Question about 2008 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Had to jump start now heater/ac wont work, no air blowing

Never had a problem with the car before, and then all of a sudden today it wouldn't start. the radio and lights came on, but when I turned the key it just clicked very fast, but you couldn't hear the engine starting at all. no sounds from the engine what so ever. I had a friend jump it with cables, and let it run for about 40 mins. the car now starts each time, but the heat/ac wont blow any air.

Check the fuse & relay (owners manual will show you where the box is)
Relay box in under the hood on the driver side just above the tire.
Inside fuse box should be on the side of the dashboard (driver side) very close to the door hinges.
I'm pretty sure you popped a relay or fuse during the jump.

You can pull the possible bad relay out and grab another relay (borrow it) from something else like brakes or lights.... just make sure it's the same part number.
(don't use fuel or engine control or anything that would stop the car from working)
Swap them and start the car to see if the AC/blower is working.

Hope this helps

Testimonial: "I couldn't get the fuse out and I didn't want to mess anything up, so I brought it to my local mechanic. He ordered the part for me, and he'll be putting it in this weekend. But he couldn't figure out why the car wouldn't start. The car ran for another 2 days and then didn't start, and had to jump it again. Then a week passed by, and today the car didn't start again. They checked the battery, and its fine. There are no lights on in the car, and nothing is plugged in. I don't know what to do :("

SOURCE: After approx 40 min of highway driving the AC stops blowing cold

This is a problem solved by moderation. There are pressure switches in the system which cut off the compressor for too high a charge and too low a charge. The unit is suppose to cycle between a predetermined range, a moderation between high and low. If you were having problems before replacing the freon there is at least 1 pressure switch that could have been your problem in the beginning. If you have a manifold guage which shows high and low pressure you can tell when the pressure switch is open or closed. Some switches and for sure the autoparts store selling them can tell you the op[erating range of your switch. You can try just replacing the low pressure switch and fly blind without the manifold guages. Know how many ounces of Freon you put in? Compare to specs to see if you overcharged.

SOURCE: hyundai elantra air cond heater stuck on heat

sounds like the heat blend cable is either dislodged or frozen, the cable runs from the control head to the blend door located on the drivers side just above the gas pedal ,it is not an easy job to replace, i sugest to take it to your local dealer, its not that costly and they will know exactly what to fix.

SOURCE: AC will blow cold air for a few minutes then start

you have moisture in the system this causes your expancion valve to freeze up an stop working, thats why it works for sort time and when it de-freezes stars working again. you need to do a EVAC & RECHARGE with a good AC service equipment, specially attention to pull vacumm por at least 20minutes so you get all moisture out of the system.
Good luck

SOURCE: Hyundai accent 2001 will not start all lights work radio works heater fan works battery in 3 months old when I turn the key all i hear is a humming sound for about 1 min. than nothing. weather has be

The humming would be the fuel pump coming on. It should only hum for a few seconds, then shut off.
Your problem is with the start circuit from the battery to the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Check the connections at the starter (the big cable) for tightness.
Is the battery charged up enough to turn the engine over? Check by turning headlights on and observe while someone turns key to crank. If they dim a LOT, then either battery is too low, or the starter is bad and needs removing for testing. If brightness doesn't change, then the circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is likely not working. Check for 12 volts at the small wire to starter solenoid with key in cranking position. If you have power there, the solenoid may be bad. Remove starter for testing. If no power at solenoid in starting position, then either the ignition switch is bad or the neutral safety switch might be the problem, or the wiring from the switch to the starter solenoid is not passing current.
Good luck.

you can run the compressor for a few minutes to see if you get cold air with the low pressure switch crossed out. if you don't have cold air after about 5 minutes then you still have a leak somewhere.

Air condition blowing hot air. Type of car: 2003 nissan pathfinder 4x4. Should I replace/add coolant?


Lack of Coolant wouldn't cause your AC to blow hot air.

You may have a vaccum leak in your dash board that is causing your heater to remain stuck.

If not this, then you will have to have your AC recharged. You can purchase a recharging kit from your local auto parts store! Fortunately, your vehicle can use the newer type of AC Recharging kits so you have many options!

Good luck and I hope this helped!

Air conditioner suddenly stops blowing cold and starts blowing heated air. Control panel indicates that it is still on air conditioner. Switching the control from vent to cold does not have any effect. ...


If you are absolutely confident the AC compressor is not kicking out on low pressure then it is the blend door actuator.

The blend door determines how much air blows through the heater core or evaporator.

The actuator can be purchased at dealer and maybe at a local part store.

AC blows hot air intermittanty


On the passenger side of the engine compartment near the radiator you will see a coolant control valve that has heater hoses running from it to the heater core inside vehicle.This is probably going bad.You can clamp off the hoses with some pliers while it is acting up and see if this stops the heat.If it does then it is probably bad.
