does the luck and won't start come at same time?
actually there is not way to get rid of the antitheft but if you have two keys for htis car try using only one key some time copies just disprogram the system and if you can't do anything i will recomend you to call a mobile locksmith guy they have the machine to reprogram your key and it is so much shiper than towing it to dealer and pay their crazy prices

I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

it sounds like the immobilizer is faulty. this will shut off the electrical feed to the starter motor. you will need to take it to a garage to get this fixed.
hope this helps.

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

Please dont worry yourself so much the security locks needs to be reprogrammed to enable it work effectively. Same happens to other vehicles as well.
Consult Hyundai garage close to you or if you have it in your manual.
