Question about 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS
When starting car, it shuts off automatically and check engine, battery, oil lights are lit. what happened?
The Check Engine tells you that something is wrong about your ride. Get your ride check for error code and take necessary steps to resolve the issue. Also you can post the error codes so that we can help you to solve the issue. Battery light lit means that your battery needs to be charged or the electrolyte in the battery is low. Also it can be possible that the battery needs replacement. Last the oil light alerts you to change the engine oil. The engine oil prevents the engine components from wearing due to friction and suppresses the heat generation keeping the metal parts in proper working condition.

could be the crank sensor breaking down when hot which will cause you to lose spark,get it hot and see if have a spark from plug lead after it does cut out and this will verify it.

Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

Ok, with the battery, oil etc lights are governed by simple circuits, and therfore, as soon as they receive power, and earth, they turn off right away.
With the other lights, the malfunction and EPS lights, these go through a self-test function where they check a number of sensors, not just one, and they do this very quickly......the malfunction light checks out 20-35 different sensors, and in less than 1-2 seconds, thats fast.........
However, if they STAY on, then this is where it detects a problem and you should come back and see us again.
