Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Santa Fe. 2wd 4cyl. It stalled one day and would not start back. It tried once (a mere rumble) and stalled again. Upon inspection I found the blue wire to the camshaft sensor was pulled from the connector. After fixing this wire the car started but stalled again after a few feet of movement. I replaced the entire connector and sensor and it now will not start at all. The capacitor that is held on by the camshaft position senor bolt is cracked. I replaced this with just a piece of 10 gauge primary wire, bypassing the capacitor. Still no start. Code reads P0335 cranks shaft position sensor "A" circuit malfunction.

    Just found an article and checked the car. Sure enough the tach does not budge when cranking the engine. Cleared codes and tried to start again, still no start. Read that bad crank sensor will keep a car from starting but once it finds TDC it will run until car is shut off and the code sets in.

2004 Santa Fe stalling problem

I appreciate your predicament.. it's virtually impossible to diagnosis your problem here without personally inspecting the vehicle. Intake air flow is rarely the cause of the problem you describe... it's usually something more sinister. Without more information, I cannot tell you anything more than have it inspected (hopely by a competent technician)... sometimes the obvious is not the cause... it's the innocuousness possibilities that confound us. and it's this confoundment which agravates us.

Stalling will not stay idling

We had the same problem, tried everything. Problem was the ceramic part of the catalic converter, wich broke in pieces and came into the exhaust, so it could not get rid of the exhaust gas....

2001 Hyundai Santa Fe - Code P0421 Help!?

code p 0421 refers to warm up cat converter bank 1 --- efficiency below threshold ===causes ---cat converter---wiring ---HO2S (heated oxygen sensor )
there are not 4 oxygen sensor as you have been told but just 2 oxygen sensors located after each of the cat converters
The other 2 are heated oxygen sensor which are located in the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe before the cat converters
heated oxygen sensors do a completely different job to the O2 sensors in that they report to the ECM, the combustion gas mixture so the the ECM can adjust the mixture for max performance
The oxygen sensors (O2) read what is left after the cat converters have done their job and report to the ECM so that it can fine tune the mix
IF you didn't replace the correct cat converter then that will make the code come back
If you just replaced the O2 sensor , well that doesn't even figure in the problem
