I recently purchased a replacement remote keyless transmitter on Ebay. The transmitter came with a set of programming instructions, which call for accessing the alarm system control module. The module has a switch that needs to be repositioned during the programming of the transmitter(s). I am having a devil of a time finding the location or identifying the alarm system control module. The shop illustrations that came with the tranmitter just don't match what I'm seeing inside the car. All efforts to find this module have been on the driver's side - above the brake pedal area and side kick panel. I have even removed the driver's side lower dash facia (everthing below the speedometer) - found what looked like a 4" long (black color) flexible antenna with a coax - but no module. The antenna leads to "somewhere" unknown. To make things more frustrating, access to www.hmaservice.com\webtech is now password protected - so I have not been able to look into the Hyundai web site for clues. This module must be somewhere convenient - but it beats me where. Any clues?

the only way I know to program the remote is a trip to the dealer, a scan tool needs to be connected to the car in order to program the remote

The other way is to remove the plastic cover from under the dashboard (ie in the footwell) and somewhere in there is the central locking unit. You just flick the switch and program your transmitters into it.

As for where it is all I can say is that it is somewhere under the cover in the footwell - I am yet to do this myself.

that switch was only on the older models that had a clifford-sourced alarm, the remotes for these had buttons marked "I" and "II" I think, and the module for these was right above hte brakpedal, and the switch was often mounted in the fusebox. This model was almost always dealer-installed. The keyless entry used on Hyundais since like MY 2000 cannot be programmed with a scan tool to the best of my knowledge

Thanks for this additional information. When you say the switch might be in the fusebox, do you mean the small fusebox on the drivers side kick panel (inside the car, just forward of the door hinges) - or - the larger fusebox inside the engine compartment?

I've always seen them on the interior fuse box, but this was all on Elantras, however. The XG, to the best of my knowledge, has always had the remotes that require dealer re-programming

I just paid 2 on Ebay for these instructions though I have not tried yet! It sounds like it may be quite difficult to locate the receiver unit....my car is a 1999 Sonata 2.5 so hopefully there will be a chance that this works as it is an older car. Don't fancy handing any money to the dealers...



HYUNDAI
Procedure
1. Remove the lower crash panel and locate the Remote control receiver unit.
2. The switch on the side of the unit should be switched to the SET position.
3. Press the Door lock button or unlock button on the Transmitter quickly.
4. Return the switch to OFF position and then test remote control.

that should work on your Sonata Charlie, as the alarm in your car was either installed at the port or at the dealer, these systems are programmable without a trip to the dealer.

Thank you for your reply MikeNH. I have ordered another remote on Ebay but have not received it yet so will let you know how I get on.....wish me luck!

Sometimes it pays to have an older car - sorry to hear that it is not so simple on the xg.
