Hyundai Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome!My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.
When this happens, does the engine crank over and not start or does it not crank over at all?
Thank you for that information.
You might just have a bad starter. This is what happens when the starter motor starts to go bad. It will work intermittantly like you are describing.
Have you checked for power to the starter when this happens? If not, this is your next step.
If there is no power to the starter when this happens, we will need to pull a wiring diagram of the starting circuit and check voltage at certain places in the starting circuit. The clutch switch could be at fault, the ignition switch or anything else in the starting circuit could be preventing the engine from cranking over.
If there is power to the starter when this happens, the starter is bad and will need to be replaced.
The starter can go bad in many different ways. Tempature is a huge factor in electronics and how electrical compnents work so it would make sense that it may only act up under "certain conditions". But that is why it is important to check for power at the starter when this occurs. This will rule out any wiring issue or anything in the starting circuit causing this problem.
