Two problems related to check engine light on have been reported for the 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe.
The contact owns a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe. The contact stated while driving at speeds of 65 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The tachometer read zero and the vehicle violently jerked and then restarted itself. The failure would occur intermittently and often times, the check engine light would illuminate. The vehicle was taken to a local repair facility where he was informed that the crankshaft position sensor had failed and would need to be replaced. The manufacturer advised there were no recalls on the vehicle. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileages were 132,000.
Started my car, it didnt feel right, pulled out of my driveway and started to drive when the car started to stall but didnt and between 1 st and 2 nd gear the car was jerking. I pulled over shut car off and try it again, same thing. I drove for a few blocks seem to drive better after 2nd gear. So I drove it to the dealer to have it checked out. The check engine light was on. I was told there was a recall on the 2002 Santa Fe regarding the crankshaft position sensor which would cause a engine stall and the sensor would need to be replaced. But I was told that my 2002 Santa Fe did not make the recall list. Why wont they fix the problem that was recalled ? but they will fix it if I pay for it.
