Experience with this problem points to several possible causes. First, hood switch is improperly adjusted or rubber button on the underside of the hood which strikes this switch is missing or worn out (does the 'answer back' feature (horn toot) occur when you press the "lock" button on the keyless remote twice?). If it doesn't, this is the first place to look -- is the hood bent out of shape? Often I have found the hood adjustment is SO CLOSE to the hood switch being 'CLOSED', that a simple gust of WIND can set off the alarm.
Next, each door and the trunk have switches which must be in their proper positions (closed -- Open Circuit communication with the ETACS module) for the burglar alarm to SET Active/ON. The problem could be at any one of these switches, not to mention the ETACS module itself. Best solution:Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

Testimonial: "Thanks. Dealer hasn't been helpful. I'll see how far I can go before I run out of patiencs."
I just did this on our 2007 Sonata. 1. open the glove box. On both sides of the glove box, there is a black tab which prevents the glove box from opening to far. The Chilton manual says to remove these, but that is more difficult then simply pressing inward on the sides of the glove box to release them from the channel. Now the glove box should open even more. Next, remove the piston arm from the right side of the glove box. You can do this by removing the panel on the side of the dash, but you first need to open the passenger door. You can also just use a screwdriver or other tool to slip the piston of without removing the dash side panel. Now with the glove box hanging fully open, you can see the cabin filter box. There are tabs on both sides of the front that you simply press together in order to slide the filter out of the box. This whole process from beginning to end should only take about 10 minutes and is very simple.
