    DOORS WON'T LOCK OR UNLOCK WITH EITHER REMOTE. THE ALARM SYSTEM ACTIVATES AND DEACTIVATES. THE REMOTE START ALSO WORKS

    No valet button, no remote, how can I turn alarm off?

  • Anonymous Mar 28, 2014

    There is no beep when locking or unlocking the doors. Car starts on its own at odd hours.

Look under the dash for a small silver toggle switch....this is a disable switch for the remote start portion of the system..you may have kicked it / bumped it with your foot, causing the remote start portion to be deactivated. Just flip the switch the opposite way and try again..
Also, there may have been a pin style switch installed under the hood...Check to see if it is bent or broken, if it is, simply disconnect it and insulate the wire that was going to it. 
This wire is used as a safety to keep the vehicle from remote starting while the hood is up..to keep people from being injured if the remote start is activated while the engine is being worked on. 
Have whatever shop installed the system replace your pinswitch if that is the problem.

MY 2003 HYUNDAI SANTA FE WILL SOMETIMES NOT START. YOU TURN THE KEY AND NOTHING HAPPENS. FROM MY LIMITED EXPERIENCE IT SOUNDS LIKE A STARTER PROBLEM. BUT HOW CAN I MAKE SURE ITS THE STARTER AND NOT THE...


You could take the starter out and take it to a place like autozone and they can test it for free.They even test the system I believe when the car is still running.All stores have different testing equipment.

I have a new prestige APS-57C remote starter installed in a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe and I have a problem with the factory alarm going off every once and awhile. The majority of the time everything is fine,...


Maybe the installer did not hook up the remote starter unit to disarm the factory security system upon entry or remote-starting. Ask the installer to double check that part of the install as it would cause the factory security to trigger even though you unlocked the vehicle with the remote start unit remote.
