Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

My '98 S10 ignition switch will click, then work.

My '98 S10 (4cyl, 5 speed)ignition switch will click instead of turn over, but will occasionally start fine (from occasionally once, then start OK the next time; to numerous times and getting worse.) Jump started on hill after several attempts to turn key on while rolling, as it didn't seem to be getting electricity the 1st or 2nd time. Battery & connections seem OK. Thank you kindly! -Jim

    Aforementioned S10 has only 92K miles - but yes, it was the starter solenoid. Thanks & God bless. Was worrying needlessly that it was going to be plagued with electrical problems like a previous vehicle...

First check all cables for corrosion on the battery. then go under the truck and check all cables that are on the starter. if they are clean then replace the starter because the solenoid is going bad.

98 ford ranger 4cyl 5 speed. When u turn the key to on position I get no warning lights on dash except battery light and seatbelt light. Nothing else.truck wont start. Dont even click.


Check the batter voltage first. If not that check fuse panel under hood for a 100 amp fuse check to see if the fuse is bad or if it has power. Also check fuseable link wire at starter to see if wire is still good. If it is bad, internal short possible on starter, take out and test it. Replace fusible link.

88 s10 2.8 5 speed have power to lights, blower, radio, but wont turn over when turning key no clicking nothing wont even start or turn over by crossing solenoid


Since you have power to your accessories, here are a few more things to consider:
1: Automatic transmission not in park or the neutral safety switch is faulty
2: On manual transmissions clutch pedal not depressed or or clutch start switch failure
3: Broken or loose wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid, and ignition switch
4: Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. Manual transmission. place transmission in gear and rock the vehicle to manually turn the engine. Remove starter and inspect pinion and flywheel

1995 4cyl 5 speed dome light stays on after i turn of ignition and also hear a peep'chime typ sound when driving. any ideas?


one of the door switches that actuate the dome light is probably shorted. check all door switches. Open doors one at a time and mess with the switch to see if the light will go out. If the light normally has a delay before it goes out, look for the relay that does that function and replace it.

I have 98 Chevy S10 pick-ups? MY problem is there


Yes it could well possibly be the ignition switch or starter solenoid or intermittent ignition switch starter contact.Again check connections on battery especially the ground connection at the block.Also there could be air in the fuel line any of these could be hindering start up!

Go to your local shucks or auto zone and they can check any codes behind your check engine light and it's free. It sounds like one of two things a O2 sensor or your mass airflow sensor but they will tell you for sure
