Car turns over but won't start


Asked by Jul 22, 2016 at 11:35 AM about the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need some diagnosis help. My daughter
has a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon that she just
bought. Recently she has come out of
work to find it won't start. She has been
able to get it going by jumping it off.
However I just noticed that the car turns
over fine, thus not a battery issue. What
will cause one to start when jumped that is
turning over fine? Any help will be greatly

weak battery. What is the voltage?

It doesn't sound weak... it turns over fine, not slow or anything. Could it be something else?

I agree with Tom. Have the battery load tested to be sure. On some newer vehicles the computer won't allow the vehicle to start if battery voltage is below a certain point. You may not notice the difference but the computer does. HTH. -Jim


Thanks guys! I'll do that and see how it goes. Read some old posts and will also check all the cables and grounds for corrosion, wear and a good ground connection. Will post what I find.


Sounds pretty standard.battery alt/when car starts check gauges
