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.

2005 accent tail lights wont shut off

Pull that fuse or pull tail lamp relay, that should kill the lamps till you figure out the problem? You also have left an right tail lamp fuses, underhood fuse box. I don't know if tail lamp relay is faulty? Another concern, see the bottom wire on left of tail lamp relay, that is a ground controlled by the headlamp/multifunction switch, there could be a problem with that wire circuit or the multifunction switch. At the moment, I'm hoping just faulty relay.

I have a 2005 hydaia accent that crank up but won't stay run but when I put it in drive it kills

Car 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.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Hyundai accent 2001 no spark at start but once started runs fine!

I had this problem on my 2001 accent too. It turned out to be the front O2 sensor. Try disconnecting that by the exhaust manifold. If it starts right up that's your problem
