In the boot near the battery and the rear panel of the car you find a loose white plug with 2 wires to it,It wont be plugged into anything but may be tucked up somewhere,Make sure that isnt corroded or in any water which may of leaked into the boot,This plug is from the transit relay which is fitted when the cars leave the factory.This enables the car to be started and driven and to be stored without the battery going flat,But if those 2 wires become shorted out or wet it will give the same fault you are experiencing....clean the wires and connecters or cut off the plug and seperately insulate the wires.

I have two blank chip keys coming for my 2010 sante-fe and i need the key code in order to get these keys cut.

You need to take them to your local Hyundai dealership with proof of ownership and the car documents. Expensive process, some even have to send them away to be programmed. If you have premium recovery membership, they can come to you for emergency key cutting.

Not what you want to hear but the dealership will cut a nwe one with proof of ownership....registration and license to match. otherwise, you may be able to call in a locksmith who may be able to at least get you in the vehicle...maybe even cut a key...good luck

I ordered a 2nd key for my 2005 crossfire that i bought used. of course they only had 1 key. my local dealer ordered a new key by using the vin number. after 5 weeks & $135.00, the key does not work in...

Go have a key cut at a locksmith, even if it would start you car , due to anti-theft, and give them that one, to make a good key, just an idea..

I bought my 1999 Lexus used it only came with one key which is now broken beyond repair. The dealer can fix me up for $900 to $1500 dollars. OUCH! Anyway around this?

The problem is - nobody except dealer can cut blank key , I don't think even locksmith can do it.
Even if you can find a blank key on eBay , might be hard to find someone to cut it.
Regarding the programming , there is probably a way to do it manually.
I'll look in to it tomorrow if you interested.(Meaning programming) .

My roommate lost the key to my car, how do i get a spare?

If you bought the car new, the dealer from whom you purchased it will have the key code on file and they can cut you a new one. If may even appear on your paperwork. If you didn't buy it new, then you should determine where it sold new, should be in the owners manual, and prove ownership to that dealer and they can cut you a new key.

The key gets stuck in the ignition sometimes it turns and other times it doesn't. could it be the transponder?

The first thing to check is to carefully examine the ignition key. If it is worn down, or even slightly bent, get a new key cut. If you don't have a key in good shape to copy from, your Toyota dealer can cut one, if they know your VIN number. If your key looks good, the most likely suspect is your ignition lock cylinder. You can try lubing it with a little graphite lock lube, but no WD-40 or anything!

Need key cut for jaguar x-type

hey cheeriospapy,

Unfortunately the key you bought on-line is going to be no good, jaguar keys cannot be cut by any after-market company. When ever a customer comes into the dealership he has to give the vin number to the parts department. They then send an order to the company that cuts the keys specifically to the car. Thats why know one will be able to cut it.

They key also has to be programed to the car which the dealership charges .5 hrs worth of labor to do. So needless to say a replacement key is fairly expensive.
