I had the same problem with my 96 grand cherokee limited a while back, when the mechanic checked it out he said it was a sensor. He changed the sensor then it worked fine for about a couple of days until it happened again.
Then the mechanic checked it out again and saw that the alternator was not longer working properly. He said that the battery is what holds the power to start the car and somehow charge the alternator which later charges the battery back, this happens back and forth. Long story short, got the alternator fixed and have had no problem with the car since december.

I have no brake light/parking lights, I have lost power to the radio, the dash, powerlocks, and interior/dome lights. Could this be that my 50 AMP Fuse(red -parking & interior lights) is blown ?

I usually pick one component that has a problem, look up wiring diagram, check voltage and ground for that component. Sometimes fixing one component or circuit, may or may not fix the others? It just depends on the vehicle?

Often the interior lights are looped on one circuit.
It only takes one bad connection to stop the 12v volts flowing. I would start with any connection that can be exposed to water or rust. Doors would be a good start.
Grab yourself a cheap multimeter and probe each connection (after removing the light bulb / lamp) for the presence of 12 volts DC.
If you have an electrical drawing use the 50/50 rule. ie check for power at the 50% point (halfway in the drawn circuit). If there is power at that point, check again at the next approximate 50% point ie downstream, continuing until you narrow down the area wit the problem. NOTE: If there is no power at the initial 50% point (the very first place you checked) work your way backwards (or upstream) in the circuit towards the fuse box, again using the same 50/50 rule.
If you are not confident, take it to a reputable automobile electrician.
Good luck,

Unfortunatly ther is no generic code when your engine light is on you have to go to your local garage and have the truck scanned to get the code

Interior lights don't 'FLASH'... just the PARKING lights.... that means the burglar alarm is active - NATURAL and NORMAL that the engine doesn't start. Find a 'COMPENTENT' Hyundai Technician - have it properly diagnosed!... then you'll know what the problem is.
