Car won't turn back on

Asked by Jul 05, 2017 at 09:59 AM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Yesterday when I was driving home four new light
popped up on my dashboard (EPS, check engine,
battery and oil). My car also would not let me touch
the gas at all. Luckily I was able to coast into my
neighborhood. I put it in park and turned it off. It
would not allow me to turn it back on. My radio, air
and lights all turn on but my actual car will not. I
have plenty of gas, my oil I perfect and we tried to
jump my car. We ended up having to push my car
home and still nothing this morning. Any ideas on
what to do/ what it could be? I have a 2013
Hyundai Sonata.

You will need to have the car scanned for codes, you may have to have the car towed to the shop if you don't have a scan tool.

Did you receive the letter in the mail from Hyundai regarding the problem you could have with the 2013 Sonata? During the manufacturing in certain plants metal shavings found there way inside the engine (small block) causing problems similar to yours. Hyundai suggests bringing the vehicle to the dealer to be checked, and will replace the block if necessary. They extended the warranty and will provide a loaner until the work is completed.
