2011 Hyundai Sontana that has been started in 90 days
We have a 2011 Hyundai Sonata that we have not started/driven in the last 90 days. It has keyless start and when we tried to start it today it would not turn over and the dashboard flashed and made a type of clicking noise. The car has been in the garage all this time and has not had any inside or outside lights left on.
Does this sound like battery issues or something else?
Simply a dead battery. Even a normal draw on a parked car is supposed to last from 90 - 120 days maximum. No matter about lights, the security system and normal battery loss will usually prevent start after about that amount of time...90 days. Nothing to worry about, you may or may not need a new battery....but put a trickle charger on it before buying a battery, matter of fact before jump-starting.
Now an unsolicited piece of advice: Start and drive the car, run it through all it's gears, get it up to 60 mph for at least 15 minutes at least one time every two weeks. Then it will be fine.
