Hyundai Sante Fe won't start

Asked by Jan 17, 2016 at 10:59 AM about the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Came out this morning and my Hyundai Santa Fe
wont start. It is dead, dead, dead! This is the 4th
time that this has happened. After the first time I
thought maybe I was accidentally leaving the cabin
lights on due to the light delay (you know... that
feature where the light stay on in the cabin for two
or three minutes after you exit the car).  Well I
turned that feature off, so when I exited the car last
night the car was completely dark. Every time this
is happened I get someone out here to jump start
my car and then the car runs fine again. This is a
2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. It has about 80,000 miles
on it (yes, I do drive A LOT!), but I purchased this
car brand new. We have been having very cold
mornings, but my previous car which was a Toyota
never had a problem like this. Any suggestions?

I'm having the exact same problem this winter. The dealer replaced the battery and two months later it's doing it again. Last winter was much, much colder and I had no trouble at all. The dealer said that there is only a tiny bit of amperage being drawn when it is turned off and this battery is testing fine. Mine only has 5000 miles on it though.
