Question about Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

I got the Viper 5101 remote start installed in my 2007 Hyundai Sante Fe at best buy. The remote works for auto start, but will only lock and unlock the doors sometimes. It seems like if I unlock or lock the doors with the button on the door the remote won't work after that. Sometimes it doesn't work even if I used the remote the previous times. The lights flash and the horn honks, but nothing happens with the locks. They don't even sounds like they are trying to unlock.

I would take it back and tell them they need to fix it. it sounds like a wire for the lock/unlock may of fallen off or there is a problem with the remote stare module. wires tend to fall off if all the used were crimp connectors and didn't solder the wires together.

SOURCE: Hyundai 2005 Sante Fe Trunk lock will not open

hello ,If its the rear hach handle you are talking it is due to rust build up on the spring behind the handle. The only way to fix is to get a new handle it will come with the spring and all. Make sure if you do get this handle and you get it painted to match your paint that the body shop does not take it apart to paint cause it is really hard to get the spring back in and thay may brake it on you.

SOURCE: how much does it cost to replace a fuel pump on 04

fuel pumps are kindda expensive, especially on import vehicles. Number one cause for fuel pump failures is heat. When your rinding with the fuel below half, the pump is party exposed inside the fuel tank and when exposed for periods of time it tends to heat up and then gradually burns out cause you to replace it. It's ok to go below half but not to often, I hope it helped abit.

You need to check the pulse coming from the crank sensor preferably using an osiliscope.
The sensor may have been damaged when re-installing the transmission.

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.

Where is the auxiliary input in 2007 sante fe elite


If you don't see anything on the radio saying "auxiliary output" with a little earphone jack then you aren't Aux ready.

You might be able to go to a stereo shop and have them install an auxiliary output plug. They will pull the factory stereo out and splice/plug in an output wire that you can plug your iPod into.

My drivers side rear door will not open from the inside or outside


I had exact problem Santa Fe 2007 2008 lock was stuck in locked position and door would not open from inside or out. All other doors would unlock with auto key remote. Carefully work the inside lock towards the open position as you lock and unlock the door with the remote. As you press unlock try to assist the lock to open. I did this a few times and the lock became free to the open position and all worked perfectly after this.
