2008 Hyundai Accent On Hot days when I park in the sun , the car's battery will "die". This happened last summer when the car was less than a year old and it happened again this year (it is the same battery). The rest of the year it runs fine. Beside "park in the shade" is there anything else I can do?

you have a power drain- something is wired directly to the positive terminal that is staying on after you shut the key off-it must be unhooked so that it will stop drawing juice from your battery-cheers Denny
That sounds like a timing/ cooling system issue. The coolant sensor would adjust the timing etc. Your tech would have to scan the car & check the live readings (HOT & COLD) & check the emissions. Put all the pieces together & solve the puzzle
Problem solved. I had no choice, but to have the car towed to the Hyundai dealer and at first they thought it was the ECM... ... (Because it had no sparks) Which is very expensive, $800.00 in Canada... But finally it was only the power relay of the ECM... $30.00... ouf! Sometimes it can only be the ground wire, that goes into the car.
