My wifes 2011 Sonata Limited 2.4L would not start after two

Customer Question

My wifes 2011 Sonata Limited 2.4L would not start after two weeks of sitting in parking lot while we were on vacation. The car has 200k km and a new engine due to "catastrophic failure" at 160k. We had a new battery put in car by dealership and nothing so they towed it in. After a week the dealership said that there is a short in the electrical that blew the computer. The car turns over, ignition runs on after button is pushed but does not turn over. The lights and dash work intermittent. We are told that to replace the computer is 1,000 in labour and 1200 for parts. They also said they have never seen this happen before. (figures)
Any input before we fork out the money?
