SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Elantra won't start !!!

Could be a problem with the clutch pedal switch. I'd have a look under the dash first to make sure no wires have been knocked of the pedal switch. If there's no sound, not even a clunking sound it may be the solenoid. I'd first want to eliminate the pedal wiring. Remove the small wire on the starter (most likely a spade type terminal) and using a piece of insulaated wire attach it to the starter where you removed the spade. Flick the other end of the wire on the positive of the battery. If the starter operates your looking at the pedal switch/ relay fault. If not its the starter. MAKE SURE CAR IS IN NEUTRAL BEFORE TRYING THIS. Ignition switched off. That way it will crank but not start.
Cheers John

SOURCE: 95 hundai accent wont start

The wiring diagrams for the 95 Accent do not show any OEM (original equipment manufacture) 'anti-theft' systems.... this does not preclude the possibility that an After Market system was installed.

Definitely a starting system problem. That sound you hear in the back is the fuel pump.

Starting system circuit components (besides wiring harness)
1. Ignition Key Switch - closes the starter relay control circuit to energize the relay and close the contacts inside the relay (you can check this by locating the relay in the underhood fuse/relay box and have a friend turn the key while you listen/feel if the relay 'clicks'
2. Starter Relay or its Contacts
3. Starter Solenoid - pushes/pulls the starter gear into the engine's flywheel ring-gear and its contacts close to provide battery power to the starter itself.
4. Starter itself - poor brush contact with the armature's commutator will prevent the starter to spin/turn

If you are 'Electrically' talented, you can check to see if you're getting battery power to the starter solenoid by using a simple 12 volt test light/bulb. Connect one lead to the starter solenoid terminal and the other to chassis/engine ground and have a buddy turn the ignition key - if the light turns 'ON', then you know that particular circuit is OK but the starter solenoid is not energizing to push the starter gear into the flywheel ring-gear to turn the engine over. If it doesn't, the problem is elsewhere (wiring, starter relay, starter relay control circuit, etc).

You can have a qualified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose your vehicle. OR, you can Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, illustrations, etc.

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

Radio, Brake Light, Interior lights, And Wont Shift Out Of Park.


This problem sounds like you dislodged the switch on the brake pedal lever. You need the signal to unlock the vehicle from Park. You will probably find that the Brake lights do not work when you press the brake pedal.

Now if the switch is good, you probably broke the fuse feeding power to the switch. You can get a wiring diagram online by running a Websearch or going to Autozone.com and registering your car. This site has a HELP section at the bottom of the page and you would need to toggle between free and pay info.

Transmission locked up in park


Turn the ignition on so the lights are all up on the dash dont start the vehicle. Put your foot on the brake pedal and make sure u can hear the shift lock click in and out with repeated brake pedal applications. If you cant hear it check the shift lock switch onder the dash on brake pedal. Might be built into the brake light switch check that they work also. I hope this helps

The marker lights, brake lights,dash lights,power windows,power locks,radio and heater dont work


When you release the brake pedal, there is a switch underneath the brake pedal that disconnects the circuit to your brake lights causing your brake lights to switch off. Sometimes this brake light switch will go bad and need replacement. If your brake light stays on after you turn your car or truck off and you don't want to run your battery down, you may be able to get down underneath the brake pedal and manually pull up on the brake light switch to deactivate it until you can get it repaired.
and i think you can make a diagnostic by yourself and the Autel MaxiDAS DS708 can help you

Gear stuck on parking


do you hear a clickung sound everytime you step on the brake pedal?? get into the truck and be very quiet. turn on the key so the dash lights up and turn off all accessories such as radio and heat so its totally quiet in the truck hit the brake pedal and listen for clicking sound coming from shifter area. if no sound is heard at all than your solenoid to release the shifter from park is not working. start with doing the test and post results.

2007 mercury grand marquis, has auto remote start. car started normally with key,then when i pushed brake pedal car stalled. now car will not turn over or start back up. when i turn on ignition nothing...


What brand is the remote start, and is it new to the vehicle or has it been on and working properly for a while?

Most remote starts have a feature that will shut the vehicle off when the brake is applied after the vehicle was started with the remote and the key has not been used to turn the ignition. However this is not what happened in your case. Some remote starts have an on/off switch that is installed under the dash, depending on brand and installation. If you have that switch, turn it off. If this does not correct the problem, locate the power with for the remote start and disconnect it. If this still doesn't correct the problem then is sounds like it has caused other electrical issues.

My tailkights are not working at all. My Park in the car is stuck and won;t come down with motor started.


turn engine off. Turn key to OFF position, (no lights on dash lit). Step on brake, pull shift lever to neutral. start car, put in drive and go. this is emergency bypass.

When the key is ON, the shift lock soneoid is engaged and won't release till the brake is applied. Since you don't have brake lights, it means the solenoid won't unlock.
check for a blown fuse or a bad brake switch on the brake pedal.

OFF is the first click clockwise from LOCK. it goes, LOCK, OFF, ON, START.
