Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
I have been having a hard time with starting my car, it takes a long
time for it to crank on. I have spent so much money only to be stuck
with the same problems. When I first go out in the morning to leave for
work, it has a hard time cranking over but once on it runs just fine
and smoothly. Then when I go home from work, same problems, wont crank
over. I have been all over trying to get diagnositics done with zero
luck. I went to one garage and they said I was getting now pressure
from my fuel pump so I spent $300 for a new pump only to find out it
did no good.
It has a hard time cranking over in the morning but once started runs fine. If I go into a store for say 15- a half hour, same thing, wont crank over smoothly. But, if I start it let it run or drive it, come home turn it off then immediately crank it over to start it again, it starts up just fine! I am at a loss here and dont want to or should I say cant spend anymore money trying to figure out the problem as I am going broke here. HELP!!! Also my check engine light has never came on at all through all this.
I have an 03 Santa Fe as well and just had the exact thing happen to me. One day, it just wouldn't turn over at all and I had to have it towed to the dealer. They replaced the "crank shaft position sensor" and now the car is fine. I am not sure if this is your problem but it might be worthwhile asking someone to check it out.

To me this dose not sound like a battery or vaper lock as it happens when it is cold
what i would say is if it is cranking slow then it would be your starter motor if it was a fuel pump then it would still crank at the same speed just not start
hope his helps

It could be the starter, or battery.

This is from the factory service manual of your car:
There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Translation you need the dealer to do this.
