Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent
Hi, Beverly. I've seen this issue occur due to a defective crank sensor. Often they fail when hot and then work normally again once they've cooled off. This could also be caused by a coolant temperature sensor (or other engine management sensor) reading incorrectly. In all the cases I've mentioned, the check engine lamp being illuminated is typical.
Here's how I'd recommend approaching this:
1. Is your check engine lamp on or has it been coming on? If so, check for trouble codes. Chances are you'll have a code related to the specific cause of your problems.
2. When the engine won't start, make a not of whether the check engine lamp illuminates when you turn the ignition to the "on" position. If not, there's likely an issue preventing your engine control module (ECM) from powering on.
3. Check to see whether you have spark at the spark plugs. To do this, simply make use of an old spark plug (or purchase a new one if you desire). Remove the #1 wire from the #1 plug and install the old plug in the wire end and lay the plug on the intake manifold. While an assistant cranks the engine, observe to see whether you have spark at the plug. If not, suspect that the ECM is not seeing the information it needs to determine when to fire the coils (most notably, the crank sensor). If so, suspect an issue with the one of the sensors for the fuel injection system.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
