2009 Hyundai Accent Repair Question
Engine fails to start after accident even though car has been repaired.
Thank you in advance for your help and input.
How long did the engine run after the damage?
On collision, the engine shut down immediately. After it was repaired we tried running it a maximum of 4 times. For less than 5 seconds on each attempt.
Okay... There are engine shut down sensors that are designed to stop fuel and spark to the engine in the event of an accident. Chances are it needs reset.
Thank you Jacob. Do I need to take my car to a licensed Hyundai mechanic to do the reset or is it something I can do myself?
If you are able to locate it, you could do it. However, they placed them in different locations, so I don't even know where to tell you to look. Contact a dealer and have your VIN available. Maybe they can look it up with the vin and tell you where yours is located.
Thank you for your time sir. We had speculated to the existence of these sensors before but failed to find them. They are tricky little things. We will try one last time before contacting the dealer.
glad to help.
