Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Sonata
The problem is in the starting system circuit. The ignition switch applies a ground to the starter relay (located under the hood near the battery in the fuse/relay box), it, it turn, applies power to the starter solenoid which pushes the starter bendix gear into the ring gear on the engine flywheel. When the bendix gear is fully inserted into the ring gear, the solenoid also makes contact with the battery cable connection (internally in the starter solenoid) and applies battery power to the starter motor, which, in turn cranks the engine. A non-crank condition can be caused by a malfunction in any of these components in the starter system, not to mention a bad ground circuit between the engine and the battery/chassis. Since you didn't mention whether or not there was any 'click' when the ignition switch is turned to the 'start' position, I'd look at that circuit first.

I have the same car and had the same problem ( exactly the same !! )
the positive cable battery connection was so corroded it wouldn't turn the engine but had enough juice flowing for the radio ...so take our the battery , clean with sand paper , reconnect and grease !!
I was laughing at myself ! DAAAA !
