Car won't start

Asked by Mar 15, 2017 at 11:41 PM about the 2006 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2006 Hyundai sonata won't start. I turn the key
and all the lights and radio come on but it clicks
one time and won't start. I replaced the battery, but
it still won't start. Any suggestions are helpful.

Check all Battery terminals & terminal wires, connections to starter and frame grounds and check them for if tight and corrosion may have to peel some of the wire insulation back some. Check starter. Check grounds to frame from engine.

Make sure u have minimum 12.4 vdc on the battery, check for loose or corroded battery cables. If everything checks out good, check voltage signal to small wire on starter solenoid as you try to start it. If there's voltage and still no start, replace starter

Had the same problem. Ended up switching the 50 amp fuse marked starter (under the hood) with the one next to it (same 50 amp fuse) and it solved the problem. Switched them back and car still started. Go figure.
