When I try to start my Elantra I can hear the starter solenoid click, but the motor doesn't turn over / crank.
After a few attempts of this, the car loses all electrical power for awhile (~1 hour). Turning the ignition to on doesn't display any dash lights, and none of the rest of the electrical systems work. I've noticed that the dash lights also seem to fade on the last few attempts before everything goes dark. After the hour I can use the electrical systems (turn on the lights, beep the horn, ect) until I try starting it again.
This happens with both the old and a new battery.
I'm planning to pull the starter motor, but it seems odd that it would affect the whole electrical system in this way. I was wondering if anyone has any insights into what I'm seeing.
