Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It can be a bad starter. If the starter is failing it tends not kick on a series of start. I strongly suggest that you prepare for a replacement soon. This may break in any given time.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Runs dies

Security has been activated. Do a relearn. You have to have it on a battery charger as it takes about 30 minutes to do. Relearn is= turn the key on (don't start) for ten minutes. Turn it of for 30 seconds. Do this three times. After the third time it should have learn the new key. And will start. If you mess up at any time, you will have to start over from the beginning.

I have a Hyundai Trajet 2002 Gasoline. I have a problem with keeping the engine alive.

The engine is running very rich that is why the exhaust is emitting black smoke. The engine needs a tune up so the air fuel mixture is correct.

Put a new lock switch in securty light is on does not start

With a new switch comes a new key. Gm has a relearn procedure. You must do this 3 times. Turn the key on, engine off, wait ten minutes, turn the key off for 5 seconds. After the third time start the car. remember to turn the key off after the third time or you will have to start over. just a note , if you have daytime running lights , pull the fuse or relay to save the battery. It would be marked DRL
