Hyundai Sonata QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I have a 2009 Hyundai Sonata. It recently acted like it didn't want to start so I took it to be tested at the auto parts store, where I was told that I had a bad battery. Spent $120 on a brand new battery with warranty. Exactly 1 week later I go out to crank the car early in the morning and it would not crank. Took over 10 tries for it to finally start up. Got the starter tested that evening and everything is testing fine! It is continuing to give me this problem every day every time I go to start my car. I did notice however, if I hold the key a certain way, it's almost like it will catch faster. I have been told numerous things such as timing belt, ignition switch, fuel pump etc. However I don't have money to be playing "process of elimination ".... please help!
I BOUGHT MY CAR FROM AN ELDERLY MAN, WE CHANGED THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TWICE SO FAR BECAUSE THE TRANSMISSION FLUID WAS NOT THE SYNTHETIC AS CALLED FOR IN MANUAL. WHEN I START OUT APPLYING GAS HARD THE CAR JUMPS AS IF ITS COUGHING( HARD JERK)IF I APPLY THE GAS SLOWLY IS DOESN'T DO THIS.

Blows cold air before blowing fuse. I have replaced the cabin air filter.
When it starts, it won't idle. I've had the fuel pump replaced but it still happens.
I've taken my car to the dealer several times since I purchased it in 2013. Actually, I purchased it in April 2013, took it back in Sept, then July, then Aug, Feb, April, and now the end of June. I'm so very frustrated. They are saying the turbine blew out. I'm so sick of them! I purchased an additional warranty when I got the car for 100, 000 miles. I'm at 73,000 and they're refusing to honor the warranty. I've been procrastinating on getting a lawyer. In the meantime, I'd like to know how much this kind of repair would cost. They'd sent someone to inspect and diagnose the problem. They said it's the turbine and said what parts needed to be ordered and what it would cost me if they didn't honor the warranty. Yesterday they called and said they need my permission to have someone tear down the valve cover and oil pan. I haven't yet granted permission because my trust and confidence in them is a ZERO. Any information you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks.
Changed brake switch and cleaned gear connectors
This just started. Everything on dash resets every time it is started. Does not interfere with the performance of the car.
Someone put in a radio and since then, the brake lights, headlights, sunroof, and air conditioner do not come on. Fuses seem to all be okay inside car and under hood, could it possibly be crossed wires, or something deeper?
Smoke was coming from my exhaust then the check engine light came on and the rpm hand was moving by itself and then it shut off.. it starts up then turns right back off. What could it be?
sometimes it just wont start
Took to mech said computer not reading temp correctly.He changed t-stat,then i changed temp sensor.disconnected plug and fan came on.also turn on ac and heater and temp goes to hot.Could radiator or water pump be issue,drove on street and got a little hot,just below half,took on freeway ok.seems if air flow good temp stays just below half.
is there something I can do?

My car stereo has stopped working ever since I "crosswired" my battery cables. I'm suspecting a blown fuse, but the one I
located inside, under dash
looks okay. Isn't there ano- ther one?
first time it was just sitting in the driveway with 1/4 tank of gas and started up no problems the next day...second time going through a drive thru and it happened when i was going around a corner (put it in neutral then pushed aside) then started again, once again it was 1/4 tank of gas...the most recent time i had a full tank of gas and i was driving slow in a neighborhood
i had it towed to a hyundai dealership then it started back up again and they couldn't get any codes to show up they even relearned it and after a week and $100 later they still had no answer
all the other electrics work fine so don't think its the battery. but when the car won start and my key is not in the ignition I can roll down my electric window?
tried 2 different ones. Did not work. Any suggestions? Catalyst & 02 sensor not ready. Should I unplug the ECU as mentioned to someone else?
Prior to this I had no spark.now I have spark but seems like no fuel now.relay was also replaced
I took my car to North Hills Exxon that's on your list. My car was shutting off and they replaced the position sensor. Now the car is making a grinding noise
