Question about 2013 Hyundai Accent SE

2 Answers

Does the keyless entry operate the hatch lock as well?

I have a 2013 Accent hatchback and recently noticed that when I use the keyless entry to lock/unlock the car, the status of the hatch doesn't change. IE: when I lock the car, if the hatch is unlocked it remains unlocked. I'm currently using the keyed lock to keep things secured. Is this normal and I just haven't payed attention? I bought the car new and would think I would have noticed this over the past few years...

    Original poster here. I took a look and figured out the problem.

    There's a bar that connects the locking mechanism to the electronics side of things. The bar fits into a plastic piece on the lock and that ties it all together. When the keyless is pressed, the bar moves and locks/unlocks the hatch. The plastic piece worked itself loose from the bar. Easily accessible from the interior trunk release. I've attached a couple pictures, the one with the white plastic piece attached to the bar is the correct position.

Keyless Entry System Description and Operation (with Accessory 2 Way Remote)
Keyless Entry System Description and Operation (without Accessory 2 Way remote)

The keyless entry system is a vehicle entry device. The keyless entry system is used in conjunction with the body control module (BCM) to remotely activate certain vehicle features. Keyless entry will lock/unlock the doors/liftgate when a corresponding button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed. This is accomplished by the transmitter sending a radio frequency to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). The RCDLR interprets the signal and activates the requested function via a serial data message to the BCM. A low transmitter or vehicle battery or radio frequency (RF) interference from aftermarket devices, such as 2-way radios, power inverters, computers, etc., may cause a system malfunction. High RF traffic areas may also cause interference that could lead to a malfunction. Keyless entry allows you to operate the following components:
• Door locks
• Liftgate lock
• Vehicle locator/Panic alarm
• Illuminated entry lamps
• Remote vehicle start
The keyless entry system has the following components:
• Keyless entry transmitters
• Keyless entry antenna
• 2 Way Advanced Remote Start RCDLR
• BCM

Your best bet , take it to a GM dealer .

check the rear hatch electric lock. It may have a wire that came loose from shutting the door hard over time. Hope this helps, good luck.

Yes, had the same problem on my 05, The mechanism that operates the latch can fail, this part costs about $300 dollars and is only available at the dealer but you can save the labor and do it yourself.

Hatch-back door will not open


I can say I have had the same problem, only the back doors and the rear hatch/glass won't open using keyless remote from them freezing this Winter.  The front two driver/passenger doors will unlock with keyless remote but none of the rear doors, hatch or glass.  Since I had to replace the stoplight bulbs in the rear with one not working and I don't need a ticket on Memorial Day weekend (need to replace 2 at the same time is wise according to any good mechanic), I had to get the rear hatch open to get to the lamp assembly and replace the bulbs.  My thinking was that since my two front locks were opening but no others and my keyless remotes are working, it has to be a fuse or relay that is not working!  So, I talked with a NAPA rep and he said the "Day running lights" relay can be a temporary fix to get the rear locks open to replace the bulbs.  I looked up in the owners manual where both relay's are located and removed the "Locked" relay and "Day running lights" relay and put the "Day running lights" into the same slot where the "Locked" relay was not operating and it worked!  I got the doors unlocked and replaced my stoplight bubs replaced.  Now, I have a new problem, my Tahoe won't start!!  I'm assuming the relay wasn't supposed to stay in the wrong slot when operating the vehicle because I started the truck, and it started and died-started and died-same and again.  I think the wrong fuse can be used to fix another problem like a fuse.  But, a fuse you can leave in and deal with one operation in the vehicle not working until you can replace the fuse later when you purchase it.  But, not a relay!  Now, I think the confused electronics cause another component (possibly the fuel pump relay) to burn out with the wrong relay in place of another when the vehicle operates.  I should have known but I was so glad to get the doors open after two months and it being Memorial Day weekend.  Now I have to find out what else is wrong so don't make that mistake to avoid the same predicament.  Better to get the relay ordered and replaced than to have this happen to you.

Hyundai Accent Keyless entry failiure - entry without alarm?


You might try Opening the Door and Opening the Hood and Disconnecting the Battery. This should reset the System. If this is the Factory Keyless Entry, There is a Relay and a Fuse for this. Check them and see if they are Bad or Blown.
