2005 Hyundai Santa Fe ProblemsEngine May Stall or Fail to Start Due to a Failed Crankshaft Position Sensor
The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.
On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.
2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Questionswas running fine yesterday and wont start today.the car makes no noise. (1 answer)
yesterday started and ran just fine. this morning it want start . when you turn the key you get nothing no crank no start no noise of any kind. I check the battery it fine. dash lights come on and the interior light is very bright and so are the head lights. Please help if you can. Thank you
the sound is inconsistent so I know it is not a belt. It happens when the steering will is turned at slow speeds and comes on usually at stop lights or when I am at a low speed. I also replaced both belts on the vehicle. I put a new pulley on when the power steering pump was installed.
I turned on my AC and it works great in High Speed. On the lower speeds I have to hold it or wiggle the switch around to get it to work. Once I let go it stops again. but only on the lower selections.
2005 Hyundai Santa Fe RecallsFront Coil Springs May Break Due To Corrosion
The front coil springs may corrode and break, which can result in front tire damage and loss of vehicle control. This is most likely in areas where road salt is used. Dealers will inspect and replace affected coil springs as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The occupant classification system (OCS) may detect a small child on the front edge of the front seat as an adult. If the passenger front air bag deploys in a crash, serious injury or death could occur. Dealers will verify the vehicle's OCS properly classifies a passenger front seat occupant properly and disable the air bags when necessary. Dealers will also reprogram the vehicle's OCS ECU to provide an increased margin for recognition of small children.
