Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
If the battery is fully charged, you may need a starter.

If you turn on your head light switch, and the lights are bright, you know your new battery has a good charge. If you can, remove your serpentine belt, and try to spin your alternator pulley by hand. If it is binding, or jammed, it could be keeping your engine from turning over. If it seems frozen or binding, replace the alternator. check all other accesories too, for binding. too. Once you check all pulleys, you can try to briefly start the car , with the belt off, and see if you have success

I had the same problem on my Dodge Caravan. When driving, all of a sudden the gauges would flake out and all the dummy lights would come on but car would remain running. Checked the battery and the alternator, both were fine. I finally figured out that it was the battery. Funny, the post that goes inside the battery had come loose. I was able to pull it out. Once I replaced the battery, the problem went away.

SOURCE: car want start
check the fuel pump. If yo pull the fuel line to the carb and turn on the ignition you should get fuel pumping out of the line. Also check fuel filter under the right side of the car. If its clogged its not going to start.

Drive the car to the auto parts store and have them test the battery and alternator for proper charge. You probably just bought a dud, even though they are new. Doesn't happen much but does happen.

Hi, I'm assuming you car does not crank. If it does crank, please ignore the advice below and get back to me with what it does when you turn the key.
There is a relay in the circuit for your security system. Make sure the security light is not on. Then try swapping that relay with another similar relay, such as the horn relay. The relay is either in the engine compartment or the trunk relay box.
If this works, replace the relay.
If this doesn't work, the problem may be your ignition switch. You can test the switch and wiring by interrogating the relay socket with a 12 volt test light. connect the test light clip to a ground point on the engine or chassis and probe the relay socket with the tip of the light. There should be one hot terminal with the key off and 2 hot terminals with the key turned to start. If you don't get 2 hot terminals with the key turned to start, the ignition switch or wire from the switch is bad.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
