2013 hyundai elantra wont start after its been in an accident. The engine cranks ND THE IMMOBILIZER LIGHT IS ON ON THE DASH


Hi dianne
I am not sure if your Hyundai is equipped with fuel safety switch witch will stop the fuel pump in case of an accident,
still worth to have a look at the engine bay near the balk, left and right sides, and inside the car on the A pillars, left and right.
it is a black box with red button at the top, you have to press on the red top in order to reset it

Charging system problems


no year stated, nor miles, nor if in the Salt belt (winter salted roads)
the dim dont lie. that is the mark of excessive of resistance.
the Head lights, dim , key off. turning them on>? when key on
heater fan , now dim,,,(got resistance)
the starter uses 100 amp, so is 10times more (at least)
if you'd had a cheap voltmeter (even 5 decades old) it had found this.

working DMM free, (dig, multi meter) makes this hard.
you will have to inspect every wire and end of every wire.
if the HL fail , ALWAYs trouble shoot that failure first.
walfart has a 10buck meter or DMM.

ill shows you the HL fix.
I turn on HL (head lights) and they are dim or dim with heater fan on.
i check battery voltage (across terms)
12v good, less bad. (not charged or bad battery)
with all loads off the battery reads 12.6v, in a warm area.
since i dont know you location or ambient temperature i can give
exact readings (and can !)
this test passes. so i connect my 2 meter leads
one to battery lug plus and other black lead to car body metal
(not engine , the body)
0.5vdc max, with HL on. if higher your body to battery ground is bad.
test 3 : this is not in random order at all..'

DMM black lead to body ground. all below checks.
(1990-1997) real Geo's dates. i only have corolla drawings,
if gm /geo didnt butcher the harness...then.....
there an engine bay fuse box. see it?
I then move my test leads as follows. (all with HL on)
the HL is on , to put a load on the system this technique, finds
weak resistive connections.

all comments for a 1996 (my wild guess) (black on body , HL on)
1: red lead to main fuse box. (this car really is a Corolla)
probe all lugs on the main fuse box, 12v it must be or you
have corrosion resistance, at any lug that is below 12v.
when we find a low reading we trace backwards to the battery
to find it. (using the meter)

between the battery plus and eng.bay box, is a FL main fuse.
"fuse link = FL"
this fuse runs the head lights directly and then goes to the main
eng.bay fuse box and runs the whole car. 100a fuse and 40 amp there
some cars have DRL (daylight running lights do you?)
by now the node (lug, terminal or pin) tha t reads low has been found
and you are posting back with year, and where it reads low.
in fact, the meter will take you to the bad spot and once found
you look at thAt part and its all green and ugly, bingo.

i posted this , instead of wild guess.

95 jaquar van dan plas......fuse boxes


Hi, there are 5 main fuse boxes on the vehicle.
One is located next to the battery in the trunk
One is located on top of the passenger fender in the engine bay
One is located on top of the drivers fender in the engine bay
and there are 2 in the heel boards below the rear seats (behind a carpeted panel)
In the engine bay on the right side you should have a compartment for tools, on the inside of that compartment there should be a fuse indentification diagram.
Thanks and good luck...
Also if you dash backlights do not work, its more and likely the dimmer switch that has failed which is located on the left side of the steering column shroud next to the column movement switch.

Where is the power steering fluid unit found?


It is actually on the passengers side near the engine wall the pump and reservoir are made as one You will need a flash light follow the drive belt down past the alternator to the powersteering pump look for a black lid with a yellow steering wheel on top. The whole steering system takes only 3/4 quart of dextron automatic transmission fluid so do not over fill.
