Keyless Remote Issue! Any darned car with a remote
Keyless Remote Issue! Where do you find a replacement for the rubberlike film insert which goes inside the remote? The raised areas of the insert are the buttons you push. I have wikied, googled, and ebayed this and I find nothing. The rubber insert gets old and hard and the buttons fall off and out and the otherwise good remote is then useless. I know I can buy another old one on ebay for 10 bucks and then pay a dealer to program it but someone out there makes the things and could sell me one for nearly nothing.

Your Sonata is equipped with a "Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm" system. When the Burglar Alarm is activated, it KILLS the starting system through the used of a relay called the "Burglar Alarm Relay". This mode prevents engine starting with the key. Solution #1 Disarm the system with the Keyless Remote (key fob) If you don't have this remote (or its battery is dead) replace the battery & try disarming again. Solution #2 Enter the vehicle & insert the key in the ignition and turn the ignition switch to 'RUN'. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the alarm stops. You should then be able to start the engine.

The 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a standard key and
remote setup with a separate remote fob. However, the 2004 to 2009 Dodge
Caravan and Grand Caravan use a combination key and remote on one
device. To program a new keyless entry remote for the 1997 to 2003 Dodge
Caravan, you must have at least one functional remote, which is
required to enter synchronization mode. To program the combination key
for the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan, you must have two functional
combination keys. If you do not, you'll need to see an authorized Dodge
dealer for keyless entry programming assistance.
2004 to 2009 Caravan Programming Instructions
Insert one of your working combination keys into the
ignition. Turn it to "On"; leave it in this position for about 10
seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn it to "Off" and remove it.
Insert your second working combination key into the ignition
within 15 seconds of removing the previous key. Turn it to "On". After
10 seconds, you'll hear a chime and the "Theft" light will begin to
flash, entering synchronization mode. Turn the key to "Off" and remove
Insert the combination key you want to program. Turn it to
"On." After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime; then the "Theft" light will
turn off. When the light turns off, the combination key--including the
key and the remote--is programmed.
Repeat Step Three for each combination key you want to
program. A total of eight can be programmed.
I had the same problem. If your car is still under warranty, simply go to the dealer and have the keyless entry remotes replaced. If your car is not under warranty and you do not want to fork over the hefty fee for new remotes, you should be able to repair them yourself.
If you open your keyless remotes, you will likely find that the contacts which hold the battery in place have come unsoldered. Basically, the problem lies in the fact that Daimler/Chrysler used a cold soldering method when adhering the battery contact to the circuit board in some of these remotes. Under normal wear, these cold soldered contacts will eventually bust loose.
In order to repair the remote(s), you will need a soldering iron and solder.
1)Remove the screw from the back of the remote. Pry apart the two halves of the remote using a dime or penny.
2)Remove the circuit board, placing it battery side up. Remove the battery.
3)Carefully place the battery holders contact pins back into their respective holes.
4)Take care to put a small amount of solder on each of the loose contact pins. Put a small bead in both the back and front of each contact pin.
5)Replace the battery and put the circuit board back into the remote. Test to make sure the remote is functioning properly, then snap the back of the remote on and replace the screw.
