Question about DEI Valet Keyless Entry System
Own a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe and it has a Valet remote starter/alarm installed. Starter recently stopped working... alarm and lock/unlock still work fine. The lights flash when using alarm but not when trying to start car?
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.
