You could take the starter out and take it to a place like autozone and they can test it for free.They even test the system I believe when the car is still running.All stores have different testing equipment.

SOURCE: 2004 Santa Fe Ignition switch locked

Tried all above on 2002 Santa Fe. After locking steering wheel, I pulled wheel hard to the right and the key turned in the ignition. We had below zero temps so I'm not sure if that did something. This model is horrible with frozen doors so who knows. Otherwise the car has been great.

How to get keys out of Hyundai santa fe 2002 truck... no tools... in broke til next week... am i screwed?

Well of your keys are stuck in the ignition it's simple. Make sure it's in Park and as you're tour in the key to the off position turn the wheel back and forth. If the wheel doesn't move it's because it's locked, so just try to turn the key backwards and turn the steering wheel left and right, this will unlock the keys from the ignition. Now if your keys are locked IN the suv you can make a slim Jim pretty easily, if you can't figure it out by googleing it then a pretty sure way to do it is by calling your local police department, not the emergency line, the local number and asking if a cop could unlock your car because you need the keys out as an emergency.

2004 Santa Fe Ignition switch locked

I just had this happen to me yesterday with my 2002 Santa Fe. After trying everything (jiggling steeling wheel, shaking the car, you name it we tried it). We got a chain and pulled the car ahead about 2 feet. That didn't seem to do anything but we then pulled up the emergency brake into the lock position and tried to start the car (with the ER brake on) and it worked!!! The steering wheel came unlocked and the car started up. Don't know if it was the pulling of the car that broke something free or if it was the ER brake, but that was what worked for me.
