i have the same problem but mine is the sensor that is under the dash that is faulty so i had them disable it untill i can get a part that they need to order so i would have your dealer check the sensor .. if it is under warranty they will replace it for free

Please dont worry yourself so much the security locks needs to be reprogrammed to enable it work effectively. Same happens to other vehicles as well.
Consult Hyundai garage close to you or if you have it in your manual.

Do the doors lock normally when using the manual switch on the dirver's door panel? If so, the problem is in the ETACS module. Here's the wiring diagram:

First find little notch on side of FOB that will allow you to open the FOB itself. Next insert mini flathead and twist hard until unti snaps open. Hopefully you didnt break it yet. Then pull out circuitboard within FOB. nEXT remove battery and press red button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace Battery then put circuitry back in place. Now, with circuitry in place hold all three buttons while simultaneously pressing the red circuit overload reset button on the board. Then, press the thre buttons in this exact order ( this is a very important step) press the door unlock buttton twice before waiting three seconds then pressing the hood open button 3 times followed by a 5 second delay then pressing lock> But wait, before you press lock you must "chime" this code to the song "waiting for a girl like you" by foreigner. The code will then automatically find your cars code, get married and then you will be in luck - many baby remotes will start to fall from your dash board. If this doesnt work it is probably due to the fact that you have more of a hard rocker or redneck remote and follow all prior procedures but replacethe song with only "welcome to the jungle" or tears in my beer". If this still doesnt work, grab a beer and share it generously with your remote. When this doesnt work, (as I suspect at this point it wont) take your remote and after finishing the 12 pak, take the remote to your local hyundai dealer and threaten to throw up in the main sales room if they dont program it for you. Mae sure you slur the fact that your dad owns Hyundai (even though you are as white as can be) and that you will sue them all out of work if they dont do this for you ...plus you then proceed to puke on the front door handle and tell the customers " this is what you have to look forward to if you get oneof these BEutieeeesss hahahaha" while rubbing your puke infested hands all overtheir nice shirts and blouses, ....this I promise will work. And you should have a nicely programmed remote the next morning after waking up in the drunk tank and the officer gives you a ride home because the mayor of "yourtown" is your neighbor and your supposed to be at home cooking a barbeque for him that after....HIC...that after...HIC that ...noon.
