Asked by Nov 21, 2016 at 05:16 PM about the 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2.7 that was having starter problems.  I
would get dash lights and radio etc. but no mechanical sound when starting.  I
replaced the starter and the transmission switch, was okay for a couple weeks
but the problem has returned?  Battery's about 4 years old but I don't see any
dimming or any other obvious battery issues?

Check battery voltage to make sure it's ok. Should be minimum 12.4vdc. Check all battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight. If everything looks good, there's a small wire on the starter that has a connector, make sure it's not burnt. If it's ok and not starting. Check to see if you get voltage when you try to start it If voltage is present, replace starter. If no voltage present when you try to start it, trace back to starter relay and ignition switch
