2012 Sorento SX Intermittently Won't Start
2012 Sorento SX, 3.5L V6:
Over the past year or so, my wife's Sorento has intermittently failed to start several times, the most recent being yesterday. Sometime last year, the dealership cleaned various contacts/grounds in the wiring harness, and it seemed to be okay for awhile, but the problem has returned. They have never been able to duplicate the problem.
It has only happened when my wife was driving and never when I was in the car, so I can only tell you that she says that all the dash lights come on, but absolutely nothing happens when she presses the Start button. Inserting the key in the emergency slot in the arm rest only seems to work occasionally. (Her key fob has a new battery, BTW, and remotely locks/unlocks the doors just fine.) So far, it has eventually started every time, but only after many attempts.
I switched key fobs with my wife today, so it may be awhile before I know whether that is the issue, but in the meantime, has anyone else had this issue and had it solved?
