    I’ve just been out to my sons non-starting Hyundai.

    Turn the key absolutely nothing not a sound.

    Getting 12.6 V across the battery, turn the key and you can hear the relay pulling in in the fuse box, but no sound from the solenoid or the starter motor. The voltage doesn’t change when you turn the key to the start position.

    Any thoughts? Starter motor?

    Thanks!

    Relay wire on the solenoid has a bad connection perhaps.

    Had the same bother with my old Rover. I took the lead off, cleaned with contact cleaner, back on and it cranked.

    As above, and check the battery voltage reading when you attempt to crank.

    Voltage doesn't move when cranking....stays at 12.6V

    Give the solenoid a whack. Maybe just a tap. :rolleyes:

    Check any heavy duty fuses close to the battery positive terminal.

    Get some one to turn key to crank and you test for power on the wire to the starter soleniod . making sure you are away from moving parts just in case it spins over

    Relay not making; poor connection between relay and solenoid (is solenoid clicking in?), if it is motor open circuit or brushes worn out.

    It might be worth wedging the key in the cranking position, then going round tapping various things in the circuit - but keep well clear of any rotating parts, just in case it starts.

    Had a good look at this afternoon, power was getting to the solenoid but there was no action or sound, contacts were all clean so a new starter motor was obtained, no problem to fit and problem cured.
    Thanks all for your help and advice.

    Worn out brushes then, or less likely a break in the windings.
