My 2005 Sonata recently stopped on me while driving. Fuel pump and strainer changed along with timing belt and plugs. Car still will not start. What should I do next to get it started.

I do not mean to give you a hard time but why did you replace these parts.
A car would not stop due to a bad plug, it may miss but not stop. Was the timing belt broken? Did you not have fuel pressure?. There are many reasons a car will not run. After you try to start it have you looked a plug to see if it is "Wet"? That will determine if gas is flowing.
Cars are not like they use to be:
1) Where you looked down the carburetor and pump the throttle and if gas squirted out .
2) When you would remove a plug wire and crank the engine and see if you have spark
3 ) Where you would verify the timing by turning the engine to align the timing mark and see it the distributer was aimed at plug one.
Cars are very complicated know and you may have spent more than it would have cost you to bring it to someone with the test equipment.
You could have the codes read by someone or buy a reader but you are spending more money again.

It was time for the timing belt to be changed car has 105,000m. Also the plugs were needed. Everything u mentioned above was checked.

With everything being electronic nowadays, it has to be a bad sensor and the one that will prevent a car from starting is the camshaft sensor and the crankshaft sensor. These are the two I would be suspicious of.

#83 of 93 Replace rear deck speaker

I was told that in order to replace the rear deck speaker in a 2006 Sonata LX you will have to remove the back seat. Does anyone know if this is easy enough to do without going to the dealer?

I do not know how you do it but can not take any special tools. The online manual should show you how. To change the fuel pump filter you remove the back seat.

It only takes a pro a few minutes. I'm not sure of the exact procedure on your year. It all comes off pretty easily. You might shop around stereo shops for a good deal on labor. FYI, in the past working on other cars, i found getting the back seat out was very easy. Getting the side trim off of the rear deck area was harder for me. I work slow and easy to prevent breaking the plastic keepers that hold the trim to the sheetmetal. In general I think it would be one of those projects that end up being easier than you thought... Good luck!
