Question Asked: Why do I have to replace speed sensors and pulse generators so offen?
January 27, 2014, 09:28 AM
I have had to replace either my speed sensors or pulse generators every 1 1/2 to 2 years. Why am I blowing them? The mechanics have looked at the electrical harness and the computer and said I could replace them but with over 146,000 miles-it is easier to keep replacing the sensors and generators. Is there a recall on this problem through either the government or Hyundai? I have heard from others that the problem might possibly be Over Drive is shorting out or shift solenoid etc. Apparently a big problem with this year.
Car Review: 2002 Hyundai Accent

I bought my 2002 Accent GL 1.6 DOHC A/T and have had no real problems until the speed sensors and pulse generators have gone out. I have replaced them several different times and still every 1- 1/2 to 2 years the problem occurs again. Even now I have to make an appointment to fix them again. Basically the car doesn't want to shift right. The first time it happened was driving 65 miles an hour and had a huge clunking noise--now it is not wanting to shift out of 1st gear or shift at all. The rpms go up but it doesn't shift. I started having problems more when I turned on A/C 4 to 5 years ago. The mechanics have told me I could replace the computer or electrical harness but not sure if it would fix my cars problems. It is easier and cheaper to just repair sensors, could they be shorting out of something else? Anyone else having problems like this? The only other problem I have had is that the radio/cd player has shorted out-I get error codes Err 01 or Err 02, still works unless you hit a bump and it switches between radio and cd player. Mileage was very good highway but city driving sucked.
