Asked by lselvag Oct 29, 2013 at 08:53 PM about the 2006 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. I was stopped at a stop light and my car went quite and
when the light turned green the car would not drive- the check engine, oil and battery light
came on. Once I turned off the car and restarted it the lights went away and drove
normal. My oil does not need changed for about another 1000 miles. I just got a new
ignition and battery maybe 6 months ago.

Check your fuses to see if any are blown

It stalled. Could be a number of things. My first guess would be a faulty IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. Try cleaning it with some carburetor cleaner. Use a new gasket when you reinstall it. HTH. -Jim
