2015 Optima EX

So I have a 2015 EX push button start Optima. When I go to start my car, occasionally, and its becoming more frequent, the car starts to turn over, pauses for a second or two, then continues to turn over and starts. Along with it, I have been getting my TPMS sensor flashing non-stop, and eventually that goes away.

Any suggestions? Buddy things it may be a battery issue. The car has 60k miles, and I believe it to be the original battery.

Thanks!

I'd first check the battery to make certain it's up to snuff @12.6, then remove and clean battery cable ends/posts.

Battery seems old enough (4+ years old) that age may indeed be an issue. The original OEM battery in my GMC died shortly after passing the three-year mark, and a DieHard (more like DieEasy) battery that replaced it died shortly after the three-year mark as well.
