Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a Hyundai Fanta Fe 2015. My husband parked the car on our drive way and I realized he had left the lights on and the car open. Thinking this was strange I went out and the whole thing had frozen. Nothing electrical would respond. If it was a computer it was like it had frozen. I have locked the car using the pull out key in the door. Released the shift lock with a screw driver as it was stuck in park but still no joy in starting the engine? Can you help at all. The interior lights are on so it doesn’t feel like the car battery is dead. Strangely it won’t even detect the key is in the car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual for this?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Santa Fe yourself? What have you tried so far?

As above

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No I think that’s everything.
