What does it mean if my car would not drive while stopped at a light and then my check engine, oil and battery light came on?

Asked by 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

Hi Iselvag - I have encountered an exact similar problem today. Could you please post what eventually was the root cause for your issue and how you got it resolved? That will be helpful. Thanks

So the car died out, it came out to be wrong oil (not fit to the temperature), and wasn't manufacturer cause? Like 2 years old post but still comes up in Google. I assume it's hard to sell 2006 Sonata if these come up.
