first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.

first off, when it wont start check the voltage from the battery cable where it connects to the starter, if you have 12.5 volts there that will take battery cable corrosion out of the equation, then check to see if you have ground at the starter, which it sounds like you do not. it sounds like your ignition switch but hard to say from discription, make sure your battery cables are all tight, if you have all of this and its good i would say its the ignition switch which you can look up how to test in a chiltons or haynes manual from the auto parts store, if all of that stuff is good you can take the starter off and have it tested for free at autozone or any autoparts store, but usually the starter goes out really quick or just quits all together, if your not hearing a click noise when you turn it then your solinoid isnt engaging and means you dont have ground to it due to a short or bad ignition switch, that about covers the whole starting system, fuse isnt bad since it works sometimes. good luck hope that this helps you send me a message if you need more indepth help =)

The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

Sounds like the solenoid. You know you have Roadside Assistance with your new Hyundai. Have it towed in and get it diagnosed & repaired under warranty.
