    Thanks for your help but it didn't work, due to the fact there was dirt or gunk inside, we had it towed and fixed.Don't know how dirt got in as there is no food or drink taken inside the car.

    Did you try to turn the steering wheel one way or the other slightly while trying to turn the key?

  • Anonymous Mar 16, 2014

    I left the keys in the ignition of a 2012 Hyundai elantra. When I went into the garage several hours later I discovered that the parking lights were still on. I tried to start the car and nothing. I took the key out of the ignition and still the parking lights disn't turn off. I checked several minutes later and they still were on. Tried to start the car again and nothing. Removed both fuse box covers and don't see anything wrong, but I really don't know what I'm looking for. Parking lights have turned off on car. In addition my key fob isn't working and neither is the spare one. Any idea what's going on?

Wayneard is correct. with one hand on the ignition key try to turn the key towards start. With your other hand hold the steering wheel and turn slightly in either direction. This will take the locking pressure off the ignition cylinder. To prevent this from re-occuring be sure steering wheel is in a straight position before removing key from cylinder. Then be sure not to use steering wheel as a lifting point to get out of the car. If you do the wheel will move into a locked position, which is what you are experiencing now. Keep me posted

2002 Hyundai Elantra how do I reset the alarm system


If your alarm is factory-installed, first, you will need to insert the key in the ignition in the "ON" position. Leave it there and wait until the alarm stop sounding. It may take between thirty seconds and one-and-a-half minute.

Second. Once the alarm stop, turn the key to the left like if you were going to take it out, but don't remove the key.

Third. Wait Exactly 10 seconds and turn the car on.

This will disable the alarm until it is engaged again using the remote.

Why can't I turn the key?


Possibly the steering wheel is turned, jamming the wheel lock in position. Try turning the wheel to either side while trying to turn the key.

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the


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.

Light warning buzzer constantly on


Have you checked that the headlight switch is in the right position? Are the headlights or parking lights still on when the key is removed?

If so, then rotate the lamp switch to the correct position and the buzzer will go off. Headlights and parking lights are not controlled through the key circuits.

2004 hyundai elantra starter


You culd be having more than one problem. First if you are having problem putting the car in park. The car may not actually be fully in park and therefore the neutral safety switch is active and telling to car you are in revers or in gear. If this is true then your car won't start for safety reasons. Try putting it in Neutral and see if it starts then. Ormay have a neutal safety switch that is bad. Can you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start?
