There has been no previous transmission issues fluid is checked regularly. Does not matter what gear the car is in nothing works.

I have the same problem on my 2002 2.7L V6 Santa Fe. After starting up the vehicle, it can run for a few kilometer but with some noise in the engine. Then, the car behaves like in neutral regardless which gear is in.
I will have to shut it off, then wait for a minute or so to re-start. After starting up, then it will run for a minute or so, then the problem returns.

Any luck in diagnostic?

Do you have any warning lights on? Have you confirmed that the trans fluid is full?

There is no warning light in the dash board. I checked the transmission fluid and it is full. There is no burning smell on the fluid.
I sent this car to the dealership to flush and replace the transmission fluid earlier. The new transmission fluid has only run for about 50,000 km. My Santa Fe just passed 200 k km and I follow the recommended maintenance schedule.

Okay, check to make sure the linkage is properly attached and moving the trans shift levers. It it is, the next thing would be to check line pressure to make sure the pump is working and producing enough pressure to engage the transmission. Sounds like either an input shaft (Turbine) speed sensor or toque converter clutch solenoid
