Car won't do anything when you try to start it, happens intermittently, not always.
Hyundai starting problem-simply no action on the ignition switch but power to all other systems appears fine. Replaced electrical and mechanical side of ignition switch. Also tore apart and tested all of starter and bought a new battery. Took to a Hyundai dealership mechanic and they did not have any ideas on problem. We thought perhaps replacing the key cylinder would finally fix the problem but it appears it not as the problem is starting to occur again. Not sure what to try next????
...at this point am going to have to recommend that you get a copy of the schematic, a set of wire piercers for testing the wires, both when the problem is occuring and when it's not occurring...with the piercers, you don't have to disconnect anything, makin testing a jif-
theirs a reley for that you know,may have dirty points in relay
Jim. dig deeper clue us one or two~
My guess is the starter is being starved of enough amperage. It may, like the rest of the cars electric system be getting some amps along with 12volts, but not enough "juice". If the starter itself has a marginal ground I.e. loose bolts or even a oily mounting flange, it won't allow the current to go through the system.
bobby you know you could write a book on possibles,and create confusion,look at the simple first! and move thrue
Could it be worn cylinders in the ignition switch?
any updates on this problem? my 2013 sonata is doing the same thing
Our 2006 Sonata is doing the same thing. It will start without issue for weeks, then it will take 20 mins of turning the key to get it to start for a week. All electrical works during the non starts and all fuses and relays are good. Was going to replace the starter but have seen too many on here throwing parts at the problem with no resolution. Will never purchase another Hyundai.
The ignition lock cylinder and the ignition lock cylinder housing Likely the solution. My total cost with labor was $653.09. On 3/13/2012 at 11:08:11 A.M, under Hyundai case 4758349 (established while this vehicle was within warranty) .My headlights, bright beams, radio and clock simultaneous become disabled and any attempt in the normal course of operating this vehicle to shift the car between park and drive causes a loud grinding noise. This issue corrected itself after another grinding noise when shifting the gear lever into park and the car began functioning normally. At some point out of warranty the vehicle wouldn't start from the ignition. After replacing The ignition lock cylinder and the ignition lock cylinder housing the issues are solved
