Question about 2000 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

Broken alternator belt

One morning on my way to work:

car started great so i drove from the parking lot. At about 200 meters the car engine just died and i was lucky to be at a stop sign. I tried to start it again for 3 times. It cranks but the engine does not turn over. I opened my hood and saw the alternator belt ripped. Got it towed and replaced the alternator belt. However until now it cranks but the engine doesn't turn over. Thanks for the help in advance.

What's the difference between 'CRANKS" or 'TURN OVER'? Do you MEAN the engine cranks (turns over) but WONT start? If this is the problem, then there are NUMEROUS possible causes (i.e., fuel pressure (fuel pump) Bad Gas/Petrol, Ignition, Air Flow, Cylinder Compression, Crank Position Sensor, vacuum leaks, Nut behind the steering wheel, ECM, etc. An alternator belt would not cause the problem you describe. Take the vehicle back to the mechanic you replaced the belt and tell him to fix it!

Mazda wont start, brand new battery


sounds like you have a failing ecu. the capacitors in the ecu are worn out. there has been a lot of problems with the ecu on mazda's over the years, only take one out put overload from the alternator and the ecu starts playing up. no codes come up as it don't code its self. having the battery off is like a reset.

Alternator?


I would say that you have a bad battery . If the alternator is charging ok but the battery is bad all the current will go to the dying cell . Have a load test done on the battery to eliminate it as a source of a problem. Next have the alternator bench tested as there may be a problem in the rectifier pack

Alternator/Electrical??


check the connection on your battery terminal ends. if they are loose or corroded that could explain the intermittent no spark. also could be a short somewhere but id check the terminals first. I had that problem once and the car did all sorts of weird things. airbag light, check engine light, randomly wouldnt start until i would mess with the battery.

My 2000 ford ranger and something draining battery


bad alternator possible or bad battery..even though its new that battery can be bad. I would take a volt meter and with the engine running check the volts of the battery..If the volts are 12 you need to replace alternator, if volts are 14 you need to check the battery. to check the battery hold the volt meter to the battery and have someone start the car..while the starter is cranking battery volts should not drop below 10volts.if they do your battery is bad.
