Question about Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

I own a 2003 tiburon, I have just recently been having problems with it. Where to start, my air bag light will not shut off and i have taken it in and the repair shop said no codes were coming up as to why it would not shut off. my E break light and ABS light have started coming on after the car is warmed up and only shut off if i turn heat on high or come to a stop. Today i was driving down the road and my car started grinding gears and all the gauges shut off and come back on. after i shut the car off it will not start again and needs a jump. 8 months ago we had a problem with the alternator and so it was replaced. the battery was replaced along with it. Other problems include a massive amount of exhaust coming out when the car first turns on. Ive tried changing the oil and checking all my other fluids. It seems that the excess exhaust is at the most when my oil is full but as its approaching time to change it the extra exhaust lessens. My car is at 121,000 miles and i am just unsure where to even start because these problems are so different from eachother. Any advice would be welcome

I recently replaced the clutch in my 2003 Hyundai Tiburon after doing so my car will not go into first or second gear but is able to go into all other gears. Could you please help me with this problem


Sounds like the new clutch was not lined up properly before refitting! If it was done at a garage return it to have the clutch taken out and refitted properly by them! Or did you do it yourself?

IS it a stick or auto shift?. If it an auto shift it sounds like a bad map sensor. It is mounted in the air intake system. Any check engine light when this happens?

Same as above....plus more


Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

Air Bag/Seat Belt lights are on


Exact same problem. Cost to replace seatbelt latch is $215 total. Called Hyundai and they said nothing could be done because my car was manufactured after the dates affected by the recall.
