Car won't start....or even try

So I've been reading up about this issue a lot, and haven't seen any resolve for it.

I have a 2010 2.0T Track, and, for the second time, I got stranded somewhere because my car wouldn't start. The first time, I got it towed into the dealership and they swapped the brake switch.

This time (about a month later), I go into a restaurant to pick up some food, go back out to my car, push down the clutch, brake, and the button....nothing. I let off the clutch and my lights/electronics turn on. So I try it a few more times to make sure that I'm not losing it. I looked on the forums and read about the "hold for 15 seconds" override, so I pushed the clutch back down and held the button for 15 seconds. After that, my lights turned on, but still no crank. 3 annoying hours later, and I finally make the call to get it towed into Hyundai. Of course, by the time they receive it the next morning, it starts up just fine. They won't replace the switch or do anything because they can't pull any codes from it. So they're about to send it back to me, with a great possibility of rinse and repeating. I am getting frustrated with it, and the lack of a solution or diagnosis is really steering me toward selling it and buying something else.

Please, does anyone know what's wrong with it?

Possible grounding issues? Make sure ALL your grounds are good and making a great contacted with a metal surfce. the gen has poor grounding issues. Check your fuses, get your battery and alternator checked.

I have a similar problem with my 2013 right now, except my lights/electronics would never turn on when it happened. You can read more here:
2013 Genesis Coupe 3.8GT A/T - Start/igniton problems

They didn't want to replace anything either since it was not throwing any codes as well.

Nothing has been solved yet and has been working solid for a week, but my car is going back to the dealership next Friday, as my driver side unlock/lock button on the door handle no longer works. They've logged everything with Hyundai Canada, so hopefully they have an update for me when I bring the car in.

I had these issues when I bought my 2010 new, prior to beginning my career as an auto tech I had taken it to my dealer that actually fixed it with a reflash. Possibly an immobilizer issue. One I had never seen before and to this day I don't know what it was. But.. it didn't fix it entirely, it would always start but I had other buggy problems. so when I started at a Hyundai dealer I had a good friend who's a gold tech work on it since i had other issues like a vacuum leak DTC that would never go away and my blower completely wouldn't work. What it ended up being was loose connections in the main underhood fuse box. We tightened all the loose pins and I've been good ever since. I think when fuses and relays are inserted in the factory it isn't done carefully. You can test this your self by unbolting the fuse block and turning it over and wiggle the wires and check for looseness. Intermittent electrical issues tend to be wiring, whether it be grounds or power. If the car still doesn't start even with a fresh battery and the fob in the slot, then I would be looking at wiring. The dealer can test the antennas for functionality with the GDS so as for the door button issue, they probably just need to replace it so long as the actuation test passes (turn on off and fob led flashes)This is probably my first and last Hyundai, their technology is good, quality control not so much. Even Mercedes is using cheap Asian parts now too (park sensors etc..)

I'd bet it's your brake switch. Hyundai has a problem with this on every single one of their cars. Since the car isn't cranking it seems like one of the 'safety' features is keeping the ecu from turning the motor over.

If it was an auto then it would cause a no start, no shift but if it's a manual than no

Makes sense. I saw he put his foot on the clutch and brake so I thought you might have to do something with the push button starts. You can try jumping the clutch switch to test if it was bad. I have mine jumped since I'm lazy in all my cars, but if you leave it in gear the car will take off. So i recommend just doing it for testing purposes then if it's bad have them fix it.

2013 Genesis 2.0T

I am currently having the same issue. This is the 5th time my car does not start. The faub will not arm/unarm the car, push button does not start, and sliding into the center console does nothing either. It has been towed to the dealer twice, and by the time they get to it, it works fine.
They have changed the faub batteries, checked the brake switch, checked the battery, the fuses, and checked the electrical system with no findings.
They say they cannot do anything b/c they cannot duplicate it.
I do not know what to do, because I am afraid I will get stranded AGAIN!
I have a 2013 2.0T, with 14,000 miles,

Image aside this sounds like it's an issue with the parking sensor going bad. The sensor doesn't recognize when you put the car in park.

Make sure that the rug isn't preventing you from pushing the clutch all the way in. Make sure you are burying the clutch ALL THE WAY to the floor.

Sometimes the clutch safety switch needs adjustment and in order for it allow you to start the car, the clutch has to be all the way to the mat. It could be that it's just bad too. If it happens again, just push start the car.


Also, have you had your battery tested? Check the battery terminals, make sure they are 100% clean (take them off and brush them even if they look good) and 100% tight. I have seen painted battery terminals (when the orig terminals have rotted off and replaced with the lead ones) that would not make a good connection.

Disconnect the battery and try again.

I've had the same problem before and it is now happening again. I have a 2010 2.0T (just turned 60k miles a few days ago, bought it at the end of 2010 with 14k) with a modified exhaust. The first time it happened, I didn't have any mods, took it to the dealer, they replaced the break switch, about a month later my driver's side lock/unlock button stopped working, took it to the dealer again. They replaced the handle, but you gotta love their explanation to me, the woman at the shop desk said, and I quote, "You pushed it to many times and it stopped working"... I looked at her bewildered, its a BUTTON lady, meant to be PUSHED!

Anyway, this morning (twoyears later) same thing, wont start, lights go on, car is beeping, nothing. Tried starting with brake and clutch in, then just clutch. Also, over the last couple months randomly whenever I'd park and go to turn the car off, I'd push the button and it would make a grinding sound as if the starter is turning over again while the engine is still running.

I'm also contemplating on selling and just moving to a new brand, this is ridiculous.

I have a 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe GT automatic with 10,980 miles on it. I would not expect to have any issues with the car with so few miles. I bought the car brand new and the only modification to the car that has been made is the tinted windows. At about 8000 miles the car would attempt to crank but fail to start while flashing a "Key Not Found" message on the cluster. I would place the key into the console slot and get the same message and non-start. After about four attempts, it would crank right up. The dealership replaced the ignition switch and brake switch and took it to get it inspected and it failed for a non-start again. They then replaced a neutral safety switch and returned it to me. In less than 200 miles, it failed again and is currently back at the dealership for three days. They called me today and said they had replaced various switches and sensors and it again failed to start on them during testing. I also have the drivers side door lock that when you push the button, it beeps twice but does not unlock intermittently. I get a lot of texts from my car saying the alarm is going off when its not (while driving and parked). My bluetooth won't connect the phone properly if I am on a call when entering the vehicle. And, I get service alerts all the time even after the dealership swears they reset the system. I quit paying for the phone app remote as it always says "signal received, but not processed". I called Hyundai today and told them I am very unsatisfied with the vehicle and would like to look at options of disposing of the car. They are completing an investigation and said they would get back to me by the end of the week. I have decided to be free of this car one way or another and hopefully move onto another brand. This was my first Hyundai and I am terrified to drive it as I know I will probably get stranded somewhere. I drive my Chevy Avalanche with 160,000 miles because its more dependable.
