Q: My car won't start

asked by on

My car want start I turn the key the lights the radio everything cuts on but the car itself

My car has 50000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It could be something as simple as a dead battery. The battery may have enough power to light things on like the radio, but not enough power to start the car. Try jump starting it or you can call Hyundai Roadside Assistance, as you have that coverage for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.
