My keyless entry worked on the passenger side and the trunk would beep when I approached the car from the rear.

The drivers side would not respond to anything.

3 visits to the dealer.

1st visit: confirmed the issue. Ordered parts.
2nd visit: installed new door handle. Problem still there.
3rd visit: Installed electronic actuator(door locks I think). Problem still there. Tech pulling hair out.

I am getting out of the car and noticed that the Hyundai's have a PLUG that is visible near the door hinges. It's a black flexible rubber tube or boot that the wiring harness is in and it ends with a plug that connects on the car's chassis.

On a hunch I just pressed this plug firmly toward the chassis. I did hear some faint click sound near the bottom of the plug.

Immediately I thought "No fokkin' way!!?!?!?!?"

The end of the story is that I have had my keyless entry working perfectly for the last 3 weeks.

I made sure to call the dealership and let them know.

I just got my Sonata and my driver's side isn't working either. Randomly, one day it worked but other days it doesn't work. My passenger door side is good and the trunk release works. I will have to look for this plug.
