Question about 2005 Hyundai Elantra

Car alarm going off too often

I recently removed the battery from my wife's 2005 Elantra to change the headlamps. The battery went back in without difficulty, but now when we arm the car alarm it goes off at random times. Is there something I can reset that will stop this?

Interesting!... Did you bend the hood when you took the battery out? Here's a possible cause. On the right hand side of the engine compartment is a hood switch (part of the burglar alarm system.. here's a pic)
car alarm going off too often - 0fc0bfa.jpg On the underside of the hood is a rubber button which depresses this switch when you close the hood. If it's missing, then the switch is not being depressed all the way (and can cause the symptom you are experiencing). OR, you bent the hood and the rubber button on the underside of the hood is not pushing the switch all the way down (a wind gust can lift the hood just enough to activate this switch) which sets off the alarm. Hope this helps.

Wow that sounds very possible though it happens when the car is not even being used . and the battery seems to be getting drained . everything is electric in this car so he is very careful about not leaving anything on.
Thank u for your help

I am having the same problem right now, and I have the 2005 model as well, however for me, it seems like it only happens when it is extremely cold outside.

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.

My 2005 Hyundai Elantra is going through headlights like there's no tomorrow!


I have found this many times wit some aftermarket bulbs, but the most common problem is that because the wire clip that holds the bulb is so hard to get to (unless you do it every day) it may get bent while trying to remove it. When this happens the bulb vibrates and will blow just from the vibration. Wiggle the bulb to see if it feels loose, if so go to the dealer and buy a new clip. you will need to remove the headlamp to replace it.

It's probably not your alternator. The airbag light would be on for an overvoltage condition.

How do you change a front headlight on a 2005 hyundai elantra


This is an 'inside' job. Open the hood and you will see on the back of the light a clip. Remove this and the bulb will fall out. BUT you should wear gloves to replace the new bulb! Never touch it with bare hands! This is not an easy job! You will more than likely think you have the wroung part!
