Hello and Thank you for using JustAnswer.com
Do you have a check engine light on when the engine is running?
just had that taken care of. I presume there will be more than this as an "answer"
I am trying to get a understanding on what is going on so I can give you some direction on what needs to be done
You had a Check engine light on?
they replaced crank sensor and pigtail...code was for knock sensor
The Knock Sensor will not cause a Check Engine Light.
The crank sensors almost never fail on these engines. Did you have a code for it? That can cause what your describing how ever.
I hope they didn't charge you a ton for the knock sensor. You don't need to remove the intake to replace them on your year I30. It can be replaced in about 30 mins.
Let me know, Thanks Jay!
i am just taking the word of the mechanic. I still don't know what is causing the idiot lights to come on and the car skip power momentarily. I suggested the battery connections but they were ok with a multimeter test
You say idiot lights, what lights are exactly coming on?
my son says the abs, battery and one other comes on
thanks will do
Sorry, I had the ACCEPT button turned off. It's on now. Thanks again for using JustAnswer.com
