as posted before we have purchased a 2003 gl sedan with power doorlocks and
the previous owners did not provide us with a remote keyfob and we are not
certain that the car has a factory alarm/keyless entry.
last night my wife came home and when she shut the car off,a red led came on
in the hyundai factory stereo.i looked in the manual and there is no
reference to a flashing led in the stereo.it is an upgraded factory stereo
that is not in the owners manual and it does say hyundai on it.
is there any way that i can positivly identify if this car came with a
factory alarm and keyless entry?
would the vin# be helpful to find this out?
well that explains that ,but it seems that the radio is nothing special.
someone would actuall steal a hyundai factory cd player!!!
i guess its back to square one and an aftermarket keyless entry to add to
the existing power door locks.
Yes, a very easy way. Contact Hyundai Customer Service and ask them.
They'll need the VIN for your car, but will be able to tell you
everything it came equipped with from the factory. If the car had an
alarm (more than likely it did), they can tell you what's necessary to
get a new key fob for it.
When it comes to questions like this, contacting the manufacturer is the
best way to go, as no one on the Internet is going to be able to give
you a definitive answer.
No, it doesn't that the radio can't be stolen, just that it won't work
in another vehicle if it IS stolen. That's not even completely true,
since all you need to activate it is the numeric key, which is usually
printed on a label affixed to the side of the glove box (look on the
left outside surface). Not that you average thief would know that or
take the time to find the code.
According to the parts catalog, you do not have an alarm or transmitter, so
you'd need an add-on system to use keyless entry.
