Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

2 Answers

If the starter or solenoid goes out, would that cause the Hyundai Santa Fe to shut off and be unable to start again?

While pulling into a parking space at the store, the vehicle shut off by itself. After it shut off i shifted it in "park", and tried to restart it. It hesitated and did not start. Tried again and nothing at all. But inside lights and radio are working. A few times before this incident, I had gone to start it and it hesitated to start at first then started right up.

Normally a starter would not be the cause of the car shutting down unless there was some massive short on the solenoid cable. The 'hesitation' could be caused by a dirty/defective solenoid or starter. The other immediate possibility is the start relay. Have a mechanic check out your starting system and/or get a code reader and check your on-board computer for any error codes.

Santa fe 2007 wont start makes a single click noise


May be ab bad starter solenoid, or corroded/loose connection at starter, or (ground). Could also be a bad ignition switch. Start from the load; the starter. Test for 12V at starter, OK. Connect short wire from starter and touch sylenoid connection..

2001 santa fe starting problem


If you have no issues with your battery cables, I would say it is a starter solenoid that is the problem. As long as it clicks, the start circuit from the ignition switch to the starter is working, and the starter motor tests good, so likely the solenoid is the problem. Is the electrical wire on the solenoid tight?

check your starter solenoid - replace if needed.
check the ignition switch (positive wire that goes to solenoid) - re-connect if loose.
or... check your battery- if below 12 volts replace it.

When turning the key to start the engine there is nothing but an occasional clicking sound. The battery is good and the connections are good. Could this be the solenoid?


the starter powers off a relay , then goes to the solenoid, then to the stater/motorr itself. possible starter motor. the solinoid may not be servicable as its own unit.

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Won't start. no sound from starter. Not sure I hear the fuel pump start up. Does this car have a reset switch for the fuel pump like the Ford Escort and other cars?


Start from scratch.
Does the battery have 12 volts across the terminals? If yes, then does the starter click when you turn the key? If no, replace the battery.
If the starter clicks when you turn the key, but the engine doesn't crank, replace the starter.
If no click, then check for power at the starter solenoid.
If there is power at the solenoid, but no click when you turn the key, check the starter relay. If none of this fixes your problem, you may want to have your mechanic check for broken or corroded wires

My hyundai santa fe


Hi! i think you must describe more problem symptoms;
DESCRIPTION The starting system includes the battery, starter motor, solenoid switch, ignition switch, inhibitor switch(A/T), ignition lock switch, connection wires and the battery cable. When the ignition key is turned to the start position, current flows and energizes the starter motor's solenoid coil. The solenoid plunger and clutch shift lever are activated, and the clutch pinion engages the ring gear. The contacts close and the starter motor cranks. In order to prevent damage caused by excessive rotation of the starter armature when the engine starts, the clutch pinion gear overruns. http://hmaservice.com/viewer/dispimg.asp?path=/data/Passenger/HY/HMA/ENG/SHOP-images/HY-SM13-IMAGES-ENG/ebkd010a.gif INSPECT SPARK TEST 1. Remove the spark plug cable. 2. Using a spark plug socket, remove the spark plug. 3. Remove the ignition coil. 4. Install the spark plugs to each spark plug cable. 5. Ground the spark plugs. 6. Check is spark occurs while engine is being cranked. 7. Using a spark plug socket, install the spark plugs. 8. Install the spark plug cable and ignition coil.
