If a Hyundai Elantra stops running after an hour on a running speed temperature, it could be a bad thermostat. It is best to have a mechanic take a look at it to determine the exact cause.
it is probably the thermostat any one can change one on a Hyundai they cost under $15.00
im having the same problem with my 2000 elantra! after looking around on the internet im pretty confident its the crankshaft sensor.
Fuse for parking lights probably blown.
I just fixed this problem , it was my daytime running light module
Debris in the hoses or reservoir could cause the motor to overheat. Also, running the pump without fluid could do the same.
Just go to your local auto parts store, make sure to know your make model and year. Engine size won't hurt either all though i think Hyundai has been running the same engine for a while.
A bad camshaft position sensor will cause a engine to run very rough or not run at all. Replacing the camshaft sensor is very complicated.
The one with the wires running to the headlights :)
Well, the daytime running lights are on whenever the car is running and in gear. They're off when you have the headlights on. So, your service light Doesn't come on when the headlights are on?? If you switch the headlights between on and off (with the car running and in gear) does the service light follow?
i think, depending on the year, that problem is caused by a factory defect.
There are several kinds of malfunction lights on the dashboard of a Hyundai Elantra (and this is true on all Hyundai models). Some are comparatively minor, such as the one for "tire pressure is too low"-- and all it means is you should check the air in your tires at the nearest gas station. Or if the "check oil" light comes on, this means you are low on oil and any service station can put some oil in. Sometimes, especially when the car is new, a malfunction light called a "check engine light" may come on for no apparent reason. If the car is running fine, it could just means there's a problem with a sensor and the car's computer system needs to be re-set, which the dealer can take care of. But if the car suddenly is running rough, or it's barely running at all, the "check engine" light could indicate a more serious problem with the generator or the car's electrical system. You need to contact the dealer right away, and the service department can tell you what you should do. [Your Hyundai should have a manual that explains all the lights; if you don't have it, there are versions online.]
My best guess would be for the parking break. Easy way to test, when the car is running just pull the lever or step on the lever and see what light turns on
there is a pipe running along side of inner wing on the Drivers side this is the ac pipe, halfway along toward windscreen there is a valve on top of pipe usually with a green cap on it, that is where freon goes..
The computer has sensed a malfunction that is either performance or emmissions related. The engine may be running okay, but you need to have the ODBII scanned to see what the trouble code(s) is/are. The beauty of computers and check engine lights is that the system senses problems while they are at an early stage, therefore, you don't have to wait till the engine runs crappy before you realize there is a problem.
Headlights, And Any other application you have running (ex. Radio).
your headlights will burn out faster and could possibly blow a fuse, but you would go through headlights and a drastically increased rate if you use headlights when they are unneeded.
The switch may be broken, or there may be a wiring problem to the switch, causing a short that bypasses the control. Check the switch and the wires running to it.
Burning oil in the combustion chamber.AnswerNo worries, mine does the same thing. Just try switching to a thicker oil and check regularly.
Bad temperature sensor unit? Cooling fan not working? Water pump not circulating coolant? Radiator plugged or restricted? System airbound? Thermostat not opening?
It is important to know the symptoms of a bad car part. The symptoms of a coil going bad would be having a trouble starting and running the car, the coil getting hot, and poor fuel economy.
because the air condition is cooling the air! The colder air gets, the less water it can keep. So the water drips out of the box, where the air is cooled.
If the engine isn't running, the battery is low. If the engine is running, the alternator probably has a problem. If you are wearing dark sunglasses, remove them and the lights will get brighter. good luck!
Had the same problem. Found it to be a bad ground wire for the headlights. There are two ground wires for the headlights, both are directly below the battery. You can see one of them if you remove the drivers side headlight. It is right behind the radiator hose. The other is a few inches from that one.
