SOURCE: Car wont start after I fill the tank

I have seen this many times on Sonatas. The problem is likely to be your cars Purge Control Valve sticking open and allowing fuel vapor to be pushed into the engine while filling the car with gas. This valve is mounted near the intake manifold and has a vacuum line to the manifold and another that routes under the car to the vapor canister.

SOURCE: car alarm randomly goes off

there is a hood switch located at front passenger side under hood. check to make sure the plunger at hood is pushing the switch completely down. sometimes there may be just enough clearance that a strong wind will set the alarm off.

SOURCE: Why would a 2000 hyundai

The engine light came ON.Whenever the check engine light comes on then that is the indication of error codes stored in cars computer.In this case the car needs to be scanned at car diagnosis center to retrieve the codes.Once the error codes are received the exact faulty part can be replaced as per the codes./You can get the car scanned at your local car garage,if they do the diagnostic check for the care.But if there is no place near by your area to do the diagnostic check,then at www.autozone.con service center its absolutely free to get car scanned.And also at autozone they deal will car parts so you can get the parts replaced from autozone if required. ------------------ The check engine light ON means it can be any thing faulty /loose which is not getting detected by the cars computer.Every electrically controlled part in your car is controlled/detected by the computer.So if any of the part connection gets loose or that part itself gets faulty/short then computer will not see/detect that part and so this check engine light comes ON. ------------ This will help.Thanks.

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Sonata with 4

P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected.

Possible Causes:
- Improper spark plug at cylinder #1
- Insufficient compression at cylinder #1
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted at cylinder #1
- Fuel injector #1 may be faulty
- Intake air leak at cylinder

Possible Solutions:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replaced Spark Plug #1
- Replaced Injector #1
- Replaced Ignition Coil #1

Being you have a heavy gas smell I would look into the injectors. If injector #1 is over producing it can cause a misfire. Test your compression and fuel pressure.

Multiple problems with Hyundai Sonata : 1. Car does not start very often. 2. When it does I have an orange light on the dash showing a car with skid marks. 3.The shifter gets stuck in park sometimes.

on your a/c blowing warm air at stops it sounds like radaitor cooling fan not working, fan motor or fan relay most likly cause, light with skid marks sounds like anti=lock brake system problem, possible bad wheel speed sensor, on shifter getting stuck and engine not starting sounds like ignition switch going bad, hope this helps ?

2006 hyundai sonata died, we replaced the battery then the alternator and we still can't get it started. I isn't even making a sound as we turn the key

Does it have anti-'theft?. If so, try this. with the key in hand close the doors. Put the key in door lock cylinder. Then lock the car. wait a few seconds (10-15) then unlock the car. Open door and try to start vehicle. You may have to do it 2-3 times. Lock-unlock sequence.

2006 corolla- check engine light comes on. i replaced the battery (old) and i reconnect it, it runs fine for about a minute, no warning lights, then shuts off, check engine light is lit and will crank but...

Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.

Tail lights stay on

There is a switch that should shut these off when the front door is opened. Have the dealer fix under warranty.
