Default 08 Santa Fe will not start, battery is good

I recently had a new coil pack put in my 2008 Santa Fe, about a week ago. Got up for work this morning and it would not turn over. It makes the clicking noise but will not catch. I jump started it and it worked. Got out of work and it wouldn't start again, got a jump start and took it to pep boys where they tested the battery as good. Could it be a shortage somewhere from the previous work done?

Cyclic clicks when key held to "CRANK" is dead battery...

Go with both of the above suggestions. New battery and clean every ground connection under the hood you can find to bare metal.

+1 on the battery suggestion. If the OEM battery on your '08 has lasted this long, you're way ahead of most of us. Makes me wonder about the success of that test. I'd have it checked again (elsewhere), but believe me, either you need a new battery or you will shortly, so truly, you're not really out any money by replacing it. It's one of the rare times where I wouldn't feel bad about just outright replacing a part to see if the problem goes away.

and from what I've read and been told... summer heat is a lot harder on a battery than winter's cold. I'm still on my original battery.. probably have to replace it soon.
