Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

2002 Accent GL Won't Start now

My car just wouldn't start this past Sunday. I tried several times on different days and it just won't start. It will turn over but it won't seem to fire. I don't know if this can have anything to do with it, but my check engine light has been on for over a year. They said it was probably due to some type of emmissions & didn't seem serious. Any help sure would be appreciated.

Thank You - John

The problem you describe could be caused by NUMEROUS causes. 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. If you don't want to do this, 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.). If you want to GUESS at the possible causes, 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.

Get the codes pulled, sounds like you are in limp mode and I am guessing an issue with the transmission.

Taures 2002 won't start battery and starter checked out good


Not really following your story.
When you say it will not start, the starter would only affect things if the engine will not crank.
If the engine will not crank, you would need to know if the battery is fully charged and if the starter has power and ground.
If the battery is low, something may be draining it overnight. If the battery is charged, the starter should have power.
The neutral safety switch or key switch could be the problem if the small wire on the starter has no power when the key switch is in the start position.

Sounds like its a starter problem,if you can pull the starter off take it to an auto parts store,

there are many locations that have equipment to put a load on the starter, and they will be

able to tell if its bad. once you pull the starter off, if you can check the teeth on the fly wheel,

if there is a dead spot, the starter could spin and not engage the flywheel. I hope it's the

starter. the bendix on the starter the teeth that engage the flywheel could also have dead

spot's. and not engage all the time. good luck!
