Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

2001 Santa Fe possible starter problem

My wife has the habit of turning the key quickly when starting the engine and sometimes doesn't let it turn over completely. Lately, if she does this the first time and it won't start, on the next turn of the key, the battery won't have enough power to turn the engine over. This forces me to jump start the vehicle with cables and it'll turn over right away telling me that the battery still has a good charge. I took the battery to an Auto store and they tested it, said it was a good battery. Thinking it was the alternator, I ran the engine and disconnected one of the battery cables, but it keeps running (a good sign that the alternator is good). That's when someone suggested it might be the starter. Could this be a correct diagnosis?

    Thanks a lot for the insight!! Great answer!

    So that would definitely be the starter itself, not the solenoid?

Yes, because the bushings wear out, causing the armature to hit the field under starting load.....dead short. Jumping gives you added amperage allowing the starter to work. (forcing it to work) Buy a new one.
P.S. DON"T RUN YOUR ENGINE WITH THE BATTERY DISCONNECTED!!!!!! You will cook your alternator........zzzzzzzzzzz!

My 2011 Santa Fe won't start I turn the key it cranks once and stops but is followed by what sounds to be a fan of some sort for as long as I have the key turned


Sounds like maybe a starter problem , bendix or I way overrunning clutch. Have someone crank over the engine an you listen under the hood for the starter . I think your hearing the starter motor running but it's not engaging the flywheel , at lest a possibility ! good luck an hope this helps !

2001 santa fe starting problem


If you have no issues with your battery cables, I would say it is a starter solenoid that is the problem. As long as it clicks, the start circuit from the ignition switch to the starter is working, and the starter motor tests good, so likely the solenoid is the problem. Is the electrical wire on the solenoid tight?

2002 hyundai Santa fe will not start. I turn key and starter turned for 3 seconds then stopped and now when i turn key NOTHING. I hear a circuit sound in back of car when i turn key but no other sound. ...


Definitely a starting system problem. That sound you hear in the back is the fuel pump.

Starting system circuit components (besides wiring harness)
1. Ignition Key Switch - closes the starter relay control circuit to energize the relay and close the contacts inside the relay (you can check this by locating the relay in the underhood fuse/relay box and have a friend turn the key while you listen/feel if the relay 'clicks'
2. Starter Relay or its Contacts
3. Starter Solenoid - pushes/pulls the starter gear into the engine's flywheel ring-gear and its contacts close to provide battery power to the starter itself.
4. Starter itself - poor brush contact with the armature's commutator will prevent the starter to spin/turn

If you are 'Electrically' talented, you can check to see if you're getting battery power to the starter solenoid by using a simple 12 volt test light/bulb. Connect one lead to the starter solenoid terminal and the other to chassis/engine ground and have a buddy turn the ignition key - if the light turns 'ON', then you know that particular circuit is OK but the starter solenoid is not energizing to push the starter gear into the flywheel ring-gear to turn the engine over. If it doesn't, the problem is elsewhere (wiring, starter relay, starter relay control circuit, etc).

You can have a qualified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose your vehicle. OR, you can Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, illustrations, etc.

SANTA FE 2002 BATTERY IS GOOD TURN KEY TO START POSITION MAKES ONE CLICK SOUND UNDERNEATH THE R/H DASH AREA THEN NOTHING ENGINE WILL NOT TURN OVER


Check for a good/clean connection on your battery terminals.Make sure it's on good & tight, then try to start the car - if that's not it. Get a jump, then go to Auto Zone, O'Reilley's, etc and get the battery & the starter checked. I'm betting it's either a poor connection, bad battery or your starter is going out (or possibly the starter relay switch) Start with your connections - that's the easy fix.

When turning the key to start the engine there is nothing but an occasional clicking sound. The battery is good and the connections are good. Could this be the solenoid?


the starter powers off a relay , then goes to the solenoid, then to the stater/motorr itself. possible starter motor. the solinoid may not be servicable as its own unit.

You could take the starter out and take it to a place like autozone and they can test it for free.They even test the system I believe when the car is still running.All stores have different testing equipment.

2001 hyundai santa fe, was running fine, went to crank it, all lights and chimes work, but it will not start. Not the battery, not the starter, thought possibly it was a transponder key, but was informed...


dear friend:this might sound stupid,but remove the key from the barrel and try again,then see if the dash lights dim when trying to start,if it does the battery is to flat to turn the engine,if it is a auto shift the lever slightly forward and backward to make sure it is not the neutral switch.
