I am pretty sure it does not have 1, but would like to confirm that the keys for my 2009 Sonata SE DO NOT have transponder chip in key (for remote starter).

Thanks.

when i was buying mine dealer told me i can cut the key in home depot and it will work so don't think it has a chip, beside that the valet key is just a regular key without black plastic housing and it is working with the car so i would say no chip

No, there is no chip in a Sonata key. The only vehicle Hyundai sells (US) that has a "normal" key (not proximity key) that is chipped is the Azera. They are a serious PITA to get one cut and programmed for a customer.

LOL.. go ahead and try to get Home Depot cut one for ya... Home Depot, Lowes and even Pep Boys by me didn't have the correct template for the key when I tried to get extras made... i had to go to the dealer and they cut me 2 extras for no charge (surprise surprise)...

but 'tis true, no chip...

well when i was buying 09 i had the fold away key on my mind thats why i asked him about extra key and extra transmitter but after a while and few posts on this forum i decide its a waste and didn't try to cut extra key - so You might be right

Surprise surprise is right. My dealer wants $21!!! for a key. And it's not even a factory Hyundai key, it's a knock off (same shape, no logo). You can guess where I told them to stick said key.

The Entourage also has the immobilizer system with a transponder key..........

My old Ford van had this type of key - could buy one cut at the dealer for $25 - took about 5 seconds to program by myself. Hyundai made this a dealer programming only for some reason and that's where the expense is - unless you have a really nice dealer who will do it at no cost....

Sounds like there must be some NF Sonata somewhere that has an immobilizer. (At least... if my Korean doesn't suck too badly...)
"NF Sonata Immobilizer Key (Main)"
"NF Sonata Immobilizer Key (Sub)"
"NF Key (Standard)"
