Hyundai elantra1999 wagon -engine crank but do not
When you disconnect battery with key on you are clearing the code that will tell you what component is bad. The computer must recognize a component is over or under the normal parameters at least 3 times before it sets a code. Check some garages around where you live because some don't charge you to scan the computers or monitor the data stream to determine whats causing the problem. I know its going to be difficult but if possible , when the problem occurs again try to get it to a garage and ask them to pull up any diagnostic codes before you turn the ignition switch off.

Hyundai air bag warning light
Depending on type of SRST, the air bag module may have detected something that in case of accident, it may prevent the airbags to deploy.
Have the car scanned for error codes. If the the warning light is ON, there sure is an error code.
Remember that some manufacturers (according to local laws), program the ECM SRST system to issue a warning at certain mileage or time, just to remind you that it is time to replace the air bag assemblies at the steering wheel and dashboard...
(Ouch... this may be expensive!)

I have a 99 hyundai elantra that dies and won'y restart when the engine is warm
Question, is the engine light on? I had a eagle talon with a similar mitsu engine as yours along with similar issues. I didn't have any overheating problems, nor did the gague seem any different. Also, the check engine light never came on. Like your car, when it was hot outside after driving or if the engine was at operating temperature it would not restart unless the engine cooled properly. I didn't have this issue so much in the winter or if I drove in the morning when it was colder, or on short trips that didn't raise the temperature of the engine much... mainly the summer was the worst, having to spend 20-40 minutes letting it cool down. The car would act like it would start but the coolant switch was making the car flood. The car had a high gas smell when attempting to restart the motor when hot due to this. Once it cooled it started perfectly, and ran perfectly fine. It was just restarting while hot that was impossible. My mechanic found the issue in less than 5 minutes saying it was somewhat common for the coolant switch to scale over due to cooling system neglect. The mechanic asked if I used tap water to fill the coolant system, which I did, and that in turn caused the minerals from the water to crust over the switch (along with my entire cooling system). That with 9 year old coolant and it being low helped to crust the switch over as well. A quick dip of the crusted over part of the switch in a household mineral remover (not the entire switch) and a coolant system flush (with comercial coolant system flush) fixed the issue and removed a LOT of mineral deposits too. Basically, it cost me $15 in labor plus the cost of materials to flush and fill the cooling system (and a case of beer for not screwing me over, which he could have easily). Hope that helps..

My 1999 hyundai sonata's headlights
As you can see from the illistration/wiring diagram, other than the actual wiring, there are two fuses (one for left & the other for right), two relays one for Low beam & one for High beam), and finally the multi-function switch which must be working to provide a ground for the relays (High & Low Beams). You can Go to www.hmaservice.com
and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc.
