If the key has no buttons, it is a Valet Key which usually doesn't start the car as it has no chip. There are also Emergency keys which are flat in a case and do have the chips to start.

The other possibility is that the battery is flat.

To have all system monitors reset themselves... a standard driving procedure has to be followed. Please see the link for a Accent model to give you an idea of what to do. If you can't find the exact procedure for your vehicle, the link for the Accent model should work for your Elantra.

PS: Check to make sure the spark plugs leads went to the correct cylinder.
