Asked by Jul 21, 2013 at 09:34 AM about the 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a hyundia tiburon and here lately the battery and brake light on the dash come on and stay on after the car is started then blink on and off then eventulally will go off. But also I have drove 3 different times and loose all power to electrical power-radio,dash light and gages on the dash while driving. I have had the battery and allternator tested and everything has came back good. I have taken the terminals off the battery and cleaned them aswell as the battery post to make sure it is getting a good connection. Now everythime i try to start the car it acts like it doesnt want to turn over. What do you think the problem is??

Have the alternator tested again at another shop or local auto parts store. Sounds like the voltage regulator in the distributor is faulty. Now you have a drained battery as well, that's why it won't start.
