Shop Hyundai Santa Fe Replacement Ignition Coil
Also referred to as an ignition coil pack, the ignition coil in the Hyundai Santa Fe integrates with the engine to feed the spark plugs and is easier to replace than it is on vehicles with a distributor. All models of the Santa Fe have a distributor-less ignition system with the ignition coil mounted directly on the engine. The spark plug wires plug into it just as they do to a distributor cap. The ignition coil is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module so it's hard to inspect; however, you can test it with a meter to see if it's delivering the correct voltage.
PartsGeek.com has the Ignition Coil for your Santa Fe; you can find what you need to keep it going strong right here. We handle OEM parts, the same ones that were installed by the factory where your Santa Fe was assembled.

Research on Ignition Coil for Hyundai Santa Fe
The Hyundai Santa Fe ignition coil - sometimes known as a "spark coil" - is what is known as an "induction coil" (an "inductorium" if you really want to get technical about it). The concept dates from the early 19th Century, when a number of scientists working in England developed the first working induction coil. Between the 1880s and the 1920s, the induction coil was used for numerous purposes, including x-rays, radio transmission and arc lighting. Today however, its only practical use is as a transformer; literally, this device "transforms" the relatively low voltage of your vehicle's battery into the high voltage required to produce the electric spark that ignites the fuel in your engine's cylinders.
It should be apparent that when Hyundai Santa Fe ignition coil problems occur, the result will be misfiring - and it is possible that the engine won't even run.
2003 Hyundai Santa Fe Ignition Coil - Before and After
In the old days - back when automobiles had distributors - the typical ignition coil required a type of electrical switch, known as "points," or a contact breaker. These were found inside the body of the distributor. They also needed a capacitor, or condenser, the function of which was to store electrical energy (rather than releasing it all at once).
The advent of modern electronic ignition systems rendered all of that obsolete. Today, most ignition systems employ a power transistor, or semiconductor, in order to pass on electrical pulses to the coil. A modern internal combustion, gasoline-fired motor may actually have multiple ignition coils - in some cases, one for each cylinder. This eliminates the need for troublesome plug wires and the old-fashioned distributor. This is the system used by all models up through the 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe.
Ignition Coil Problems
The ignition coil is a component that does not improve with age. Eventually, you'll be in need of a Hyundai Santa Fe ignition coil replacement, probably at around 100,000 miles, although some last longer. There are a number of reasons as to why an ignition coil might fail prematurely, usually due to the copper wire contained within it, which can be vulnerable to heat and moisture. The first sign that your ignition coil is starting to go bad is misfiring. Generally, this will be signaled by the "check engine" light, which will throw out a numeric code when subject to a computer analysis. Eventually, the engine may stop running altogether. This is not something you should ignore, as a faulty ignition coil can lead to the damage of other components that depend on it, such as the wires and spark plugs.
