Of all the vehicles I've owned with FOBs, my Hyundai is the only one I've never been able to locate a DIY FOB programming procedure for. Luckily I don't need to at this time for my 2008 GLS AWD, but you never know. As far as I know, Hyundai dealers are the only ones with the magical procedure and/or hardware to do it and I'm sure it ain't cheap unless you lump it in with other services.

I googled this just yesterday, and was unable to find any definite info on the newer models. What I did find was that on the older SantaFe there is an alarm module under the dash on the driver side. There is a switch on the module that you have to switch to off, and then press one of the buttons on the remote you want to program. What I didn't like, was that you could only have 2 remotes programed.

I see no reason why not... never tried it though.

I saw in the google finds for the older alarm remotes that it was only possible to have 2 programmed at any time. I hope it is possible to have more than 2 programmed. Next question, the dealer program, is that for both the immobilizer and the remote entry functions?

What about the 2010 SantaFe ? And again, is the Immo chip in the remote?

Im not sure if they changed it from 2007 to 2010 but I would think they didnt. Im in the US and as I understand the US models donot have the IM chip. all the dealer does is replace the new fob for one of the two that are already linked to the car

Interesting, so the US Hyundai fleet doesn't need an immobilizer. I was wondering why the "security system discount" from my insurance on the new Santa Fe was 1/2 as much as it is on my '03 Jetta wagon.
