2007 Elantra, starting problem

2007 Elantra, when i turn the key the entire dash comes on but the car doesnt turn over, it just hums.. if i giggle things and move the gear shift it eventually starts. any ideas why this is a problem?

(there is also an interesting noise when im driving around where it suddenly sounds like i hit something.. like a pop under the car)

Just getting thoughts, taking it in to the dealership to see if they can figure out why its doing this, but if it doesn't do the problem there its hard for them to analyze it :(

    A similar problem ... my 2007 Elantra was working fine until 8/31/08. Then, for some unexplained reason it just wouldn't start. Triple A came out and jump started it and it was fine a few weeks and then tonight again it just wouldn't start ... in my case the entire electrical system seems to "go dark." The mechanic who comes out from Triple A (same guy both times) says he "sees this a lot in 2007 Elantras" and wouldn't be surprised to see a recall in the near future. For me it is off to my nearest Hyundai dealership in the morning ...

    My key gets stuck. I had been driving it for 18 months when the key wouldn't come out of the ignition. The dealership demanded it be re-created and wondered if I knew how to take the key out. Luckily it happened during maintenance and they saw the problem. They supposedly replaced parts for the ignition but it still occurs. It is an intermittent problem where it sometimes get stuck. I hope the criminals don't notice it.

It seems like bad or loose wire connection at starting electrical circuit.
Check also fuse, ignition switch, neutral switch,
Have your car inspected at a dealer or a garage as soon as you can - it might be unsafe to drive.

We got a recall on the fuel pump for '07 Elantras. I took mine in for an oil change yesterday, Oct. 2 2008. They replaced the fuel pump in under 2 hrs. I got back in the car though and the mechanics made a mess out of my back seat. Apparently they need to remove the seat to get to the fuel pump. They got grease everywhere, but they told me to bring it back today to get it cleaned for free. And I'm going to stand there and watch them. So watch your seats when they do this recall.

2007 tahoe will not start. started this morning and now nothing. turn key on and everything works. a message comes across dash and says service air bag. will not turn over.

if there is a fault with the air bag the car wont start as a safety precaution so it doesnt go off while your driving i think you have no choice but to have an auto electrician or service guy look at it and get it fixed. sorry to be the messenger of bad news.

Battery is fully charged lights come on but power to dash and turning the key wont turn the engine over. not clicks no sound car intidacator lights come on along with the ding ding when the door is open....

Probably your security system or the safety interlock. If the security light is not on, try giggling the shifter or starting in neutral.

Please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

I started my 92' Geo Tracker and started down my drive way when it just cut off. Now it will not start back, it is getting fire to the distributor cap,is full of gas and wil turn over but not start! Please...

Is the fuel pump running? When you turn the key to the run position (the dash lights come on), you should hear a humming sound coming from the gas tank for a few seconds. Thats the fuel pump running to pressurize the system before starting. It's kind of hard to hear, so get a friend to sit in the car while you lay on the ground near the gas tank. Have them turn on the key and listen. No hum means the fuel pump isnt working.

I bought a used 2007 Hyundai Elantra recently (my first ever car) from a private owner. When I key-in I see the battery & fluid lights on on the dashboard. Is that normal?

Most cars when you turn the ignition key on(not all the way to start) lights come on to tell you the bulbs are working and not burnt out.After you start the engine the warning lights go out or if the don't there is a problem with that device.Good Luck.

while trying to turn the key, try to wiggle the steering wheel. sometimes, the lock to the steering wheel is preventing the key to turn.
