Question about 1996 Hyundai Accent

The car wont start and the energy from tht battery is consumed even if the car is off. I check the car and the following were noted, verytime when the relay fuse is inserted, it sparks and and breaks, and the motor for wipers is overheating. It seems there was a leak from the water flowing from the wiper system into the motor. I have detached the connection switch of the wiper motor but still the car wont start. How can you help me with this problem

Thanks for choosing FixYa and wel'come to the site. If you have a vehicle that will turn over and over but will not start, I will tell you some things that you need to check. Every vehicle needs air, fuel, and fire to start. Now, the first thing you want to check is the fuel system. You want to make sure that the engine is getting fuel. The easiest way to test the fuel system is by testing the fuel pressure on the fuel rail. You need to refer to your owner manual for the correct measurement of pressure. Another easy test is using starter fluid. If it starts when you spray the fluid, you have a fuel issue. If it doesn't, check the ignition system. If your pressure is not correct or you have no way of testing the fuel pressure, start by checking your fuel pump. The fuel pump pumps fuel out of the gas tank and to your fuel filter. When you first turn your key on, you should be able to hear the fuel pump kick on for a second or two. It makes a soft buzzing sound. Listen for this sound. This will determine if the pump is kicking on and working. If you don't hear this sound, check your fuel pump fuse, relay, and your reset button. Not all vehicles have a reset button, so once again check to see if you have this button. If you change all of these and the pump still doesn't work, you may have a bad fuel pump. Test and make sure the pump is getting power before you change it. Now, you want to make sure the fuel filter is not stopped up. Check the gas lines and make sure they have no damage. Lastly, make sure fuel is getting to the fuel injectors. If you are getting fuel, you will need to make sure you are getting fire. You need to test your spark plugs or coils for spark. If you have spark, you should look over your timing belt or timing chain to make sure it is not broken or slipping. If you are not getting spark, you will need to check the spark plugs, coils, coil packs, wires, distributor, distributor cap, and rotor. Anyone of these can cause a vehicle to not spark. Check everything you can. Make sure the rotor is spinning and make sure the distributor cap has all metal contacts. Also, make sure the cap is not damaged or cracked. Make sure none of the plug/coil wires are damaged. Make sure they are all hooked up correctly. Now, it is possible that you could have a bad camshaft sensor or crankshaft sensor. In some vehicles, the camshaft sensor is built into the distributor. You want to test each of these parts and make sure each one is getting power. If a part is not getting power, that may be the reason your vehicle is not starting. If you have a check engine light on, you need to get your computer scanned for error codes. More then likely, if your vehicle won't start, your check engine light is on. The light is on because your computer has detected a problem with the vehicle. You can buy a cheap code reader for around forty dollars from Autozone or Advanced. Just make sure you know all your codes for your vehicle. When you have it scanned, the computer may know the exact parts you need to change. Most of these parts listed run off your ECM. The ignition system is a very complex system. It is rarely, but they do go bad. If you believe that the computer is to blame, make sure you have it flashed before you put it in your vehicle. If you don't, it will not work. Finding your error codes is the best way to finding your solution. If not, you will have many things to check. Always make sure you run a test on a part before changing it. Make sure that part is getting power. If it is not, check the power source. I know this is a lot of information, but any of the parts listed can cause the vehicle to not start. If you have no access to a code reader, fuel pressure tester, or a code reader, you can still check a lot of things. It is just harder. Remember, always use the process of elimination. Determine if the part is working or not and move on to the next part. You will eventually find your problem. Lastly, electrical problems can cause the symptoms you are having. They are very hard to find. When trying to find an electrical problem, you need to make sure you know what to test for. Each wire has a purpose. One part of the engine can shut down another part. You need to know how many volts you are testing for on each wire. You can use a voltage meter to test for current.

2004 ford taurus ses turns over barley one short time,makes no noise when ya turn it over.Battery is full charge,lights are bright and dont dim when ya turn key


I don't think any of the previous answers came from a qualified technician. heres the deal: starting the car has nothing to do with the headlights, it cant be a bad fuse because like you said it turns over once, the alternator has nothing to do with the starting of the car, and fuel pump wont keep the car from turning over.
follow these steps in order
FIRST, take your battery to an auto parts store and have it checked, even if it shows a full charge it can still be bad.
if the battery test good, clean both battery terminals well. starting the car requires a lot more energy from your battery then the headlights, so even with bright lights there could still be an issue with the terminals.
if the car still wont start, check the battery cable itself for corrosion, if corrosions present replace the cable.
next check the ground wire from the battery to the frame of the car. make sure it has a clean connection on the frame.
if these are good and still wont turn over, then replace the starter.

you need to check battery supply most important. if the battery low voltage, cause no start. if the battery ok & strong energy. maybe the drive away protection control if this is the problem you need to bring to BMW dealer to replace control & ENCODE the control unit using SSS.

Your battery drain is due to the vehicle not able to enter sleep mode.A energy diagnosis must be performed,and you have to make sure you have the latest software installed.

You need to replace the battery. Even though the lights work, the battery is dead and cannot produce the energy needed to start the vehicle.

This sounds like either the fuel pump has failed or the fuel filter is plugged, another thing that can cause this is a plugged catalytic converter, i doubt the issue is the fuel pump relay.

Van wont start


I had a similiar problem recently. The car would not start and no sign of life no lights etc. I jump started it acouple of times but then even this did not work. It would jump start but right after the cables are disconnected it would stop. We checked the battery it was good. Turned out it was the alternator. It was not working properley so the system was not charging itself or even when it starts was not generating enough energy to keep it going. Changed the alternator, never had the same problem again. You can have your battery and alternator checked at an autozone shop for free.
