Having problems with your Hyundai Motor 2003 Elantra ?
2003 Hyundai Elantra won't start !!!
\015 When I place the key into the ignition all the dashboard lights turn on and the sounds chime as well; as I try to turn the car on I get nothing, no sound at all! The dashboard lights are still on. My car is a manual transmission so I have to press down on the clutch pedal to start it. I had the car 'jumped' and it still didn't turn on. The only way I can get it started is by 'push start'. I 'pop' the clutch in 2nd gear. When I'm driving, the car is fine. It doesn't die out on me. I figure it's the starter that is bad. Is it the 'starter' or the 'starter solenoid'? Any thoughts anyone?\015
Could be a problem with the clutch pedal switch. I'd have a look under the dash first to make sure no wires have been knocked of the pedal switch. If there's no sound, not even a clunking sound it may be the solenoid. I'd first want to eliminate the pedal wiring. Remove the small wire on the starter (most likely a spade type terminal) and using a piece of insulaated wire attach it to the starter where you removed the spade. Flick the other end of the wire on the positive of the battery. If the starter operates your looking at the pedal switch/ relay fault. If not its the starter. MAKE SURE CAR IS IN NEUTRAL BEFORE TRYING THIS. Ignition switched off. That way it will crank but not start.
