That's exactly why it won't start. You can either switch the ingition lock back to the original one so you can use the right key. Or, you can sync the new key with the computer. To do this you or someone else will have to use a gm tech-2 scanner, snap-on modis or an otc genisys scanner. Your local dealer or good repair shop should be able to fix you up. Now, there is another way. The passkey system works on resistance from the chip. In you steering colum there is a 2-wire plug going to the ignition lock. If you pull it out of the colum and cut the plug off. You can pop the chip out of the original key and solder the wires to it. Just make sure you don't heat the chip up to much. After doing this you can use any $10 standard gm ignition lock instead of the expensive ones that use a chipped key.

There is a chip in the key on the newer cars. The dealer should be able to send your information to Hyundai and order a new key. Pricey. Check with another dealer.

Short circuit probably not the problem. The pass key system is not being disabled making the car inoperable, thats why it will not crank. Either you are using a key that does not have the correct resistance(black chip in key) or if it is the same key you always used then the pass key sensor went bad. I believe it is in the steering column and a qualified mechanic could help you there.
