Well, since the lights come on, the battery's not dead, pop the hood amd check and make sure the cables are tight on the battery. next follow the cables down to the starter and see if the connections there are tight. if everything is good i would try to jump start it. leave it connected to the other car for 5 mins before starting it. if that doesent work, its going to be your starter that needs to be replaced. let me know if you have more questions.

Do you have a factory or aftermarket alarm installed?
If not, your ignition relay or starter may be bad.

I have a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz had dead battery was dead, tried to jump start, no luck battery is fully recharged. Turning on key all dash lights and gauges works but nothing when key is turned on. N


If you are sure the battery is charged and nothing happens when you turn the key you have a poor wiring connection somewhere or possibly an poor connection internal to the battery. First, turn on the headlights, then try to start the car. If the headlights go dim when you do that, you have a bad connection. If they stay bright, you are not completing the starting circuit. The most likely cause is a bad battery post connection. Remove the terminals and clean them to shiny metal then replace and try again. If that does not work try it again with a new battery.

Why did my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe sudden lost power while driving?


what happened when you tried jumping the car? sounds like it could be a bad ignition switch since only non-switched things work.

My car wont start but all lights and dash come on


Lisa, how long was the key in the one position? For the heck of it, put the car in neutral, and try to start it. It's possible the neutral safety switch is bad, which could cause the problem. It should start in neutral if that's the problem. Let me know if this works, if not, I'll help further.

If the dash lights go on when you turn the key to the on position then turn it to the start position the dash lights should go off. If this does not happen, your ignition switch may be bad.
