In 2002 they discontinued the external trans filter. So your vehicle could have the external filter. If you look next to the trans dipstick tube, on top of the trans case you will see the filter or you will see just a spot where the filter use to go before they eliminated it. Yes, the filter does llok like a regular engine oil filter. If the trans does not have the external filter ontop then there is no service to the filter to be done, the only recommendation is to bring vehicle into a shop to have the fluid flushed. By the way, make SURE you use the correct Hyundai SP-III trans fluid (not dexron/mercon). This fluid is specific to the Hyundai and can not be purchased from auto parts stores, only the dealership. Failure to use SP-III will cause premature wear to the internal bands and clutches.

I have an 03 Santa Fe as well and just had the exact thing happen to me. One day, it just wouldn't turn over at all and I had to have it towed to the dealer. They replaced the "crank shaft position sensor" and now the car is fine. I am not sure if this is your problem but it might be worthwhile asking someone to check it out.

I have just had the same problem but solved it.
Firstly, I went to Halfords and purchased a spray tin of Bradex Easy Start.
Then loosen off the air filter cover and give a quick spray inside.
Turn the engine over and bingo, it should start.

What you need to look for is whether the smoke from the exhaust is white. If it is, there is too much unburnt fuek in the engine and the problem lies with the glow plus.

Had same problem. 2002 Santa Fe. It is the fuse that says Tail Light (rt). They are connected, as well as with the visor light. My visor broke a while back, so I took it out, leaving the wires to dangle. Apparently, the wires were touching up top and shorting out. I took out the connector up there and now no problems.

Lift the back door & you will see 2 screws securing the tail light assembly, take them out & gently wiggle the assembly to release the 2 rubber locating pins, & that will give you access to all the globes in the tail light assembly.
