SOURCE: 2001 Hyundi Elantra will not start

If the cleaning and tightening of connections doesn't help (it very well could; this is a common problem) then the starter or starter solenoid are probably at fault. BTW, when removing battery cables, always remove the negative (ground) terminal first. Doing this then reduces the chance of striking a grounded point when removing the positive clamp of hitting ground with a wrench and damaging the tool and battery. If you are removing the negative and hit any grounded point nothing happens then the battery's path is interrupted for the removal of the positive clamp.
You should also not fail to follow the positive cable down and find the connection at the other end which will terminate at either a separate solenoid or an integrated one mounted on the starter and remove the cable to clean those terminals too since either end of the chain of connections could cause problems. 
Doing this will alos let you see where the starter is mounted. They are nestled with the engine with their working end hidden in the transmission bell housing which is easy to recognize. With the transverse drive train of your car, the starter is most likely located between the engine and front of the car although it could be sandwiched between the firewall and engine; much less 'fun' to remove. The starter will be held by a maximum of three bolts which may be of different lengths so try to keep them in some kind of order otherwise remounting the starter could be annoying. Once out of the car, clean the bolt threads to make the reassembly easier and I usually use a dot of clean oil on the threads which keeps them free of rust and easier to remove in the future. Bolts should never bind to produce a tight fit, they act as springs and stretch slightly when properly torqued.
If you plan on doing your own light maintenance (that would include starter or other auxilliary items), I suggest you invest in an aftermarket service manual such as those published by Haynes or Chilton which will be invaluable in answering many questions you might have in the future and cna be had on line or at any auto parts store. They cost from ~$20-$30 US and are detailed enough to allow you to tackle about anything you can do without having a shop available.

You might want to consider buying a 'remanufactured' starter through an chain auto parts store, one that offers a 'lifetime' warranty on them. This could save you 1/3-2/3 of the cost of new and when done properly, will be as durable as new.

My peugeot 206 diesel keeps cutting out, now it

In my opinion cut off problem occurs if engine is not getting sufficient fuel and/or air. Clean the air filter, turbo filter and fuel filter. Check the continuity of diesel flow from filter to hdi pump. If you haven't found any problem there then the possibily the hdi pump and injectors section needs to be checked. If the car has done more than 100000 miles then clean inlet and outlet manifolds including check of turbo and EGR valve. Do everything whatever possible before you take your car to garage. If there is no luck then let your car diagnosed and check any error code recorded by ecu.

My girlfriend was driving to class when her speedometer, blinkers and cd player stopped working. She pulled into a parking lot and turned it off and then back on, the car didnt run. When i got there 10-15...

ok, try cleaning the battery posts, and if its older then three years change the battery. Once everything is ok check the charging system of the vehicle. The reason your power steering/brakes went out is the engine was off, power sterring works of a pulley on the engine and the power booster for the brakes works off the engine vacuum.

Car stopped working

I had a very similar problem with my 2005 accord a few months ago. Try jump starting the car with jumper cables. If the car starts and everything works normally, then the battery is probably your problem. This turned out to be my problem. Good luck.
