I have a 2002 hyundai accent that has a good battery, the car turns over fine, but it won't fire. I took a plug wire off, and it dosen't have any spark. It was raining yesterday and the car died as I was pulling into a parking space. The car started up about 30minutes later and ran for about 3 minutes and died again. There are other post on here with the exact same problem, but it never said what fixed it. I have power going into the coil pack(i tested with a test light), but no power coming out. I'm not sure if it is a crank sensor, or both coil packs. A lot of people with the same problem replaced crank sensor and the problem still happened. And to me I don't see both coil packs going bad at the exact same time. PLEASE HELP, Thanks T.J.

I would say the most likely cause is bad coil packs. But due to the fact that the computer isn't giving a code, it may be your ECU. Try testing the coils. You will need a OHM meter to check the resistance between the primary and secondary sides of the coil. With the coil unplugged the resistance between the primary pins (pins are on the coil under the connector you will unplug) should be very low (less then 10 Ohms, you will have to look up exact specs, or call the dealer). If it reads high or open, your coil is bad. From the pins to the spark plug terminal wire should be very high, out of limmits or read infinate. If the reading is low (under 10K Ohms) the coil is shorted and bad. last test is, check between spark plug wire terminal and ground. It should read very high or open. if it doesn't, the coil is bad. Again, I don't know the exact specs. You will have to look them up. Good luck

thank's for your response and i'll check that. I've been messing around with it all morning long. I put a new crank sensor on this vehicle and that didn't work. I then checked to see if I have power to the crank sensor and I DO NOT. I'm not too sure what supplies power to the crank sensor? Is it the coil packs? Thank you very much for your time. T.J.

I took the Engine Control Module out and noticed water marks and corrosion on the inside of cover. I'm going to pick one up at a used auto parts store. I'll let you know.. Thanks for you time

Check your fuses and relays in th engine bay and in the fuse box inside. Check the fuse for the ECU. If it had corrosion and water marks, it could have shorted and blown the fuse. That's my best guess at this point. The ECU should supply power to the crank sensor.

The picture is the fuses in the engine bay and the fuse in the car is the #5 10 amp. Check these to see if they're good.

I too have a 2002 accent 1.6 has 95K miles on it an I am getting exactly the same problem. Intermittent no starts with lots of cranking. Usually it starts in 1 second but some times it cranks and cranks... I noticed when I turn the key off and on again then it starts ok. Also when it cranks for a little bit at normal speed, I let the key stay in the on position and try to crank it again and it seems like there is a short because it cranks like there is a dead battery. Then when I turn the key off and on and crank it cranks fast and fires rite up???? I don't know but it seems to happen when the car is sitting over the weekend and not used for a little while. Once it starts for the day it never happens again ang of course there is never any check engine lite. I now notice I have this problem when it sits in the rain and isn't started all day. I took a hair dryer and dried off the engine and it started. An electrical problem somewhere under the hood!!!!
