Clicking noise dash, cranks but won’t start – Hyundai
Hyundai owners may encounter a situation where they hear a clicking noise under dash, accompanied by a cranks but won’t start condition. If you check further, you may discover that you have fuel pressure but no spark. And, you’re suspicious of the clicking noise under dash issue. You should be.
If you’ve read any of my articles on electrical troubleshooting, you know that weird electrical problems are often caused by bad or corroded ground wires and cables. Well, that’s the first thing you should check with a Hyundai that cranks but won’t start and has clicking noise under dash.
Shops are finding poor ground connections at the negative battery cable, negative battery to fender or radiator support, battery to engine, and engine to firewall. Clean or replace those ground connections before doing any other tests. If the clicking noise goes away, go ahead and try to start the engine. If it still doesn’t start, check for spark. If you don’t have spark, perform crankshaft and camshaft sensor tests
