Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon
Here's how you fix this:
- Open the remote, and take a piece of paper (something small, I used a crushed straw wrapper) and put it on top of the battery. It needs to make the remote somewhat difficult to close, but it needs to close.
- Make sure the red light flashes EVERY time you press unlock/lock. Your car might lock/unlock now. If it doesn't, move on.
- Get into the car somehow. Yes, the alarm might go off. Ignore it, put the key in the ignition and turn it to ACC. Then and hold both buttons for a few seconds. The light should continuously flash.
- Turn the key off, and wait for the alarm to stop. Then press unlock. If it works, congrats! No more issue! If not, you may need to take it to the dealer for service.
I just fixed my remotes this way. The contacts wear out, and the battery box literally fell off of one of the remotes. Forcing the battery box against the circuit board is the free way to fix it. Remotes aren't too cheap! Good luck!
