Question about 1997 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

The automatic locks on my 1997 Hyundai Sonata will not unlock all the way, so I have to use a clothes hanger to stick inside of the door to yank the lock all the way up so that I can open and close my doors (driver and passenger sides). So my question is, what can I do to fix my locks so that they will lock and unlock properly?

HOW PROGRAM THE KEY LESS ENTRY FOR SONATA 2012

How to Program Keyless Entry Remotes in a Hyundai Sonata By Christian Killian, eHow Contributor
20Found This Helpful The keyless entry system in your Hyundai Sonata is part of the factory alarm system. If you have to replace a lost or damaged remote, reprogramming will be necessary. The remote is important because not only does it lock and unlock the doors, it also arms and disarms that factory alarm when you open or close your car doors. New remotes are available from any Hyundai dealer. While they will program it for you, you can do it yourself and save a programming fee.

Step 1: Locate the fuse panel under the dash on the driver's side of the car. Just below it is the control module for the factory alarm system. Open the cover on the alarm system control module and locate the memory switch inside.
(Kleophaus Livingston/Demand Media) Step 2: Verify that the switch is in the "Off" position; if it is not, switch it to the "Off" position. This is important for the system to understand what you want it to do when you move to the programming mode.

Step 3: Insert the key into the ignition of your Sonata and turn the key to the "On" position. Wait for 60 seconds, then move the memory switch inside the control module to "Set."
(Kleophaus Livingston/Demand Media) Step 4: Depress and hold the "Lock" button on your remote for one full minute. This allows the remote and the control module to communicate and sync. Release the "Lock" button and turn the memory switch in the control module back to the "Off" position.
(Kleophaus Livingston/Demand Media) Step 5: Turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position and test the remote by pressing the "Lock" or "Unlock" button, verifying that the doors do lock or unlock.

2005 hyundai sonata--car locks itself with keys in ignition


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.

2002 HYUNDAI SONATA. KEY FOBS WILL UNLOCK ALL


Replace the "lock" relay, found behind the fuse box. You have to stick your head where the gas pedal is, and look at the top end of the back of the fuse panel. There are 2 small square plastic boxes. Unplug them, spray them with electrical cleaning spray, and switch their spots. If everything works, there was some contact problem, if door will now lock but not unlock, one of the relays is bad. Part number "HMC DECO 95225 - 38300".

The electric door lock won't disengage on the drivers side door. My grandson was playing with it, locking and unlocking repeatedly.


Apparently he burned out the 'current limiter' in the door lock/unlock actuator... it will need to be replaced.

Auto Door Locks


Automatic door locks on the 2001 Sonata doesn't exist. The doors are locked manually (by the driver) or by using the Keless Remote. To answer your question, YES, there is a separate relay for each function .. this means there is a relay which LOCKS the doors, and there is a separate relay which UNLOCKS the doors. They are located side-by-side on the I/P junction box (I/P = Instrument Panel).
They are both labeled "Lock", but one "UNLOCKS" while the other one 'LOCKS'.
