Hi Mike!
2003 Santa fe has no headlights, but marker lights are on, no dash, no radio, no heat or a.c. controls. Dome light is on. Also zero starter activity, crickets when turning the key.
Checked battery, it's putting out 12v as is the cabling. I'm stumped!

To add more:
Checked all fuses in both boxes, inside and out, nothing is blown, relays also seem to be fine. Since so many components are out, I am not sure.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you had the main battey load tested and also make sure the connections are clean

battery was tested and charged at a local store. I can't see any voltage drops when ignition is turned, made sure terminals and connectors were good also.

Is there a security light on or check engine light?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No dash lights at all, only some light when door is open and marker lights when headlights are turned on
Hyundai Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Shawn, you got it. Unfortunately it's night time and freezing outside, so tomorrow will have to be the time I get to that.
I'm no expert, but when testing the 120, I should be able to put the multimeter on the screws holding it in and get current correct? Or would it only show when ignition is turned? Tips on testing the fuses as well?
Hyundai Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I would do all checks with key in the on position, and yes power on both sides and you should get battery voltage at each point, and no worries on the time, sometimes these things take a few days and ill be here step by step to help get it going
