Question about Hyundai Santa Fe
Jena: According to http://www.obd-codes.com/p0507: " P0507 code is one that's sometimes triggered on vehicles that have electronic throttle control. That is, they don't have a regular throttle cable from the accelerator pedal to the engine. They rely on sensors and electronics to control the throttle.
In this case, the P0507 DTC (diagnostic trouble code) is triggered when the PCM (powertrain control module) detects an engine idle speed that is greater than the desired (pre-programmed) RPM. In the case of GM vehicles (and possibly others) if the idle speed is over 200 rpm higher than expected, this code will be set.
Potential Symptoms Most likely you'll notice the idle speed is higher than normal. There are potentially other symptoms as well. Of course, when trouble codes are set, the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) illuminates.
Causes A P0507 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
If you have an advanced scan tool that can interact with the car, command the idle higher and lower to see if the engine responds appropriately. Also check the PCV valve to see if it's blocked and needs to be replaced. Check the IAC (idle air controller) if equipped, verify it's operation. If available, try swapping in a new throttle body to see if that fixes the problem. On Nissan Altimas and possibly other vehicles the problem may be fixed by having the dealer perform an idle air relearn procedure, or other relearn procedures."
So, Jena, you start with the cheapest possible solutions. Go to YouTube and look up how to detect a vacuum leak. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CPqbaSgcok Buy a can of throttle body cleaner and get one of the auto store people to show you how to get to the throttle body (basically you use a screwdriver and take off the huge air hose). Then clean the throttle body. If you don't get rid of the problem, watch the YouTube video on how to clean the EGR Valve. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TB1E9opb87Y While you are at the auto parts store, you will probably want to buy an PCV valve. This may solve your problem even without a mechanic! :)

If you live in the US, take it to qany Auto Zone store and thy will read the codes off for you, I would suspect any right thinking competitor would do the same, check if you don't have one near by.
Hope this is of some help.

This is from the factory service manual of your car:
There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Translation you need the dealer to do this.

try resetting adaptive values to see if that helps. remove both battery cable terminals and hold them together for about 30 seconds to discharge all power. reconnect and drive.
