problem #2

Sep 012019

Sonata Hybrid Limited 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,582 miles


Sunday morning driving to church the HEV light comes on (along with the check engine light) with an annoying beeping noise telling us to turn off the engine. We pull over, and turn off the engine, wait a minute, then turn the engine back on. The warning light is off, though the check engine light is back on. We continue driving, didn't even get .5 miles and the warning light came back on. Stopped again and turned the car off again. This time after we turned it back on we turned the power mode off ECO. That seemed to get us the couple miles back to home without the warning light coming back on. We have tried driving it a couple times since, one time the warning light came back on pretty quickly after starting, the next time I drove over 3 miles with no warning light (except the check engine light is still on). It's now sitting in the shop waiting to get diagnosed. Hopefully covered by warranty.

My wife took the car to Alabama (from Tennessee) for a wedding. After a 5-minute detour visit with our daughter, she started the car up only to have the HEV (and a number of other lights) warning light come on. The car would not start. Only have a 30-minute rest did the car startup (again with the HEV and check engine light on) and able to come home. It is now in the shop with a hopeful solution.
