Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
I tried starting my car this morning and nothing happened. The stereo slowly ejected a cd and the Odometer looked like it had hieroglyphics on it for a few seconds. I could hear a rapid high pitched clicking noise that seemed to be coming from the fuse box, possibly the starter fuse or the main fuse (based off where the clicking seemed to stem from). It was suggested the battery could be at fault. It is at least about 4 years old since I got the car and it had a lot of corrosion that I cleaned off just a few days ago. I added some anti-corrosion gel after cleaning. If anyone knows what could be the culprit please halp!
Best suggestion is go to advanced auto parts or autozone and get your battery tested. A weak battery can cause a lot of problems. They will test the battery to see if it can *hold* a charge. 4 years is a long time for a battery. Even the most expensive batteries have at most a 3 year warranty. If it is not the battery, it will most likely need a new starter, but it REALLY seems like you just need a new battery

If the starter motor is sticking, it can draw a large current. If there is power down to the starter motor while its not starting then the starter is faulty. You can test this with a multimeter or just a test bulb connected to the smaller of the two wires on the starter, while cranking.Check you have a good earth from the battery to the engine. If the bulb lights up but no engine cranking then its a faulty starter.

Check if your transmission really is in park. I once had the same problem and it was fixed by moving the stick in and out of the park stand for a couple of times. Then the red light illuminating the "P" came on and i could start again.
Has to do with the transmission cable that tends to get a bit loose.

Try removing the battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals. Coat same with an anti-corrosion grease. Wash your hands after this to prevent mysterious holes in your clothes. Start the engine and measure the voltage at the battery terminals--should read 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Hope this helps.
