Car is a 2004 with the I-4. My brother in law was driving my sister's car yesterday when it randomly shut off. It will crank but it will not start now.
From what I read, the crankshaft position sensor is a common failure mode. The car has 112,xxx miles and I am going to do the timing belt as well if the sensor needs replaced.
Is there any way other than using a code reader to get the codes from the ECU? Nissan's have a switch on the side of the ECU and if you turn it, the MIL blinks to indicate the P code. Does the Sonata have anything like this?
You very well might not get a code for the no start. When I replaced my CPS on my 03 2.7 santa fe, I had never gotten a cel. I had problems for over five years where the vehicle would jerk like it was shutting off and then continue on like normal. I don't think any of the hyunda's have that blinking light method. If it is the CPS it is going to be expensive to replace, almost like changing out the timing belt. I'd pull a search on your social network to see if any friends have a reader.
