What is csusing an intermittent starting problem with my Elantra?

If the starter motor won't crank, then check voltage and ground circuits at the starter motor, when problem is ongoing. Any testing at the starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.
Unless you can do some testing, I'm not sure how to help?

New battery new starter nothing happens when i turn the key

You definitely have a starting system problem. You have two circuits - Battery to starter circuit & the Starter Control Circuit (Ignition switch, Transaxel Range Switch (if Automatic Trans), Starter Relay, Starter Clutch Pedal Position Switch (if manual Trans) Fuse & Starter Solenoid). Based on your description, the problem is in the Control Circuit.

Here's an illustration:

Which relay controls whether or not i get a crank

There is no "Relay" per say, other then the solenoid on the starter it's self. The 4 components in the Starting circuit are the ignition switch, the transaxle position switch, the solenoid and the starter motor.

The ignition switch acts as a relay for power to the solenoid.

The transaxle position switch acts like another relay in that it will not allow the starter to turn if the car is not in neutral or park.

The Solenoid acts as a relay to the starter motor's power supply, and engages the starter's gear into the flywheel of the engine.

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the

There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.

97 isuzu trooper. Starter motor has no power.

Check the battery and cables going to the starter. Weak arc? Possible that the relay needs to be rechecked now. The inertia switch may also be a possibility. Has the car been in a recent fender bender?

2004 hyundai elantra starter

You culd be having more than one problem. First if you are having problem putting the car in park. The car may not actually be fully in park and therefore the neutral safety switch is active and telling to car you are in revers or in gear. If this is true then your car won't start for safety reasons. Try putting it in Neutral and see if it starts then. Ormay have a neutal safety switch that is bad. Can you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start?

Replacing starter for 2000 elantra gls

Verbatim from Haynes manual:

1. Disconnect the cable from the negative terminal of the battery.
2. If your working on a 2000 or earlier model, remove the air intake duct and the air cleaner assembly.
3. If your working on a 2001 or later model, detach the shift cables(s) from the transaxle.
4. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the transaxle.
5. Unscrew the nut and disconnect the battery cable from the starter motor, then disconnect the wiring from the solenoid.
6. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts, supporting the starter motor as the bolts are removed, and remove the starter motor.
7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighter the starter mounting bolts to 20-25 foot pounds.
