    Anyone know where i can get the codes on a 96 hyundai elantra scanned?

    Apparently the OBD2 scanners off ebay do not work on elantra's.

    Im having an issue with the car and the mechanic's cant seem to find the problem.


    Car seems to run fine, but once warm and you turn off and try to re-start the car seems to flood. only but holding your foot flat and cranking for 10 seconds can you get it going again.

    though some research im leaning towards a faulty ecu temp sensor as the radiator fan is always "on".

    And input would be welcome.

    a possibility, but why is the radiator fan always on :cursing:
    could also be a faulty idle control valve....:eek:

    Hmm. Likely the ECU temp sensor is indeed kaput (check wiring, cars are like Lolly Jackson, 90% of all kak experienced is due to dodgy connections). Possibly the ECU is flooding the engine by thinking you're driving around in antarctica)

    See if you can find a workshop manual for it, generally you can test the resistance of the temp sensor.

    Izzit a workshop manual? The car's owner's manual isn't going to of much use.

    When I had k@k with my Fraud Fiesta that the agents wanted megabucks to diagnose, I took it to a Bosch service center, they ran the codes (faulty ignition lead) for chickenfeed. The diagnostics plus a brand new set of leads cost me less than the half of just the diag at Fraud MoFo Co.
