Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I hate to hear that this has happened to you. This is the thing. Because the battery has been hooked up wrong, you have electrical issues for sure on the vehicle. When you deal with electrical issues on a car, it is a pain in the neck. Also, they are very hard to pinpoint when they are damaged. As you know, they are a lot of wires in your vehicle. Here is the thing though. You have a major problem likely because you have fried some things. And to be honest, it could be anything. I am sorry for saying this but it is true. Your vehicle needs air, fuel, and fire to start. Your ignition system is a complicated system that reads precise measurements of air, fuel, and fire to start the car. You really need to have it scanned at a diagnostics shop. They can put it on the computer and find what all is wrong. More then likely, it is a few things. The computer may be fried. If it is close to the battery, it probably is. Almost all parts are electrical. I am sorry for the bad news but this is your best bet. Even for a professional mechanic, without a machine, it is like finding a needle in a hay stack. You can check your fuses and see if any has blew for now. If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.
