Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Sonata

1 Answer

Car won't start, click or even think about turning over. Battery is only a few months old, radio, windows, fans, lights all work loud and clear. I'm thinking it's either the starter or the solenoid or the solenoid relay. What's the best way to isolate and locate the problem so I don't replace all 3 before figuring it out?

On the steering column, where the ignition is, pull it off and check the voltages (anywhere around 12 is ok) if everything there checks out, check the starter voltage to see what the power is. I have been working on a jeep with the same problem and also my brother had the exact problem you have. Most likely its the starter. On your car (side mount) its in the middle front, right by the bumper

2002 Suburban clicks when trying to start.


Yes it could be your starter the fact that you hear the click tells you that the starter solenoid is in fact working. Do check your connections for looseness or corrosion prior to starter replacement and fix as needed. Possibly has a dead spot on the starter that won't allow starter motor to turn even though the solenoid engages.

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?

sounds like it could be the starter solenoid. and keep in mind that just because the radio and lights work does not mean that there is enough amp/volts to engage the starter. try and jump start the car, if this works then you are in fact lacking battery power and it is time to get a new battery ( most car batteries don't last longer than 5 years -- so if you know how old the battery is you can figure it might be time or not ).

Car wont start


It is the battery - you must not have the cables securely placed on the terminals. The same thing happened to me a few months ago.

Central locking remote won't open car/car won't start


Sounds like a basic bad battery. Even though its not that old it can be bad....and probably under warranty. Immobilizer or starter will not cause that. Get the bat tested.
Only other thing is called a "parasitic draw". This is when something is drawing current from the battery when its supposed to be off. Usually this causes a totally dead battery, not a weak one like you have.
