2001 Hyundai Accent won't turn Over Sign In

Hello! My son's 2001 Hyundai Accent won't turn over. I jumped it - same results - nothing. Directionals work at proper speed without slowing down. Turn the key and silence. We replaced valve cover gasket yesterday. Vacuum lines seem hooked up correctly and drove it yesterday after wards and today Could problem still be battery? I was suspecting starter or starter solenoid, if it has one. Any help appreciated!

It's a 4 cyl, 1.6 liter engine. Sorry

You're not going to know until you test it. Try jumping power to the trigger wire at the starter to test it once you know you have a good battery.

Thanx! Is starter under car? Which wire would be trigger wire? Do I connect positive cable to it and simply ground the negative cable? I remember old starters had a post that the positive wire went to.

It has a small wire going to the starter that when energized with 12v, it triggers the starter.

Hey Hammer Time, Where in God's name is the starter on this car? I've looked at a few schematics and don't see how it can be where they say it is. I'm looking on the top, driver's side toward the fire wall. I can't find any videos of the starter being removed for this model. Are there any sites where I can see diagrams of this. Thanx!

It's on th back side of the engine and probably will have to be accessed from below. At least one of the bolts is likely accessed from above though.

OMG, what a pain in the ars that was! Every starter I've ever replaced was right smack underneath in clear view. I couldn't even see all of this starter when I was under it. And I now have so many cuts and scratches on my arms, from trying to reach up thru from the bottom, that it looks like I got in a fight with an alley cat. LOL!

Anywho, mission accomplished! The short, thick wire going from a starter terminal back to the body , or into it, was broke in half. My son had to go to work so, he missed out on all the fun. :(

Thanks Hammer Time!

LOL ............... welcome to our world. That is actually not one of the hard ones. The flat rate time is just over half an hour.

Be thankful you don't have a Cadillac where the starter is under the intake manifold.

Re: 2001 Hyundai Accent won't turn Over Sign In

It is kind of weird, but of all the Northstars I worked on, i've never had to replace a starter. You would think with all the heat of being under the intake the starters would have a high failure rate.
