    I have the same problem with my 2002 Sonata! Replaced the batteries in the remotes & checked the fuses, both are fine!

    I have the same problem. The doors will un-lock, but they won't lock with the button on the drivers door. All the doors need to be locked manually.

    same problem here in ny. doors will open with remote and door switch but will not lock with either on my 2004 sonata

    Just the passenger side backseat door lock does not lock or unlock with the fob or driver door control. If is open, it will remain open and if locked, it will remain locked unless I manually lock or unlock it. Does the 5 yr / 60K warranty cover it?

    2006 Sonata. I have to manually lock the real passenger door. I cannot lock with remote or with the door button.
    Does the warranty cover this? I am still under 5yr/60K.

I had this problem. Through some research and asking some service personnel I found out it is a fairly easy fix. You will need to buy a new relay switch for the door locks. The dealer will/should know what you need. They are located (two of them, buy two and replace both) on the back side of the fuse box. It is not that easy to get back there. I had to lay on my back with my head up under the instrument panel. They are visible and can be removed if you take some time and be careful. Once I knew what I was looking at, it was easy to replace and the remote works like a charm. You can go to an auto supply, like Autozone, and they should have a schematic to show you where these relays are.

    Thank you very much for this solution fun2fly. The service guys did not know how to solve the problem, but following your solution I found online also the electric scheme, went to eBay and bought the relay (for $ 9.90) and convinced the service guys to do just as you said. It was solved in 10 seconds, just as much the service guy needed to reach and replace the relay. Fantastic, thank you FixYa, too!

I own a 2005 NF 3.3ltr Sonata Elite. The vehicle has only traveled 47,000 kilometers. The problem is the door locking mechanism seems to have an intermittent locking/unlocking fault or the computer is at fault.

Once the door locks are activated by remote or on the door consol, the rear passenger door will lock and stay locked for minutes, days or weeks, it cannot be opened externally or internal by any means. Also other door/doors will not lock at random.

Hyundai have replaced two actuators including the main unit in the driver’s door but the problem continues randomly on various doors.

Hyundai customer service in Australia (NSW) said it is not possible to repair faults that cannot be seen or tested by the dealership, so unless it happens and some else witnesses it from the dealership it wont be dealt with, plus it is apparently not consider a safety issue????

Is not a car door considered an escape hatch and therefore makes it a safety problem or the vehicle unroadworthy

SOURCE: My 2003 Hyundai Sonata Door locks will not lock using

I have exactly the same problem. Keyfob will unlock the doors, but will only arm the alarm once the doors have been locked manually. Central locking button on driver side door no longer works, but I hear the clicking sound you're referring to.
I took it to a mechanic, and he seemed pretty sure it was a bad master window / door lock switch. The price he quoted to replace it was $255 plus tax, and I could never bite the bullet and pay for the work, so I've just been living with the problem.
Have you solved your situation yet?

Yes, I would rule out a fuse or relay, because the other locks work. It would not have a separate fuse and relay for that one door. Probably is the motor, as the body shop advised.

The remote will not open the trunk or the doors and I can't open the trunk with the trunk release in the car.


Make sure you have good batteries in your key fob. Also, there is a trunk, lock, and unlock relay. If anyone of those are bad you can have this problem.

All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

Remote control won't lock/unlock doors, but will open the trunk. What;s wrong?


There is a fuse box under the right rear seat cushion behind the driver. In that box is a 10 amp mini fuse marked "TRUNK DR RELEASE". That is the fuse that powers your remote receiver. If that fuse is good, the receiver may have failed. To remove the seat cushion, pull the front of the cushion up and then forward.

Possible issue with the remote controller unit - main board or sub assemblies. The intermittent behavior seems to indicate that the board is erratic to detect at the same time the individual locks work at times.
So make sure all the connectors to the door and to the main board controller are tight. You can remove the main unit and check for any loose connections or clogging, specially water in all the door units or in main unit. If so dry and test.
Otherwise the main unit is a suspect.
