Question about 2000 Hyundai Sonata
Hi, is there a 'remote keyless (fob)' programmed for this vehicle? That's the only way to DE-arm the immobilizer (anti-theft) feature (based on US specs). Unless you have this key fob (keyless entry remote... which must also be programmed for this vehicle), the only other way is wait 5 minutes with the existing key in the ignition, then it should start (US specs). You will still need to have an 'ACTIVE' keyless remote programmed for this vehicle... otherwise, you'll continue to run into this problem.

Its possible that yopu need to "reprograming" the keyless...
Actually on 2003 Hyundai Sonata GLS i had the same problem... there is a manufactuer alarm that should set off when you put the key in and turn.. do that one more time (BUT makng sure alarm goes off then do it again) then dont take the key out turn offthen set it in the ACC postion in the ignition after the alarm goes off then wait about 5 to 10 min and turn on by then it should have reprogramed and kick on.. The third time is when you should be waiting for the programming to be down... its very very important that you do the programming on the third time... because the computers are built in the car and not built like most other american made cars.
Are you check the THEFT-ALARM System? This is design to provide protection from unauthorized entry. In there you have three status: Armed, Alarm and Disarmed.
To ARMED,. remove the ignition key from ignition switch; make sure that the engine hood and trunk are locked. Lock the doors usin the transmitter keyless system. After of this steps, turn signal lamp is blink to indicate that the system is armed.
For ALARM stage,will be activated if any o front or rear door is opened without using key transmitter. The trunk lid is openened without key or hood is opened.
To DISARM the system... drivers or passenger door is unlocked using the key; drivers or passenger door in unlocked depressing the LOCK ot UNLOCK button from transmitter key. Same that ARMED, signla lights blink toadvise that the system is disamred.
