Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
Our 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe has stalled 5 times while driving. Each time it has occured - total power is lost, no steering or brakes. It has happened when slowing down. No error codes and the dealer can not find a problem.
I had a similar problem with my Santa Fe. It occurred intermittently but after I turned the steering wheel to the left. After much screwing around by the dealer and trying to baffle me with BS we heard about a strange solution. I am not a mechanic but the problem somehow related to a spring in the Airbag on the steering wheel. Changed the spring and "Stone the flame'n crows" problem solved. Never had a problem since.

My 2012 santa fe has stalled numerous times since November 2012. The throttle body was replaced twice (cause it kept going into limp mode as well). Now it just stalls without notice. The dealership is stumped. Always starts right away without difficulty.

My 2012 Santa Fe has stalled about 8 times. I took it in and they found a loose wire the first time but it continued to stall. Now I towed it to the dealer and they are replacing the throttle body and one other part. Not sure I will ever feel safe in that car. Janet

I had a problem with my 2013 Santa Fe Sport. Probably not your problem but be sure that you do not have your foot on the brake when you accelerate. There is a lock out so you cannot accelerate when your foot is on the brake.

Problem with the dealer is they will pay flat rate to technicians. They drive it for 1/2 hour and then say can't duplicate the concern. If it has happened only 5 times how many miles were put on it between each occurance? Have any codes been stored? Sounds like an idle air adjustment issue as when the engine slows it is not correcting the idle speed. You need to find a technician who will put gauges on fuel system and scope ignition while driving.

Did some research and found quite a few people with the same problem. All solutions were the same. Replace the Purge Control Valve, Hyundai part number 28910-22040. It is covered under warranty.

more than likely the crank sensor is the fix. once the engine cools down the sensor also cools .
if you could take it out right away and shoot freon on it and put it back in it would start wright up.
