Why do I not have no power still ? Is a relay bad too .? Or something elsa

Restarted and then shut off again. Everything was then shut down and hasn't done it since. What could it have been?

Just pulled into the driveway and turned off the ignition after being on the road for about 1/2 hour. After getting out of the vehicle I heard some type of fan, still in operation. I immediately turned the vehicle on again and then shut it down within a minute or two. The fan was no longer running. What could it possibly be? NEVER happened before. Vehicle has 54K and was recently in for a Hyundai warranty for an electrical issue. Thanking you in advance........ Joe

Ran smooth up until starting it last Friday. Sudden onset. I'm thinking fuel filter? Spark plugs?

That voltage was with battery charger connected. Any Ideas as to what could cause this? The light going out when started indicates it should be charging.

I am considering a used 2004 santa fe 2.7L 126k mi hear a belt squeaking -does this engine use a timing belt or chain and how tough a job is it to do?

My mom is selling me her 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe for 5000$ it had a cracked frame cracked windshield needs new tires plus has to pass inspection etc. is it worth it or should I get another car?

Problem happened yesterday car has been driving fine the oil and transmission fluid is fine still starts but sound rough

I have read there are numerous sensor's on the Santa Fe, wheel sensor, input, output and another one I believe, so which one should I check and where is that sensor located?

2 months ago my timing belt broke and the shop said it bent my heads and pistons they said it would be cheaper to buy a new car but I love my car and its in perfect condition other than the motor

Battery was replaced. Problem still exists. Mechanic says I have to wait for complete failure to check if the starter is at fault. Fails to start on cold mornings after sitting all night.

my 2013 Santa Fe has 21,000 miles on it and at least 15,000 are from the 6 trips down to Florida so most of the miles are highway miles. I have been told I need new rotors and new pads before the weather turns .Anyone have a clue why they wore so fast or a similar problem. Every other new car i've bought had to have pads replaced several times before the rotors finally wore done enough to need replaced.

My cousin seems to think that the door that won't stay open has to do with the electric system. when I use the alarm lock

I just bought my 2005 Santa Fe 3.5 V6 2 wheel drive and the guy I bought it from (he buys cars at auctions and fixes and sells them) said his mechanic put a shift kit in and said should have a tune up. I asked my mechanic and he said a tune up is going to cost close to $1K. You have got to be kidding me???

what else could I check?

This is the 1.7 liter engine and the marks got away from me.

Thanks

Took 2005 Santa Fe, 151,000 miles, in for timing belt replacement, water pump and serpentine belt and, A/C compressor replacement, $2,454.00. Mechanic broke motor mount and expects me to paid for this too. Is this normal/expected?

The release cable for my model is on the door and it has stopped working. How much would the repair cost and how long would it take?

I just got some work done on my car. They fixed strut mounts and AC. When driving home the other day, (I had AC, radio and lights on) the engine cut out between gears. It's not gear specific, it happened between 1st and 2nd, 2nd and 3rd, and 3rd and 4th. Only happens with AC blowing. No idea what it could be... With everything cutting like that it leads me to believe it's something electrical. Had a shop check alternator, putting out 13v (little low, but not worrisome). Any ideas? Here is a video of it happening... (delete spaces between dashes.

So I have brought my car to the shop a few times now. First my car was stalling out when I would idle. My mechanic just put an additive in and said it was fine. Then it completely died on the highway. They replaced the crankshaft. Then my car decided it wasn't going to pick up speed at all and I found out that the catalytic converter was clogged (probably from the additive) so I got that fixed. Now when I drive it takes longer then normal to speed up. My car is an automatic but it's feels like I'm badly driving a manual. It will rev up between 3 and 5 depending on how fast I'm going then after a few minutes will drop down under 2. Any ideas?
