Question about 2000 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Sonata with an electrical problem. There is no power, but the battery is fully charged and the main fuse is good. When you first open the door the dome light works and you can turn the parking lights on. Once you turn the key, everything goes dead. I tried to jump the car, but still there was no power. I removed the battery and had it check and it was fully charged. Any ideas???

I have a 2000 f 250 superduty I replaced battery and alternator but its still not charging

Check out your main wiring harness from the Alternators' heavy wiring. Some models had a green fuse a foot or two from the Alternator. It may be in a rubber cap like a Marine fitting and it may be blown.

If no success, the electric system is finicky. Although your battery may be new, a fully charged battery is putting out about 13.2 to 13.4 Volts. The Antitheft lockout will interfere with the charging and sometimes the cranking systems.

I have worked on trucks like yours and you need to fully charge the battery before connecting it to your truck. I have jump started similar trucks and they will charge with a jump attached, then stop charging several minutes after the jumper is off. You really need to watch the Volt gauge the first 30-40 miles after replacing the Battery to verify charging.

There is a remote chance that your Ignition switch is not providing current to the Alternator. The Alternator needs current going to the brushes inside. Check for power going to the Alternators plugin on the Alternators' casing with the Ignition switch ON. If it is dead, change the Ignition switch

Thanks for Using Fixya.

I have a toyota corolla and battery is fully charged no power

Sounds like a bad connection with one of the battery cables check the connection to both cables at both ends and I personally would make sure that i cleaned the main engine ground (where the negative wire from battery connects to engine). Good luck!
