Hyundai Santa Fe Keys and Locks



  • I own a ' 04 Santa Fe and need instruction to program a remote. I lost one of the the originals, but still have the second one from the original purchase. I bought a replacement via ebay when I bought the car. The dealership wanted some outrageous $$ for an additional remote. I do not have instructions to do the programing. Does anyone know proper procedure to program them?

    I have a Hyundai Santa Fe 2005 that is not responding to a replaced key that has a code. Our Hyundai garage has suggested we have a new imboliser installed so the key will work, which is going to cost us an additional $1000. Is there something else the garage can try to make the key work?

    If the Service Guy is saying it's the immobiliser that is the problem, then why not just get them to disconnect it altogether. There has to be a way to properly program your new remote and key to operate the lock, they are just being dumb about it.

    Teacher; Go to this site it will explain how to do it.

    You will find the receiver on the left side of the dirvers compartment behind the fuse box. It is hard to find but it is there. I just did it on my 03 Santa Fe, Very simple. By the way take off the lower panel of the dash. 3 screws I think, makes it a lot easier.

    Did you buy that 2005 Santa Fe in the US? US Santa Fe's have never had immobilizers - not today and not four years ago.

    The Dealers here in Phoenix were trying to force you to buy an immobiliser by pre-installing it as an option prior to the sale.....they got pissed with me when I refused to pay for it (waay overpriced) as I had not ordered it. I assume a lot of dealers were trying to do the same for the extra bucks, along with hard selling the worthless extended warranty and charging extra for floor mats.

    Has anyone actually programed a remote to work on a 2004 Santa Fe? I simply can't fint a remote switch under the dash and have read on other websites that starting with 2004 it has to be done at the dealer. If anyone has any information specifically for a 2004, that would help me out!
  • car will not lock but will unlock. does anyone know where the fob relay is located??
  • It is under the dash, roughly above the brake peddle.
  • husband has locked keys in car - we dont have a spare but we think we have the number (mcgard number) to get another, we only need a key to open the door - not start the engine as the one locked in the car will do that. Do we get this from the dealer - how long will it take - and how much is it likely to cost ...... we are in UK.

    Can't say for the UK but here in US it was very easy and quick to get a key from dealer. Cost about $12 US.
