Your original battery is five years old and it is due to fail. It doesn't take much electricity to light the lights, but cranking over the engine takes a whole lot more. So get a jump start and don't turn it off until you can get to an auto parts store to get the battery tested and possibly replaced. Have them test the alternator too because that's where the battery gets it's recharge. The battery will be about $150 and they may install it for free.

My sonata 2013 is doing the same.. the battery, starter and alternator are all good. I read it could be the 42700R00 Switch Assy-Transmission Range I am about to buy one now and replace myself. I am going to return this car asap.
