I'm a new 2011 Sonata SE owner and just discovered something that I'm not sure if it's a problem or not. I looked through the owner's manual and can't find an answer. The engine start/stop button has a small (? led) light on it. Mine never lights up. I would think it should light up when the engine is running and turn off when it's not. Is this behavior normal or should I take it in for repair? Thanks in advance for any responses.

Thanks for the reply zoom. Yes the lettering lights up but not the small, oval led above it. That's the one I'm wondering about.

This light only turns on when the car is in accessory mode (it will turn orange) and on (it turns blue). Once the engine starts, it turns off. Kinda dumb in my opinion since all other cars it stays green when the engine is running.

But no worries---this is normal operation. Enjoy your Sonata!

Sweet! Thank you Adogg! So in ACC mode it's orange which, as I recall, is pushing the button once without having the gas pedal depressed. I'm not clear though under what condition it turns blue. Press it twice without the gas pedal being drepressed?
