99 hyundai accent starts sometimes. not battery

For past 2 weeks.... (Check engine light comes on and off).
I started it, warmed for 15 minutes. Shut it off, turned back on, no problem. took it to end of road, it stalled and wouldnt start for 30 minutes. Got it home and it wouldnt start again. Started again an hour later, ran for 5 minutes, shut off again. Sometimes it goes for days without any problem.

Ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL

I was driving home and the car just stop, the break light came on and the battery light came on as well, i tryed to boost it still wont turn over would it be the alternator ?

99% of the time when those 2 lights come on together then yes, the alternator is not charging. You should be able to jump off though. May have to let it charge off other vehicle for a few minutes. Also check cable connection. If it does start when you remove cable it will die. Computer will shut down vehicle when it has less than 12 volts. If need be you could put a fully charged battery in and drive for a short period with no headlights or accessories on.

My 2009 Hyundai Accent feels like transmission slipping while driving. If I pull over and restart it usually goes away. Sometime check engine light goes on. I bought it used in September 2010 and took it...

You should go to an actual Hyundai dealer . My angine lights started flashing one time with similar symptoms as what you described and they easily fixed it.

Did youmtry disconnecting the battery for five minutes, then reconnect, start engine and let it idle for 5 minutes with everything off, including radio and heater. If this don,t work you may have a faulty position sensor. I hope this helps.
