My speedometer odometer;cruise recently stopped working 2000 Hyundai elantra I don't know where to start looking?

First thing I would go after is the speed sensor on the transmission. Have the codes read to make sure. The sensor is on the drivers side. Standing at the fender, look down between the air plenum/filter and the engine and you will see it.

My 2000 hyundai elantra is automatic it has a code p0734. which the mechanic explained me that i have to get the speen sensor replace and get new clutch because the 4 gear ratio is bad. pls advice what 2...

P0734=A/T 4th gear incorrect ratio. This has nothing to do with the speed sensor. If the speed sensor was faulty, it would also set OTHER gear incorrect ratio codes. My experience tells me the 4th gear incorrect ration indicates the torque converter clutch (TCC) is slipping and nothing more. Unless there was a speed sensor DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code), the sensor is not the issue (yet). The fact P0734 was set (trust the computer), the TCC is slipping (out of range). Question: Maintenance history may indicate the wrong transmission fluid may have been introduced. Hyundai's Transmission fluid is strictly SPIII... there is no substitute. The incorrect fluid will cause 4th gear slippage. Now, having said that, it doesn't mean the 4th gear (lock-up) clutch isn't worn out. Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.

My 2000 Hyunda Elantra returns a P0501 code. Which sensor is this?

The code P0501 indicates that the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is out of range. This may be due to a bad sensor or bad or dirty wiring/connector. I'm not sure exactly where the sensor is located on the Elantra but it's on the transmission possibly around the differential housing near one of the axle shafts. Hope this help.

Transmission has problem shifting have to put automatic trans into 1st to gett to go reads codePO731 on code reader any ideas?

DTC P0731 - Gear 1 incorrect ratio

Input and output speed sensors in the transmission are the most likely cause, They fail alot, relatively cheap to repair, if left ignored can burn up the transmission.

Good luck.

My 2000 Hyundai Elantra is stalling intermintantly as I slow down at stop signs/lights, etc. I have noticed that the speedometer is not working properly.....i.e. when I'm moving at 30 mph the speedo is...

According to the Hyundai service website, "If there is an open or short circuit in the vehicle speed sensor signal circuit, the engine may stall when the vehicle is decelerated to a stop." This sounds like what you're describing, so you should check out the detailed troubleshooting info for the VSS at, available free with registration.

The transmission does have a separate computer (TCM), it's a $700 plus item from the dealer, but if necessary you can get one for much less from a salvage yard. The same goes for the ECM.

2000 Hyundai elantra transmission delay, reverse going

Did you check the transmission fluid level? If necessary, add fluid. However you probably have a more serious problem. Take the car to a qualified transmission mechanic.

Describe your is there a sensor on a 2000 Hyundai elantra automatic transmission Problem

YES!... There are many sensors on an automatic transmission which could pose a problem -- depending on what the problem actually is. For example, there are 'input' and 'output' speed sensors, there is a fluid temperature sensor, there is a vehicle speed sensor, and there are several solenoid valves located inside the transmission connected to the valve body. Each and every one of these items can be a problem -- again -- depends on what the problem ACTUALLY is. Agreed?

Automatic transmission not shifting smoothly

For the 2000 elantra I checked the Autozone website, don't know if you have one near where you live. However, what happens a lot of times is the speed sensors go out on the transmissions. If it is not funcioning properly the transmission can't funtion properly either. They listed an input sensor and an output sensor so I can't be 100% if you indeed have both and if you do which one might be bad. You may want to have those checked first and go from there. I have had several vehicles that I was almost certain the entire transmission was going to be bad and it ended up just being the transmission speed sensor. Hope this helps.....
