Did you verify the new altenator was charging? Was the battery light on when running? Will it start with a jump start?

no i will do nothing no dash light
Hyundai Mechanic: Gene, Auto Service Technician replied 3 months ago

Does the battery still have a good charge/pass a load test, will the dash light up if you jump the battery? Are the battery connections tight?

Hyundai Mechanic: Gene, Auto Service Technician replied 3 months ago

Either there is a connection issue with the battery like a bad ground or the battery is discharged from the altenator not charging or the battery has a bad cell.Have the battery load tested, recheck to make sure the connections to the battery are tight and clean, If they are and the battery passes a load test then there would be a main fuse blown, Check all fuses to make sure one isnt popped that supplies power to the interior of the vehicle.

were is the main fuse to the car
Hyundai Mechanic: Gene, Auto Service Technician replied 3 months ago

Follow the positive battery cable, there is more than one main fuse, follow it to the fuse panel and inspect them all.
