2013 Hyundai Sonata Starting issues

Asked by May 30, 2019 at 07:45 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My friend has a 2013 Hyundai Sonata and she said she went to start the car
and all that would happen is the starter would spin but not engage the fly
wheel to start the car.  She tried jumping it but that did not work.  She honked
the horn, turned on the headlights and the car started.  They tested the
alternator and it is working fine.  I have never heard of a car having to honk
the horn and turn the lights on to make it work, but apparently that is the only
way to start the car.  It does have a keyed ignition and a remote starter but,
she does not have the key fob and misplaced it a couple of months ago.  An
ideas on what would cause this and more importantly how to fix it.
