1997 Hyundai Accent 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 238000 miles
In extreme cold, the car will start but the ignition fuse blows immediately. Replacing the fuse doesn't help and the problem only resolves when the temperature warms up. When this happened last winter, the circuits were tested and apparently showed no problems. Another mechanic suggested disconnecting the command start and our immobilizer alarm to avoid too much drain on the circuit. We did that last year and it seemed to help, but the problem has re-occurred this winter again. What could be blowing the fuse and why does this happen only in extreme cold temperatures?
