I have a 1998 Hyundai Coupe 2.0SE - The other day the doors wouldn't
open using the remote control - the light still flashes on the remote
and i changed the battery just to rule that out.
I've read that there is a switch behind a panel on the drivers side
that can be used to reprogram the car with the transmitter however i
have not been able to find this - in fact strangely enough i had part
of the dash off today looking and when i put it back together the
remote worked ONCE then stopped working again - Can anyone help me?
If the doors still lock with remote, then the vehicle is still receiving
the signal and reprogramming isn't the solution.
It's more likely that you have an issue with a relay or a lock actuator.
In fact, lock actuators are the number one cause of locking/unlocking
problems on this model.
No actually the doors don't lock or unlock with the remote (my first
post wasn't quite clear) - There was just that one occasion on sunday
when the doors locked and unlocked once using the remote then stopped
working again - However perhaps this does point to some sort of
intermittent problem as opposed to programming (i would like to try
programming if i can do it myself just to rule that out)
I have no idea if this can be done with Hyundai, but these guys will tell
you how for $10.
Of course, it may be something other than just programming.
