I had a problem not unlike this in my santa fe 1.9td uk spec.
my car had been sitting for a few months and when i returned to drive it again the same problem came to light.
i also rep[lsaced the key fob.
it could be one of two things.
firstly the systen might neen re-set. if you disconnect the battery for 2 hours then attach ti again it might work.
if this fails it might be the actuator in one of the doors. if it is faulty then it only semi closes the lock, but it then thinks that has to lock again. and locks the door.
hope this helps.

4x4 diesel. Why can't doors be unlocked or locked?


their is a way to do it but recheck battery first sometimes the relearn process doesnt work or the fob itself is dead also if auto /remote start will need dealer to flash fob ---- 2002 santa fe and followed programming instructions and eventually was able to program the new remote. But, I did not realize I had to program my existing remote at the same time. Since, I have retried programming both remotes many times with no success--the new one works, but the old one won't. The instructions were: 1) Locate switch under dash, behind fuse box; 2) Turn ignition switch on, but don't start engine; 3) Wait 5 seconds, set memory switch to SET position; 4) Press remote LOCK button; press second remote transmitter LOCK button; 5) Set memory switch to OFF; 6) Switch ignition OFF. 7) Confirm programming by locking and unlocking vehicle.

Hard starting.


for starters you need to use the remote to open/close the doors or the engine will not recognise the key.you will need to check compresion (min 170) and put car on diagnostic computer.
my advice is GET RID of the worst car EVER to come from korea.even dealers will not buy them......16mpg is good ,worse is about 8mpg.....I USED TO WORK FOR HYUNDAI.(if you paid around £500 then what the hell)

Hyundai santa fe 2002 remote key fob locking ok but fails to unlock. suspect micro switch faulty. can it be replaced?


Do the doors lock normally when using the manual switch on the dirver's door panel? If so, the problem is in the ETACS module. Here's the wiring diagram:
