Question about Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

My 2009 Santa Fe has been stalling occasionally since I purchased it. Sometimes it is 6 weeks between stalls but sometimes it stalls 3 or 4 times in one short trip and does it several days in a row. The check engine light comes on and I take off the gas cap and put it back on and it will go out after 20 to 40 miles later. How can this stalling problem be corrected? I took it to the dealer to check it and they said it wouldn't do it for them so they did not know how to fix it. Susan

There are several things that could cause your problem. U said the check engine light comes on but does it stay on? either way it should set a code. You ned to find out if there is a code & u can do that by going to auto zone so they can pull the code. We need the code. So get the code and let me know , I will stay on chat.

2009 Hyunda Santa Fe stalls while driving


I had a similar problem with my Santa Fe. It occurred intermittently but after I turned the steering wheel to the left. After much screwing around by the dealer and trying to baffle me with BS we heard about a strange solution. I am not a mechanic but the problem somehow related to a spring in the Airbag on the steering wheel. Changed the spring and "Stone the flame'n crows" problem solved. Never had a problem since.

I had the same problem...for me it was the Engine Coolant Sensor (it sends information to the computer). The car accelerated without any reason, stalled, and sometimes did not want to start.

$20 at Advance Auto, 1/2 work and its fixed.

The AC unti is driven by a belt coming from the crankshaft. The belt is attached to the ac compressor which has a clutch unit that is suppose to let the compresser pully spin freely. by the sounds of your problem you might need a new pully/clutch for your ac compressor

Bases on the limited info provided, most likely the ignition switch. If you list the symptoms you experience when it doesn't start it would be easier to diagnose your problem for example: does it crank? does the key turn and do nothing? etc. Hope this answers your question.

Had this issue at 30,000 kms. Computer needed upgrade firmware/software (or whatever the appropriate term is) This was covered by the dealer (but was under warranty at the time). Enquire with your dealer
