You need to check for a blown main fuse, if none are found then it needs to be check over by a tech, it may have fried some electronics, Hyundai's along with most Asian vehicles don't fair well with voltage spikes. Next take your son in hand and attend an automobile basics training session. There are a lot of shops and some community collages that offer this, and a lot of them are free. I believe that ther is even some on you tube on do's and don'ts. HTH
