Customer Question

We have a Hyundai Tuscon 2005, and it won't start, although the Radio works and the Guages light up and the Headlights work.
Could the Battery Terminals be corroded or loose, if that does not fix the problem then what?

What happens when you turn the key to the crank position to start the engine?

Nothing, not a sound at all, no clicking no nothing, but the Accessories all work!
Expert:  Amedee replied 9 months ago.

Thank you for that information. This problem is most likley caused by a bad starter motor. You will need to verify power down at the starter with the key in the CRANK or START position. If there is full battery voltage but the starter is not engaging, the starter motor is bad and will need to be replaced.

If there is no power to the starter, then you would have a bad nuetral switch, ignition switch or something else going on with the starting circuit. Just let me know and I can help walk you through this diagnosed.

I am glad I can help!
