Your original keys had a computer chip in them that is programed to your car's computer and you will have to have a dealership reprogram your new keys to match your car's computer. or if you still have the original ignition lock you can reinstall it and contact your local dealership and give them your car's Vin# which is located on title or vehicle registration. And most dealerships can make you a new ignition key. Then your car should sta

I had this problem. Through some research and asking some service personnel I found out it is a fairly easy fix. You will need to buy a new relay switch for the door locks. The dealer will/should know what you need. They are located (two of them, buy two and replace both) on the back side of the fuse box. It is not that easy to get back there. I had to lay on my back with my head up under the instrument panel. They are visible and can be removed if you take some time and be careful. Once I knew what I was looking at, it was easy to replace and the remote works like a charm. You can go to an auto supply, like Autozone, and they should have a schematic to show you where these relays are.

If the car is parked on a flat surface, and a potential liquid spill has occured in the gear selector, make sure the car is engaged securely in park.

hi from uk please try this ? with key removed try gently turning steerwheel to the right if you feel a slight spring in steering ? hold on the spring and insert key it should work and release lockand turn ign on ? if steering is springing on left ? try as above the same method not unusual for steer lock to prevent turning key as the steering even in straight position ? the necessity to gently release load on lock is req'd to allow key to turn/unlock the steering lock from the steering column practice doing the above each time you fit key to unlock steering and tuning ign on to start hope this helps

I own a 2005 Hyundai Sonata as well and this has happened to me. All the doors automatically lock as I pull on the door handle to get back in the car. This happened twice in the winter of 2007-2008, then it didn't happen again until this past December 2009 and now today in January 2010.
I wonder if it has something to do with cold temperatures? Or maybe that's when I'm more likely to leave my keys in the ignition with the car running!
But it is a big pain, one time my two year old was in the car and the fire department had to come pry a door open! I started carrying the box with the unlock button in my coat but even this would not unlock the doors this morning. Only the spare key will do.
I am taking my car into the dealer to take a look. And I'm going to write a complaint to Hyundai. This is unacceptable.
