Dead new battery - when I boost, the car's starter seems stuck

Asked by Jan 04, 2018 at 11:39 AM about the 2009 Hyundai Accent

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After I leave car for a couple of hours, battery is too dead to even light the dome. When I hook up to boost it, the car tries to start and tries to lunge forward without the key even being in it. Car is standard transmission. This is sporadic. Happened yesterday but not for two weeks before. It does this in warm weather as well as the deep freeze temperatures. Could it be a stuck solenoid on the starter? I am grasping here - I am no mechanic.
