Does anyone know where the inertia switch on a 2016 accent is located
Did you have an incident to trip it?


00000732


Best practices for requesting help:If you haven't done so fill in your vehicle info and profile page. At upper right corner under the search box click on user cp (it's your control panel)
This info will show up to the left under your user name and is very helpful.
BE SURE TO ADD YOUR LOCATION SO WE KNOW WHAT MARKET YOU ARE IN.



  • Be sure you are in the correct forum for your vehicle.
  • Do a search for your problem. A lot of stuff has been asked and answered.
  • Do not double post for the same problem.
  • Give the model year....Engine size...transmission type (auto or standard)
  • Take a single issue at a time. Posting multiple issues at once will get convoluted very quickly
  • VIN number can be very helpful
  • Vehicle history can be good. How many miles. If not bought new, how many have you put on it.
  • Describe the problem best you can. If a noise can you get a sound or video file
  • Tell us what has been done, if anything, thus far. If tests have been performed give actual results not OK or passed. If scanned for codes the actual code(s) not O2 sensor or MAF, Etc.
  • If the vehicle has been to a repair facility it would be nice if you could post a picture of that invoice/bill
  • If your vehicle is under warranty you should have the dealer check it out. If it's a problem they see many times they will generate a safety recall or TSB. This is how they know of the problem.

This information can save a lot of time and get you the answers you need much faster.


Thanks,
Welcome aboard.

As far as I know, Ford uses an inertia cut-off switch.
Don't know about Hyundai. Doubtful they use one.

But, if they did then it would be either next to the fire wall on either the driver's or passenger's side.
Would probably have a red top as a reset button
Or they would be near the foot rest near the outside panel (driver or passenger side).
Pull rug back to check. Or look under the dash.
Or even in trunk under carpet.

If you find one then let us know.
However, I believe that the ECU uses a couple of sensors (crankshaft sensor, impact sensor can set off the air bags, etc.)
to detect if the car was in a crash and ECU would disable the fuel pump relay.
Try clearing codes (or, last resort, disconnect battery for 5 minutes).

If trying to troubleshoot fuel issue then please remember that fuel pump will not get power unless the engine is cranking or running
If you turn key to "ON" position then fuel pump should prime fuel rail for about two seconds then off
If you crank engine then fuel pump should have power (only while cranking).
Can or do you know how to do a relay by-pass test??
Do not attempt if you do not know. Otherwise you can end up frying the ECU.
Could try swapping relays??

They are fitted to some Hyundai models, but never to diesels. And this is the diesel engine forum.

So basically just search the whole car :laugh:
