberty has a similar issue. The oil light beeps and then the engine shuts off. I put the car in park and it restarts and the oil light goes off. I had the oil, filter, and lines checked and everything checked out. The mechanic thinks it may be the oil sensor going out and that for safety reasons the engine shuts down when the oil light comes on.

CAR WON'T STAY RUNNING


when key on and engine off, does the security light flash constantly? if so its shutting down the fuel pump, it starts momentarily due to the computer priming the engine with fuel. how to reset, turn key to run position, leave it on touch nothing, takes 10-12 minutes, start watching light around 10 minutes. it will stop flashing... turn key off, then back on and start this will reset the security system. they are sensitive on this platform car it will happen again. good luck!

Car losing power and turning off


if your car is 2003+ try turning the key to run (but not crank) then to acc. 3 times and the engine codes will show up on the odometer, then you can look up what those codes are to help diagnose some of the problems.
