2007 Elantra stuck in drive, key in ignition, car won't lock

My 2007 elantra hasn't had any issues until today. I stopped at the gas station and the car would not allow me to put it into park. I can now only put it in neutral or drive. I am planning on taking it to the shop tomorrow, but the other issue is that I cannot remove the key. Either the transmission being in drive, the key in the ignition, or the combination of the two is causing another problem, the car will not lock. Everytime i lock the doors they automatically unlock.
I don't know what to do. At this point my options are reduced to: leaving an unlocked car with the keys in the ignition out in front of my house or at the unattended auto repair shop.

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.

2007 Hyundai elantra trunk button not working and power locks and interior lights don't work


It's a surprise that an Elantra would last 10 years. Time to get this issue to a mechanic, and trade the car in. Look for a car that will last without issues and problems. I owned a new Hyundai Elantra for four years, and paid for it twice from so many electrical, steering, and suspension issues. I now drive an Infinity for the past 7 years, drove it for 160,000 miles, and not a single repair bill. Just maintenance. Other cars you may consider are Volkswagen, Volvo, Lexus, and Audi.

I have a 2010 Hyundai Elantra. From time to time, I can not get the steering column to lock when I turn off the car. Then, the battery is drained later, because of this. why does this happen?


The Ignition Cylinder may at fault. If it's preventing the column from locking, even though you are able to remove the key, the ignition may actually still be on.

Except for the cars computer, alarm system, headlights, and door locks, as well as temporary draws such as the dome light, radio and power windows, everything depends in the ignition to be on to function.

If somehow the ignition is still on, then all of the cars systems may be drawing power from the battery at a rate sufficient enough to drain the battery.

I would take it to a professional, electrical issues can be tricky and if ignored could lead to severe electrical damage.

Stuck ignition key


You will need to remove the lock cylinder and take it to a qualified locksmith. Access the cylinder by removing the trim panels on the steering column. After you remove the bolts securing the cylinder, there is push-tab on the underside of the cylinder that must be depressed with a small screwdriver to remove the cylinder.

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the


There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.

It seems like bad or loose wire connection at starting electrical circuit.
Check also fuse, ignition switch, neutral switch,
Have your car inspected at a dealer or a garage as soon as you can - it might be unsafe to drive.
