Check engine light is back on on a Hyundai Accent 2005
I bought my Hyundai Accent 2005 two months ago with a check engine light on. I took battery off and put it back on and it was gone for a week, but now it's back on. The clock was not working and now it works and it stops, on and off.. Please help me or tell me what to do.. Thanks all

Re: Check engine light is back on on a Hyundai Accent...
Most major automotive parts stores will read the check engine light codes for free. That will lead you into the direction of what needs to be repaired. Clock would most likely not be related to the check engine light..

would you describe the noise 1 metallic/scrapping, 2 slight roar ,3 squeal, 4 something else
1,loose drive belt pulleys, something may have dropped onto driven parts
2. loose or worn air intake hose , air filter box not secured
3. alternater etc drive belts , spray WD40 onto them when revving engine , if squeal goes check condition of belts
4. can you describe it
hope this gives you a starting point
all you did is remove it from the PCM memory ,if its a hard code it will be back, scan it if it comes back and find out what the code is ,then fix it not just erase it and disconnecting often can only lead to bad things happening , and bigger problems with computer ,that's called a no no
If you bring it to one of the local parts stores they will usually read the codes for free. Have them print it for you then post again with codes.Then we can give you some direction on what maybe wrong.
I am having the same problem with my car and I have no idea what to do my check engine light would flash and go away when I would pull through gears now it is stuck on but when I shift it blinks sometimes the tranny was just replaces a couple months ago..
Even though you replaced the sensor, and the light went out, the computer still retains the original codes until the codes are cleared using a scan tool. It's possible the computer has put the engine in a reduced power mode because the trouble codes haven't been cleared.
well the first thing you need to do is to pull the stored codes in the computer and see what they say and then go from there, this could be a speed sensor or a trany going bad , i dont know if this is an automatic or standard trany, start with the codes from the check engine light, autozone car parts store will scan the computer at no charge,
