Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

The key will not turn in the ignition of my 2009 Santa Fe.

I have a remote start on the vehicle and it will start when I use that but I can`t turn the key when I put it in the ignition. I`ve tried everything - turning the steering wheel and jiggling the key while doing that, thurned the steering wheel left and right but no matter what I do the key simply will not move or turn in the ignition. EWven the tow truck driver couldn't figure it out and said he`s never seen this before. Any ideas/suggestions???

Vehicle will start with remote but not with key. the theft light flashes with key


Try locking and unlocking the doors with the key fob to see if it corrects the problem. You can also try using the key and locking and unlocking the drivers door only

I removed the battery and now the car won't start


'I disconnected the car battery/changed the car battery and now my car won't start'

Another common question on Fixya.
You've done nothing wrong. It's simply that the immobiliser doesn't recognise the key.

Put the key into the ignition. Turn the ignition on. Press the LOCK button twice on your remote. Wait 1 minute.

Turn the ignition off and press the UNLOCK button on the remote a couple of times. This will disarm the immobiliser.

The key should be recognised and your vehicle will start.

When I put the key in the ignition it doesn't try to start everything else comes on then shuts off. I drove it yesterday but now it won't work


The remote starter module is not getting an electrical signal when you turn the key to the on position after remote stating the vehicle. When you depress the brake without turning the key on the vehicle shuts down. The remote module thinks the key is off even when you turn it on. There is a loose connection or the remote start device is defective.

Ignition locked


The ignition lock cylinder tumblers get in a bind all the time on GM vehicles. It probably has little to do with inseting the wrong key. Try inserting the correct key and "jiggle" the key in the lock. You may have to jiggle it up and down and rotate (or try to rotate) the lock cylinder forward and backward. It will probably work just fine if you can wiggle it with just the right combination. If not, you may have a damaged lock cylinder and you will have to replace it. - most likely nothing you did....I change at least two or three of these things every week...VERY COMMON.

I have an o3 ford escape with an aftermarket autopage remote start system.when i try to use the remote start it flashes the parking lights and all the accesories fire up but will not ingauge the starter....


the issue is the securilock system I installed one in my 03. You need a spare coded key (one that starts the vehicle) and a Bulldog 791 kit. ths will store the spare key and tell the vehicle it is not being stolen. Its the only way unless you want to leave your key in the ignition. BTW, the Theft light is on when you engage the remote started w/o the key in the ignition, Been there.

Car starts with remote starter. The start procedure with key?


Well, it sounds like your ignition switch is bad or the remote starter you have also has an alarm with a starter immobilizer. Do you have the owners manual to your remote starter? If not you can always remove the immobilizer part of the alarm by hooking the start wire back together from the ignition switch that is cut when you hook it up.
