I left my car (2000 hyundai sonata V6 GLS)for 4 months(from end of summer to very cold winter now), and when I tried to turn it on again it would not start. I got a boost for it and everything seemed fine(heater was fine and no lights on) until I turned it off and I tried to turn it on again and it was dead. So I assumed its the battery. I took it out and went to Costco to replace it. The costco person gave a battery with number 9 from kirkland. I went and tried to installed the battery and when I connected it teh car started going crazy. Winshield would not turn off, most light inside was on and this was without key in. I tried to turn the car on and it would not start. I am not sure but smelled a something burning. I took the battery out as soon as possible. I took the battery back to Costco (I was angry) and they gave me the suppostly the right battery. I installed the right battery and the car turned on normally but not now the battery light is on and the heater does not work anymore (no fan). Plus, I did not have the right tools second time and top cables on not installed correctly but they are on top of the battery rods and touching.
have the same problem?
