How to disable a 2011 Hyundai Sonata without hurting anything

Asked by Jun 03, 2018 at 11:35 AM about the 2011 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: General

My 83 year old dad has dementia and wants to have his car near him
although he is not allowed to drive.  I want to park the car outside his home
so that he has the comfort of seeing his car and knowing it hasn't been
stolen. But I cannot let him drive it; He doesn't have a license and is no
longer insured of course. How can I disable the car to be sure it won't start
but in a way that doesn't damage anything?

Thank you! I guess I should have asked for step-by-step instructions or a picture. Can you help me further? I don't know where this would be in the car. I hate to ask this but I am pretty flat-footed when it comes to cars.
