Hello and thank you for your question and sorry for the delay.

If jump starting the car allowed you to be able to drive it then you may very well be looking at a failing battery. I would start first with having the battery charged and load test to make sure it will hold the charge and while doing so also have the charging system tested to make sure the alternator is putting at the correct charging voltage. Normal charging voltage on a good working alternator should be right at 14 volts. Most auto part stores will run both of these tests for you at no charge. Post back if you have more questions and or need more help and we can work from there.

Am i better off buying a new battery or just a charger
Hyundai Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You may be okay to get a new battery but you would be better off to at least have the old one and the alternator checked first to make sure which one is failing. If the battery light dose not come on after the engine is running and the jumper cables are removed then its very likely just a failing battery.
