Question type: General

i had to park my 2014 hyundai elantra for a few months.  I disconected the
negative cable on the battery when i reconnected it again the battery was
dead.   I jumped it with a portable jumper and it started right up. I let it run for
an hour and shut it off.  I tried starting it again and nothing.  I again jumped it
and let it run for an hour. same results.  The car only has 11,600 miles on it.  
any ideas why it wont charge?  is this common for this to happen on such a
relatively new car.

Battery is probably no good. Right now your cranking off your portable jumper. Battery cells can go cross or go bad. It's sounds like it keeping charge by it running 1/2 hr.
