Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.
Does it have voltage to the starter when the key is turned?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Jerry, I don't know. The car is at a Hyundai dealership and they have failed to identify the problem for 2 days now. I can only assume that they checked that. Also, I failed to specify that it is a V6 if that makes any difference.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Also it has 109,000 miles on car and I bought it used 5 days ago
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 years ago.
So, the dealer is fixing it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They say they are trying but after 2 full days of working on it, no success. It is now the start of day 3 and I am losing confidence in them. I am afraid they are going to start replacing parts just to see if that "might" work and I cannot afford parts on a "maybe".
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have since found out that this particular dealership does not have a very good service record and their reviews are not very good.
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 years ago.
I know what you mean. I wish there was a way for me to know what the problem is.
I will opt out and open it back up. Please DON’T REPLY to this post as that will lock the question back to me, someone should be along shortly, I’m sure, thanks and sorry I wasn’t able to help with it.
