No disconnecting the battery won't reset the transmitters. Make sure the battery is correct and installed properly. Hold the lock and unlock buttons together for 7 - 10 seconds, the horn should chirp 3 times when its good. If this doesn't occur then the transmitter is faulty.

    Your wrong, I disconnected the battery today for 5 min. Reconnected the battery and programed the transmitter as recommended in owners manual. I also did this before disconnecting the battery ,many times before and it wouldn't work. I tried it after reconnecting the battery and it worked.. Maybe it reset the receiver I don't know. But it works now.

1999 Sonata lock code changed

the remote programming may have been erased-with the doors locking automatically it is a feature that should be able to be changed-you will have to check the owners manual on how to change that feature
as far as the remote-you will have to contact a hyundai dealer about reprogramming the remote-it may also just need a battery
