Asked by Mar 18, 2014 at 02:00 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2013 Sonata w/25K miles; car will not start; lights, windows, radio etc. all function; turn key & no noise at all; this is the 5th time it has happened in the past 6 weeks; replaced the battery; even after replacement had to have it jump started by Rescue Rangers/Hyundai Road Service & drove to dealership where they replaced starter arm; yesterday, drove to work, backed into parking spot, went out 2 hours later, car would not turn over or make a noise; called to have it towed to dealership, showed tow driver it would not start; towed to dealership where it started up and has continued to start without incident; has anyone encountered this problem? it's one of the best vehicles I've had in the past 30 years, but it is getting beyond frustrating having to be concerned will it or won't it start & where will it potentially strand me.

I am having a similar issue. My car worked fine for 2 years/ 22000 miles. Suddenly one day battery died and dealership couldn't find anything wrong with it. I don't know what to do. Should I ask them to change the battery?

DID YOU FIX THE PROBLEM? I AM HAVING THIS SAME ISSUE.

I have a 2012 Elantra and this is happening to me as well. I replaced the battery two months ago because of getting stranded. Today I stopped for gas and had to get a jump start! When this happens, the brake is HARD and will not push in. I have a push button start. Usually, I hit the brake, hit the start button and it cranks. When this happens, I hit the brake (and see that it is hard), hit the start button and only the auxiliary power comes on. One second on a battery charger and it cranks right up. Went straight to O'Reiley's and everything checked out fine...battery, alternator, and starter.
