does anyone know about any faults with the remote locking on the gen 3?

i have a 2l se on an 05 and the remote locking has just stopped working! i have changed the battery and still doesn't work? does anyone know the re programming procedure or if there is a common fault with these as the original battery was not flat?

any help is much appreciated!

took the the car to hyundai wednesday and they have reset the alarm and said it needs a new fob for some reason so they have ordered it and it will take five days to arrive! anyway have been using it with no problems until went out and it won't unlock with the fob only the key, which sets the alarm off and now the immobilser won't turn off! does anyone know how to get round this? please help!!!

get a new alarm mate....i bought my coupe in the summer a 54 plate 2.0 and it had the scorpion and it was absolutely shocking, it done the same as what you said.
the fob stopped working and i had to unlock with the key and drive home with the alarm going off, which wasnt much appreciated coming off a nightshift..it wasnt the first time it had happened, it happened a few times, i booked it in with the dealer and they just fittied Meta system on there instead. which wasnt bad at all, im hoping if anything is going to break on it that it breaks in the next 2 weeks cus thats when my standard warranty ends!

well good luck getting this sorted mate, just state you know its a common problem and that the majority get upgraded!

Quick question with remotes, should I have one for a Gen1? Only got 1 key with car, so had spare made up, but not remote, I have seen people using remotes on gen1s, I'm starting to wonder if the missing key was a remote one.

Is yours the 2.0se? if so then it should 100% have an remote fob. Its the one with the grey and orange buttons you need.

lot of money if your alarm system turns out not to work in the first place though mate.
Thats very true. Id get hold of a cheap one i paid £10 for a second hand one of eBay a while back. I would get it check out to see if it actually works first before splashing out any moajor £££ on it

JUST REMEMBERED!!!!!!!! I have a spare one in the kitchen draw you can have. It needs a battery and will need programming to your car (dont have a clue on how to do that) also part of the case is cracked where i drilled a new hole to put on my key ring, If you want it PM your address and i'll send it down.

Also i cant guarentee it actually works as i never used it (the circuit board part). I broke my casing so bought a second hand one and changed the cases over. I was sold it as working so it should do.
