Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

I think I need to replace the starter

When you turn the key it clicks once and doesnt start. I just replaced the belt that powered the ac and power steering, and when I got done it seemed like there was a starter problem.... Where is the starter on an 2001 Elantra and how do I get to it?

    the battery is a month old, but i had checked it anyway. Its at full charge. The belts are nice and tight. The windshield wipers will come on, it just doesnt want to turn over.

    I should also add the car started once after I got the belt on, but it took a couple of turns. Now it just clicks.

I suspect that the battery is bad. Do the wipers work with the key on? If not, battery is bad for sure. You should check battery voltage when trying to start and it needs to be over 9 volts or the battery is bad. Did you leave a belt loose? When you press down on them in the middle, they should depress no more than 1/2 inch.

ITurn key, clicking sound, no turn over


If it won't crank over, it's a problem in the starting circuit, not the ignition circuit. Check your battery and starter for clean, tight connections. Listen for that click to see if it comes from the starter solenoid on the starter-maybe have someone try to start it while you watch and listen under the hood. If the click is from the solenoid (and not from the starter relay), then the starter is not getting full battery power to crank (bad connection), or the starter needs to come off and be tested.
If the click is from the starter relay, you could pull off the little purple wire to the starter solenoid and see if it has 12 volts when the key is in start position. If you have power there in cranking position on the switch, the solenoid is bad or the starter may be the problem-again, it will have to come off for testing. If you have no power at the solenoid in cranking position, the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid is not working. The start relay and the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch if manual transmission) are in the starting circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Good luck.

When I turn the ignition key I get nothing from the engine, is this a problem with the ignition switch or the solenoid?


i would not rule out the starter-your best bet to eliminate the starter is to have someone bang on the starter as you turn the key to start it-if it starts great get the starter replaced-it is locking up-if it starts smoking or you smell something burning
that too is a bad starter-replace it
if neither of these work then have someone check the ignition(as long as its not the battery-just cause it has power doesnt mean the battery is not bad-it may not have enough power to start the vehicle)

I have replaced the battery and my jeep still will not start. Do I need to do something else


When you say it doesnt start what do you mean? does the engine crank over but wont start, or is it that when you turn the key nothing happens,i will assume it does nothing when the key is turned just due to the fact you replaced the battery,the next step is to check for power at the starter,have someone turn the key to start and hold it there while you check for power at the small connection at the starter, the starter has two connections, one has power at all times and the other a small connection gets power when the key is in the crank (start) position, if theres power at the starter then you have a bad starter, if theres no power then you may have a bad key chip or a bad neutral safty swith, now if the truck is spinning over but not starting then the first common thing i would check is for fuel preasure at the injector rail, good luck hope this helps.

My car will not start and I bought a brand new battery today and installed it. However the car still will not even fire up at all, but the power in the car still works. What could cause this?


Sounds to me like you need the starter tested or replaced,if you are not getting even a click then the starter needs a set of brushes,if all you get is a click then you need a starter solenoid,either way the starter needs to come off.

Car doesnt start at all !


check battery
check fuses & wiring to starter
check power at starter main (big red wire)
check for power at starter solenoid (small) wire when key turned start position
if all above are good, try whacking starter body with a hammer lightly while trying to start, don't run yourself over if it does!
replace starter if all electrical good

if all electrical fail test/inspection, ei; no power to starter on small wire, yet big wire hot, check for bad ignition switch

check for

First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

Everything turns on when key is turned, but engine doesnt turn, starter doesnt click, nothing...just recently replaced starter and alternator and nuetral switch (its a manual)..could it be the solenoid?


If you have verified that the battery has 12volts, and there is power 12V at the trigger wire on the solenoid with the key turned to start, likely the solenoid is bad...I'd question this though because the solenoid comes with the starter and therefore should be new. (defective?) If there's no power there, re-check what you replaced and also ignition switch.

1995 nissan pu wont start... everything turns on


check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps

Starter has no power in start 95 Lumina would not start after shutting off. All accessories work. I also jumped the solenoid and it turns but the starter doesnt.


You are reading this wrong...solenoids don't turn. They activate the starter...that turns. Check your battery connections and battery/charging system. The starter requires far more power than anything else in the car, so those items working won't tell you much.
