Be sure too carfully inspect all the fuses especially the fuse running the interior of the car. You can narrow down the fuse by looking in your owners manual. Some blown fuses may look ok at first glance but may actually be blown.
My 2006 PT Cruiser has the same problem! When hot in the cab it won't start but after it is cool outside it starts up without missing a lick! When it is hot and you turn the key you get nothing but do have power to lights, radio, etc. weirdest thing ever and nobody knows why! We have had the ignition module replaced and have a new battery. This one has stumped everyone. Any suggestions folks?
Either wire harness problems or you got a so called lemon
One of the first books of Ralph Nader about auto industry.
Had a Hyundai like that 27 years ago. Until I took it totally apart and re-assembled it myself. 2 years ago bought a Piaggio 45 cc motorbike, same story. Took that apart one night and put it together as should be.
You can purchase the manual from the dealer. You need the disc for the nav system to program it. Another is you may need to have a code to operate the nav. Did you press the mode button to go from radio to cd? Try to detach the negative battery or press the reset button to factory default, this will bring you back to the factory settings. It looks like a small hole on the radio face. You must use a fine point to push it in and reset it. Is a cd stuck inside of the cd slot? Do all your trouble shooting first and you will find your answer......runjoe
I was looking through thread for a chronic AC problem with my (what I call POS Cruiser) and have also had the same thing happen with my radio. By chance, at least on mine, i happen to push the key in just a little and the radio came back on. I did this a few times, and sure enough pull on the key just a little and radio goes off, push it back in just a little and it comes back on. (this is a duplicate key on mine)
I hope this helps.
