Programming remote lock for 2001 Haundai Santa Fe.

Replaced battery in my remote lock for a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe and can not get the remote re-programmed. After placing the Alarm Module switch in the SET position, pressing the lock button, and then placing the Alarm Module switch in the OFF position, it still does not work. I tried with the ignition in the ON position and without the Ignition ON.

SOURCE: 2002 hyundai santa fe 2.7 multi misfire number 2and 5 cylinders

OK IS THERE IS ACTUALLY A mis-FIRE THIS VEHICLE SHOULD BE SHAKING DURING IDLE AND ACCELERATION IF IT IS, here is what you do get a noid light this used to check injector pulse. This vehicle will set a misfire code if injector is not functioning efficiently or bad. A noid light is like a test light bulb can be bought at almost any auto store.SART UP VEHICLE AND DISCONNECT THE INJECTOR WIRE TO THE CYLINDER THAT'S mis-FIRING AND CONNECT noid LIKE TO ELECTRICAL PLUG. DO THIS ONE CYLINDER AT A TIME. The nod light should have a steady flickering light/consistent pattern of flickering. If there is Gap/irratic flickering or no flickering BINGO you have found your problem. NO FLICKERING= bad/broken injector wire if not broken BAD COMPUTER/ECU. IF THE FLICKERING IS CONSISTENT /GOOD = BAD INJECTOR..replace injector and solve the misfire problem. However is all the components tested are ALL GOOD. Then the only other SOURCE for a mis-fire is the camshaft sensor that provides reference for injector pulse and the crankshaft sensor provide reference for Spark pulse. JUST ON A LAST NOTE: make sure all oils are getting electrical power to them. Good Luck I know this is alot of info at once. Contact me if you need more help. Thanks fr using FIX YA

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.

The procedures you list require the Hyundai Keyless Remote programming module, which you don't have. This module is proprietary - only Hyundai Dealerships have it. There is a 10 pin connector under the dash (next to the DLC - Data Link Connector) which is used to connect the Keyless Remote Programming Module. This module has two switch positions "Ready" and "SAVE". When the switch is place in the 'SAVE" position, that's when the keyless remotes are activated to send their 'codes' to the Electronic Time and Control System (ETACS). The module's switch is then set to "Ready" and the remote is tested to see if it works properly.

Again, the remotes can only be programmed by a Hyundai Technician (ETACS - Electronis Time and Alarm Control System).

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.

I need instructions to program keyless entry remote for 2002 Hundai Santa Fe

For a 1994 to 2006 Sonata, a 2001 to 2006 Elantra, a 2000 to 2006 XG350 or a 2001 to 2006 Santa Fe, you will need to access alarm system control module. On most of those vehicles it is located on the driver's side fascia panel. But on the Sonata, the facia panel is in the center.

  • 2 Once you have found this module, you will want to ensure that the memory switch is in the OFF position. Then turn the ignition on.
  • 3 Wait 5 seconds and set the memory switch to SET position and then press the remote transmitter lock button to send the code to the alarm system control module.
  • 4 If you would like to program a second remote transmitter then you will need to press second remote transmitter lock button.
  • 5 Next set the memory switch to off, then turn the ignition off. You can confirm your programming by locking and unlocking the vehicle with both of the remotes. good luck my friend

    HYUNDAI Santa Fe 55plate.After replacing the battery my remote does not work,ie the led does not come on.I have checked the polarity and now both remotes are inoperable .The car can still be locked using...

    Assuming the batteries are good and have a good connection inside the remotes, then I'd say replace the remotes with new ones and have the Hyundai Service Department program them to your vehicle.

    How do I reprogram the key fob on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe without having to pay the fee at the dealership?

    Well, you basically have only 3 choices:
    1. Pay the fee at the dealership
    2. Purchase the high-dollar equipment that is required to perform the programming procedure
    3. Forget about adding another key fob to tor vehicle.

    Hello. Where is that ETACS box located under the dash on a 2001 hyundai santa fe? I have the fuse box panel off but cannot find the etacs box to sitch to off for remote programming.

    I live in Australia so mine is a right-hand-drive Santa Fe 2001. I wonder if this is why so many people seem to have so much trouble locating this box. On a left-hand-drive the box may be more over the footwell instead of near the side wall. In my car it is actually behind the fuse box near the right-hand side-wall. The switch is actually not visible as it is located on the right hand side of the ETACS box (near the side-wall). I had to locate it by feel. Once thought I had located the switch I held my finger pressed up against it for a while, to litterally get an imprint of the switch. The position towards the driver appears to be the "off" position, and the position towards the front of the car the "set" position. I turned the ignition key on (2 clicks), flicked the switch to the "set" position, pressed the lock button (I watched the flash on the remote, but heard nothing from the car), turned the ignition key to "off" and pressed the remote lock button again, then reset the switch on the ETACS box back to it's original position. That's it. My remote is working now. Hope this helps someone else...

    That is a REALLY INTERESTING problem you have. Let me get this straight.... The remote WILL lock the doors, BUT WON'T OPEN them? If that's the case, take the vehicle into Hyundai and have it daignosed - WIERD problem.
