Question about Cars & Trucks
Have tried the release switch in the glove box as well as on bith remotes to see if they will reset but with no luck.
Probably would be a idea to remove the carpet cover that hides the cable that releases the boot. if you lay the rear seats down you can look into the boot from the rear seats of the car. the problem may be in the cable that normally dosent get used until there is a issue with the remote on the key. before going to the test run via the rear seats and having some one shut the boot while watching its operation. check where the cable attaches to the latch and get some one to operate the manual cable that is located in the glove box . check that it has full travel and isn't broken or something hasn't fallen into its way of travel. lubricate with lithum grease the moving parts of the mechanism. manually operate the latch by hand then try to shut the boot. but with the panel off and the mechanism exposed some one using the cable in the glove box and you viewing its operation it should become clearer what the issue is

Should be able to take it apart and take the battery out for 15-30 seconds or longer. Then put it back in. While your at it, you might as well change the battery but doing this will reset it.

The trunk lock actuator is probably in valet mode. Remove the mechanical key on the side of your smart key and turn the trunk tumbler(ibeleive to the left). and put it in normal mode and it sh0uld start working. Your owner's manual will tell you about this operation. hope i have been helpful

If you want to know the where the water is coming from, water is entering from the passenger side front cowl. ( the vent below the windshield that sucks the air in for your a/c and heat) there is a recall where chevy installs a plate under the cowl and diverts water out. There is your answer.

Hi, W/D here.
I'm not really familiar with your car, but I thought that I should offer this up as a Good Samaritan....
If your rear seat(s) will flip down, do so and open the trunk from the inside. Then determine why the over ride switch isn't working. The trunk button should be worked manually when you get the trunk open. Lubricate the lock and locking mechanisms with graphite, and not oil. You can get graphite at Lowe's, H/Depot or similar, in the lock dept. You can also get it at craft supply stores (Hobby Lobby). They sell it there for the Cub Scouts "Pinewood Derby" race cars.
Hope that this helped a little, --W/D--

The 2003 Sonata is equipped with a 'starter KILL' burglar alarm system with disables the starting system (using a N/C 'contacts' configuration instead of a N/O contacts configuration). N/C=Normally closed, and N/O=Normally open contacts. When the alarm goes off with a MY Sonata, the only way to DISARM it is with the key fob (remote) originally programmed for it (unless you purchase a new remote & have it programmed for the vehicle at an authorized Hyundai Service Department). NOTE: So long as the keyless entry & burglar alarm system is functioning/operating normally, the alarm will keep going off and the STARTER KILL function will still prevent you from starting the vehicle. One option is left without purchasing a new remote and having it programmed.
1. When the alarm goes off, get into the vehicle and insert the ignition key into the ignition.
2. Turn the key to the 'RUN' position (NOT the ACC position) and wait for the alarm to STOP (usually about 3 to 5 minutes).
3. The engine should then start using the ignition key.
If this procedure doesn't work, the problem will need further diagnosis by a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician.
Hope this helps
