1996 Hyundai Accent stopping

I was at a stoplight, then all of a sudden my '96 Hyundai Accent died - right before it died, the radio stopped working, then the blinker lights stopped, then the emergency blinkers wouldn't come on. After about half an hour it started again, but then after driving it about 5 minutes, it stalled all over again with the same thing happening. Could it be the alternator or battery?

The same thing happened to me yesterdag on my hyundai accent 1.5 SOHC (2000). I was driving 130Km/h and suddenly the ignition failed. When restarting everything looked fine. A few weeks ago the engine wouldn't start, it cranks but doesn't start. I replaced spark plugs/wires.

I noticed the following, the second most left warninglight with "key-symbol" didn't light up when trying to start. after disconnecting the battery cabel (+), en after 15 minutes reconnecting it. The problem dissapeared. To me it seems the problem is the Immobilizer. (i'm not sure if this is the right name for it in english, it's called "Startonderbreker" in Dutch.)

Hope this will help.

hello, if you car stalls instanly maybe your ignition system has a loose connection or even has a short somewhere. but if it coughing but still trying to idle normally maybe your carb dirty. one thing, some carbs has a solenoid air switch attached on one of its side. if this solenoid is shorted damaged you'll have the same effect. hope this helps.
