2007 Hyundai Tiburon won't start Sign In

Hi there! I need help starting my car. I have a 2007 Hyundai Tiburon.
In the morning around 10ish I went to start my car and it wouldn't start. It turns over and makes a sound like it is trying to start. I tried turning and holding the key to the end but never held it for more than six seconds and it just kept doing that and would not start. I tried jump starting it with no luck however. All the electric components work fine. I ended up putting it in neutral moving it out of the way and using my other car.
A few hours later, around 2ish without doing anything to the car(didn't leave the battery charging) I went to start it up and it started up first try no problem.
Then a couple more hours later around 8ish I went to start it again and it would not start again. Tried jump starting it again but also with no success. Any ideas on what my problem could be? Also the car has about 80k miles on it if that's needed. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Also the engine shakes a good amount when trying to start the car and the dashboard likes seem almost as if they are slightly flickering and then becomes solid when you stop trying to start it.

Sounds like a no start issue, but you should have your battery tested to be sure it is good.

If it cranks good, but the engine doesn't want to start, read this:

Post your results. Also have the engine controller scanned to see if any trouble codes are stored before you disconnect the battery to have it tested. Write down the code number(s).

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

The battery ended up testing fine but I found out the problem. On my V4 engine on the right side between the battery and the engine there is a little plug. I'm not sure what it is but it looks like it connects to some sort of coil. While the car was running and I was looking under the hood I accidentally pulled the plug out and the car shut off. I tried starting it and sure enough it was making that sound like it was turning over but wouldn't start. I plugged the plug back in and the car started. No problem. To pull out the plug you have to push in on the sides to release it. I guess it had somehow unclicked and wouldn't start and ended up occasionally reconnecting but not clicking in and that's why I was somehow able to start it. I will post back if that ends up not being the problem but I'm 99% sure that's what it was. Thank you for the help.

You left this thing unplugged and had any other questions? Find out what it is exactly and then go first to Hyundai to get a new pigtail end so solder in if needed.

Tons of wired or other things plug in all over a vehicle and break. No all are "PUSH" something but assorted ways they stay attached. Since this was so easy apparently to just accidentally prevent the vehicle from running I would do it or get that done properly,
