A friend of mine works at a local hotel, and while cleaning out their lost and found he came across a Hyundai remote. Since all I ever do is go on about how much I love my Hyundai, he gave it to me. Turns out it's to an Azera.

So, I'm wondering if anyone has an idea of whether or not it can be programmed for my Sonata. I know the remote programming has to be done by hooking up the computer, so I'm wondering if the car just learns the remote's frequency.

It's a great looking remote (dumb, I know) but I'd like to program it to my Sonata if possible.

You'll probably need to pay a visit to the dealership.

I use to work at a rental car company and found that you might be able to use it on another car all together....lol. I know thats not what you want but walk through the mall parking lots and see if maybe you can open up a brand new Azera. What a great gift your friend gave you. Some keys even start other cars that are the same model.

That's a crock. Each key fob has a signature. Dunno if that signature is unique but it wouldn't be hard to make it so. The fob's signature is programmed into the module inside the car. The module has enough memory to let it respond to only a few fobs. Think about it: if it were otherwise how does your fob know how to open your car and not the Sonata parked next to it? It doesn't, but your module knows which fob to respond to and which to ignore.

The situation with keys is completely different. To manufacture unique keys and unique locks is just too expensive so there's a limited number of keys made for each make/model. But electronics is a different critter altogether. It's easy to manufacture chips that have a memory location for a unique serial then have the serial burned onto each chip just before it's installed in a fob.

I'm not blowing smoke; my employer manufacturers transponders for the electrical utility industry. Each one has a unique serial; the above method is how we implement it. It's common in electronics manufacture.

Id put cash on my statement. It didnt happen everyday but when our lot was sitting on 3500 cars at a time you could find a remote that worked on a car it wasnt suppose to.

silkeeeeone, holy crap!

For our product, if we did that, your utility bill might include another person's charges! I asked one of the engineers and they said the cost of "guaranteed serialization" is a fraction of a penny per.

When you were able to do that, was this a rental lot? I know they're mostly keyed alike, wouldn't surprise me if they were fob-ed alike, too. Especially GM, who walks over their Grandmother's grave to save 50 cents per thousand cars.

When I bought my Subaru I only got one fob. The dealer explained about the programming and asked if I wanted the "old" fob erased. I hesitated about a nanosecond before saying "Yes!" They sold me a new pair of fobs and programmed them into the module. I didn't ask if they'd tried the old fob after erasing it.

Methinks this is more complex than it appears at first blush.

I don't know that it will work- just an observation:
The Azera and Entourage fobs all say Siemens automotive, none of the other cars say this, I don't know that they are compatible.

I just bought a pair of keyless remotes on ebay for $27 (US) for both. The dealer programed them for free. They told me they can only program a total of two for each car so now I have a spare.

If you are interested ebay has a bunch of them for sale cheap.
