Asked in Car Starting Problems, Car Batteries
Can a loose positive battery cable prevent the alternator from charging the batter and can it cause a battery drain while the engine is not running?
Yes, a loose battery cable will prevent the alternator from charging the battery. The drain on the battery is not caused by the engine not running unless an accessory is left on. Most likely, the drain is caused by accessories (radio, lights, etc) while the engine is running due to the battery not receiving its charge from the alternator and then not having enough charge left to start the engine.
How do you turn the headlights and running lights off while keeping the engine running?

Asked in Check Engine Light, Hyundai Accent, Lexus LS
Why does the check engine light come on when starting the engine of a 2002 Hyundai accent?
If it is just coming on while you start the car and then going off while the car is running, that is normal. If it is staying on after the car is running, it could be that the cap to your gas tank is not completely closed. The cap has to click atleast 3 times when you close it. I have had this problem on mine before.
