I parked my 2009 mSonata 2 nights ago att my home. Yesterday when I attempted to drive to work, there was mo0 power, the car was totally dead. The blinking light wasn't even working. The remote wouldn't open the doors and the key in door wouldn't even work. I had no notice about my engine or anything. What could cause that?
JA: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?
Customer: I guess it's the light that when I turn off the car that light always comes on and blinks.
JA: What is the make/model of your car?
Customer: 2009 Sonata
JA: Are you fixing your Sonata Limited yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I though it might be the remote, so I bought a new battery and installed it. It still didn't work.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I had no warning. Last month I had my tire fixed because it was leaking. After they put the tire back on, I turned the car off and it woulkdn't start again. The steering wheel locked but the blinking light was still on. I thought it might be the battery, so I was given aboost and went directly to Advanced Auto and purchased a new battery. The mechanic 5old me his electrician did something electrical to release the steering wheel. The car started and I had no problem until I tried to drive it yesterday.
