    2012 Accent will suddenly not start, no cranking and the lights don’t dim, after several tries it will start, this happens every few days. Battery is less than 2 yrs.

    First thing to do is to clean battery posts and cable terminals.
    Also, follow where battery negative cable goes to chassis.
    Clean the contact points, ground.
    This will eliminate corrosion as a possible cause.

    If it happens again then we look further
