#31 of 49 Transmission problem
Dec 30, 2010 (7:47 pm)
2002 Accent automatic.
Problem just started today. Does not go into reverse. Hard shift and slipping when shifting into other gears while driving. Check engine light on.
What are the possible causes?

These trannys were known to have these kind of issues, especially if the fluid wasn't changed often enough or the wrong fluid was used. The check engine light is on because the tranny computer threw a failure code to the main ecu. It sounds like your tranny is toast. The only way to fix it now is to rebuild or replace it.
#33 of 49 1999 Accent transmission range sensor

My 1999 Accent has a check engine code stating a low voltage reading of my transmission range sensor. Where exactly is this sensor located?
#34 of 49 97 Hyundai Accent Stalls out when pushed on breaks
Mar 13, 2011 (7:57 pm)
It is a Hyundai accent 1997 automatic
Every time I step on the breaks it seems as if the car has a stutter problem , at times when i push on the breaks just a little bit to slow down the car will stall out. It turns on just fine. It will also seem to get stuck in a higher gear. Example if I am going 60 mph the rpm will read 3-4 and just sit there, i can feel it in the pedal when it does that.
to add to that when it is stuck in the high rpm it takes about 10 seconds after a stop to get going up to an actual speed.
The problem started out with it just stalling out every now and then but ONLY when i push on the breaks to stop or slow down , the rpm will shoot up and then usually stall out unless i push down on the gas a little.
Email if you have any idea what i should do or why my car does this. I am a single mom and this gets very scary when im driving with my son and it will stall out as i slow down and make a turn or anything like that.

I use to own late 80's and early 90's GM vehicles that had a similar problem with a 3 speed automatic. It was a solenoid switch in the transmission that locked up the torque convertor. It cost like $200 to fix (mostly labor) as the switch was inexpensive. I remember a mechanic telling me it's like riding a bicycle in 10th gear, coming to a stop and then trying to get going again without shifting the gear back to 1st. Good luck.

I have a 2009 Hyundai Accent, Automatic Transmission and it has been bucking a lot, AT fluid checked and it stopped briefly but it is doing it again. I have about 25600 miles on it and the fluid level is fine. Not sure if this is a sign the tranny is starting to go? The other day it would not shift up into the next gear and the RPM's kept revving high.
I am under warranty but do not trust what the dealership will have to say. Does anyone have any knowledge of this happening to them? Thank you....
#38 of 49 parking gear sensor problem
Jul 20, 2011 (10:37 am)
i have a 2001 accent which will not let me turn the key back to the lock position unless i disconnect the battery. i think it may be the sensor that tells the compuetr the car is in park? I can shift the car into gear when the key is in the lock position. Am I on the right track and can this be done on my own?

shellybear0925 ...I recently bought a 2009 Hyundai Accent, and it was doing the same thing yours is doing. It would get stuck in 2nd gear. If I was driving, it would clonk, jump, and then not shift. I have had 2 trips to the dealer now, and they just replace a speed sensor on the transmission. I don't know if that is the cause, bc I just picked my car up today, however.....I will definitely let you know...bc it has been a headache for us...hope this helps!!
