Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

My car alarm will not work (disarm) with the remote. when I use the key to open the door the alarm goes off and car won't start. I've repleaced the remote battery, with no luck. The red light on remote flashes when the button is pushed. What's the problem and can I bypass the remote somehow?

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!

Disarm car alarm without remote merc


I do know that if you put the key in the ignition after you open the door and cycle the key from off to on 3 times fast within 5 seconds the alarm will disarm. Whether or not it is for good is unknown since you have to lock your doors again at some point. Your remote is discontinued by Subaru, but the the newer remote for the 2005 to 2007 models will work on your car, unless you already have one. I hope this info helps!

'95 Nissan Maxima-Alarm goes off-then windows & doors won't work


Open the drivers door panel and locate the inside lock cylinder, there is an alarm switch that wrap around it with an electrical wire came out, it might also have another one on the passenger side in some other model . What it does is arm and disarm the alarm when you use the mechanical key and in some other model, it also lower the window when you disarm. The switch might pop out of place or deteriorated due to age. Good luck all.
