    Default 2000 Hyundai Elantra Wonít Start - Seems Completely Dead

    I am having a rather large problem with my Elantra. I already know my
    alternator is bad but that isnít why Iím posting this here. I took the
    battery out of my momís Accent to put it in my Elantra because my
    battery is dead and when I did this I noticed my problem.

    When I put the battery in the Elantra the stereo, dome light, dash
    lights, even the fuel gauge went back up from empty. Basicly
    everything is in working condition except the engine. Go figure.

    When I try to turn the key over to start the car, I get nothing from
    it. Completely dead; no clicks, no thuds, no sound at all, just the
    check engine light on the dash.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Iím completely clueless...
    Thanks in advance, Dan.

    It is possible to have a bad connection that will allow the lights to work,
    but not the big draw of the starter. Check the battery cables and ground
    connection, as well as the cable tot he starter or solenoid.

    Check all your underhood and passenger compartment fuses. It's possible
    something is blown.

    There may be a small fuse box that bolts onto the positive cable.
    Hopefully, you didn't leave it laying on the transmission.

    Well that would certainly make it a lot simpler to fix... I hope it is
    something as simple as a fuse. I did locate a fuse box under the hood
    that sits right on top of the front driver-side wheel well. There are
    an abundance of fuses in this box and one of them is a 20 amp starter
    fuse. Iím gonna try to replace the fuse but I have an itching feeling
    that it is something worse...

    I have know batteries and terminals to be fickle. I have had a
    situaution when my battery was not charged up but there is ennough
    power to fire up the instrument panel and even the horn but not enough
    to give any life when trying to start it up. I had to use my road side
    assistance service and was embarrassed when the mechanic just gave it a
    jump start from his battery and it fired up. It was a combination of
    the battery being nearly flat and dirty terminals that caused the
    problem. Hope it helps

    Turns out I have to replace the relay for the starter, not the fuse. I
    looked everywhere for this thing and it took me forever but I finally
    found one. I managed to find a complete underhood fuse/relay
    compartment with all fuses and relays included. I donít think Iím
    gonna use the whole thing but it will come in handy to have
    replacements for everything under the hood like that.

    They will probably be here on wednesday or thursday. Iíll let you guys
    know how it goes.

    Ok I figured out that it was in fact the starter relay. I replaced the
    starter relay and the car started up fine.
