Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
These santa fe's are known to be screwy, winter time brings out the worst in most cars, did you retrieve a trouble code that told you this ? It doesn't hurt to replace your thermostat, cheap fix, sure its not your temperature sensor ? should replace this also ! clear out codes from your computer , a parts store can do this for you, hell , let them check out your problem for you, then buy thermostat, etc.,

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action please try to charge the battery. It may be weak which may cause the car not to start.
If the problem still persists please try to check the starter. It is located at the back of the engine near the flywheel. It has 2 bolts that holds the starter and a cable connected to the positive battery terminal. Try to put the starter on the battery ground and connect the positive connector to the starter. If it doesn't kick then the starter needs replacement. If it kicks then there must be some electrical issues.
I suggest that you visit a reputable auto electrician to trace out the problem.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Is it throwing a DTC/OBD code, causing the Check engine light to come on or does the thermostat read that it is running hot? Either way, the plastic coolant parts in this car wear out, leaving cracks in the coolant parts (overflow bottle, thermostat housing, other various hoses). These leaks may be small enough where they will not be obvious leaks and may only show up when under pressure (when car is running). Air in your coolant lines will cause an overheating issue and does need to be addressed. If your the OBD and/or temp gauge is telling you that the car is running hot, I would make sure that you dont have a coolant leak
