Re: replace my control remote for my ignition started...
There should be a button some where that you can push while the key is in the on position and it will stop the alarm for that ignition cycle. Then i reccomend taking the alarm out or take it to a reputable electronics shop and they can tell you what manufacture and model is.

you need to first install one of factory key into ignition.turn ignition switch on position for 5 seconds.switch off the ignition and remove key.wait 7 seconds insert new key into ignition switch.and switch ignition on until alarm system warning lamp will flash twice mean key programmed. switch ignition off if warning light illuminate for 3 seconds to confirm or flash 3 times indicate registration has failed. if you fail on programming new key let dealership reprogram new keys using diagnostic equipment.
We had tacho installation problem with out 98 lancer with no tacho on the panel. we got a aftermarket one but when we had to wiring it up it needed a tacho signle from the ignition coil. The ignition coil is built into the distributor which made it hard. The 2002 is the same distributor setup as the 98 so you can get step by step instructions with diagrams and pictures from my page, you will see an link that says Mitsubishi Tacho installation. website is www.sureyya.biz let me know if you find it useful.
When the alarm is activated, there is an Anti-Theft device (Starter Kill Relay) which prevents anyone from starting the engine using the key (about 5 minutes). If you place the key in the ignition and turn the key to the "RUN" position, wait 5 minutes (approx), the engine should then be able to start. If not, the problem may be the ETACS (Electronic Time & Alarm Control System) module. If it does start, the problem may simply be that the battery in the keyless remote is weak/dead, or the remote needs to be programmed again for that vehicle. Only the remote can 'DEACTIVATE' the alarm. Best solution, take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).
I would suggest you obtain the install instructions from the dealer and check that it was wired into the system correctly. Another thought is that the remote needs to be programmed, that was a common issue when I worked for a Ford dealer.
