try disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes so the electrical system reboots itself with a clean start. That might fix it. IU would give it 10 to 15 minutes disconnected before reconnecting and trying it. Further to that i would say take it to the dealer and send the bill to the place that did your oil change
I would find the alarm unit and either dissconnect it or replace the ni-cads.
At this age the rechargeable batteries will have failed so as it gets cold at night, the alarm thinks the voltage drop is a burglar!
So set off the alarm :
Your Sonata is equipped with a "Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm" system. When the Burglar Alarm is activated, it KILLS the starting system through the used of a relay called the "Burglar Alarm Relay". This mode prevents engine starting with the key. Solution #1 Disarm the system with the Keyless Remote (key fob) If you don't have this remote (or its battery is dead) replace the battery & try disarming again. Solution #2 Enter the vehicle & insert the key in the ignition and turn the ignition switch to 'RUN'. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the alarm stops. You should then be able to start the engine.
Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.
The 'Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm System" is activated. You must 'Disarm' the system using the Keyless Entry Remove (Key Fob) to "Reset" the system. The reason the engine won't start is due to the burglar alarm - it has a "Starter Kill" circuit which is activated when the alarm is activated. The alarm must be DEactivated to DEactivate the 'Starter Kill' circuit. Another way to start the engine is to get in the car, put the key in the ignition and turn it to 'ON" and wait 3 to 5 minutes until the emergency flashers stop/turn off. Afterward, you should be able to start the engine. NOTE: This does NOT reset the burglar alarm. It will go off again when you enter the vehicle without using the remote/key fob.
First of all, has the burglar alarm been activated? If so, you can enter the vehicle with the key, put the key in the ignition and turn it to 'RUN' or 'ON" and then wait 3 to 5 minutes for the burglar alarm to stop. You should then be able to start the engine. You still need to have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose the problem with the remote (Keyless Entry & Alarm System).
Check under the hood. Often, there is a small switch that needs to be closed when the hood is shut. This switch sometimes comes loose and when the hood is closed the button is never pushed. Find the magic button and reattach it to it's mount so that the hood will press it when the hood is closed and that should solve the problem. This button works with the alarm system.
The OE alarm is part of the ETACS To disable it: 1) Sound the alarm 2) Put the key in the ignition and turn to start 3) Hold there until the alarm turns off You should now be able to start the vehicle. The alarm will remain dis-armed until armed through RKE
There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.
You need to first look under the drivers side dash area near the hood release/fuse panel area and see if there is a valet switch. The switch will look like a little toggle or a push switch. After you locate it, turn the ignition switch to the on position(dont start it) and flick the valet to the opposite position it is in now. If done correctly in most cases the red system light will stay a constant instead of off or blinking indicating you are in valet mode. Next try to start the engine. If this doesnt work you need to remove the alarm system and repair the ignition switch wiring or replace the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The aftermarket alarm cuts into the ignition switch wires and bypasses the start circuit through the alarm module. When disarmed the alarm completes the circuit and allows the car to start. Good luck hope this helps and please rate this.
