    I don't know where the coil is but it sounds like that's the only thing left.

There's a fuse for the igntion, if it's blown it would cut power to the coil, check to see if the coil is firing by putting the coil wire [ make sure the ciol wire is good, they are known to fail ] close to a grounded part of the car. if it's working, then it may be a bad rotor, if not it may be the coil.

It would be good to list what the vehicle is.

My mercedes e class 54 reg had power down my stereo I change the fuse power came back but it shows mute mode does not give any sound when my engineer put on his computer its works then mute again

Hands free mute is caused by a switch grounding the radio , if you have a hands free kit it is permanently grounding causing MUTE , if it's a short to ground check wiring loom in car always test loom with a multimeter

Why did the check engine and tcl"off"lights come on after cleaning the engine and engine compartment?

The traction control system uses the computer to work by changing engine speed.
You may have gotten water inside one of the wiring connectors or harness.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to know what to test.

hi from uk for your info there was a recall back in2004/5 for the getz relating to the abs system going faulty my wifes 2003 getz gsi was recalled and i took car to dealers for her to enquire what fault has there beenon some getz with abs system? as fault had not occured on ours ? apparently there had been a fault with the wire loom to pump particularly the earh cable deteriating ? so this loom had to be inspected and replaced under warranty however as i had waxoiled all underneath our getz including abs pump due to its location low down the loom was ok but was changed anyway and recorded and a dated sticker placed on cars glove compartment door inside to verify loom changed ? SO b4 you progress any further i would check with hyundai tech dept to whether you car had been inspected or whether slipped through unchecked ? your gran should have had a recall as we did for modified loom hope this helps?

No it wont. The wiring from the OBD port, to the ECM, is just remote wiring. Either the ECM is (broken, bad ground or bad power Connection) I can try to get you the wiring but you actually will need more then that. I'll get back to you asap.

Radiator fan not working

When you say you changed the fan sensors in the fuse box, did you mean the relay. If not check them they are usually mounted in the engine compartment next to the firewall.
