Remove the spark plugs and see if it turns over any faster, if it doesnt, you may have a spun bearing(bad news).

My 2004 Accent wont start. It started fine Tuesday, Wednesday morning it would not start for nothing. I tried it Thursday afternoon and it started fine. This is the second time it has done this.

Does the motor crank (starter engaged and turning the motor)? If it does not crank, do you hear the solenoid clicking (engaging the starter gear into the flywheel teeth)?

One day it starts then it dont replaced starter,crank sensor.fuel filter,ecurelay still same problem

How long since a tune-up?
Check for applicable trouble codes. Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
With intermittent issues, you need to test when problem is ongoing. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse.

I install a new fuel pump in a 2001 hyundai accent and now it wont start, whats wrong.

Was it running before you worked on it? If so, double check your work.
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Did you check good voltage and ground for fuel pump motor at the wiring connector?
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, I don't care if the pump is new, check fuel pressure, anyway. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Only crank the starter motor a few seconds at a time, let it cool off.
Are there any applicable trouble codes? How long since over-all tune-up?

Drove my 2014 Hyundai Accent through a puddle . Went through fine and slow got about a block from the puddle and it died. Clicks when you try to start it but won't start

Check your battery contacts. If they have corrosion or are loose it is conceivable that the solenoid will activate (the clicks) but the power from the battery will not transmit to the starter motor.

My car wont start. cranks but doesnt start

There are a few things that you didn't mention. Can you tell me if your car has "Anti-theft"? Your car also has a component called a Main Relay and another component called an Ignition Control Module. Any one of these can cause your symptoms. I hope this answers you question. If you need further information or instructions, write back. I hope to hear how your repair is going, good luck.

I have a 2002 Hyundai accent . The car was dead so I got a new battery the car started then would not start again after I shut it off so I bought a new starter it cranked up and now she won't crank...

other possible causes if battery and starter and starter solenoid been replaced.battery cables could be bad causing poor ground.if you have manual transmission could have faulty clutch pedal safety switch and automatic transmission could have faulty neutral safety switch.and could have fault in the theft security system.

Hyundai accent 2001 will not start all lights work radio works heater fan works battery in 3 months old when I turn the key all i hear is a humming sound for about 1 min. than nothing. weather has be

The humming would be the fuel pump coming on. It should only hum for a few seconds, then shut off.
Your problem is with the start circuit from the battery to the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Check the connections at the starter (the big cable) for tightness.
Is the battery charged up enough to turn the engine over? Check by turning headlights on and observe while someone turns key to crank. If they dim a LOT, then either battery is too low, or the starter is bad and needs removing for testing. If brightness doesn't change, then the circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is likely not working. Check for 12 volts at the small wire to starter solenoid with key in cranking position. If you have power there, the solenoid may be bad. Remove starter for testing. If no power at solenoid in starting position, then either the ignition switch is bad or the neutral safety switch might be the problem, or the wiring from the switch to the starter solenoid is not passing current.
Good luck.

Yes, the solenoid is a seperate part attached to the starter. It should have constant power on one terminal and Power on the other when the key is turned to the crank position

Hyundai 2001 accent wont start intermittently. Replaced cam & crank sensors still no spark.Could it be key code sensor or wont engine crank if thats not right? Any other tips???

I'd check the key at the dealership. The battery may be flat in it. Also have the key code match to the CPU checked. The security may be the problem or it may be an electical fault such as sticky starter motor brushes or a dead segment in the starter motor amature.

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. 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.
