This came directly from my Hyundia service guy:

Unlock the car, get in and close all doors. Turn the ignition key to ACC, press the Unlock button till blinkers flash. That's it. Get out of the car and see if it works.

Good luck.

Airbag light is on - 2003 Tiburon

Air bag light is on and stays on. Hyundai had a re-call for this problem where the driver-side seatbelt was affecting the circuit for the airbag. I had the problem checked at a Hyundai dealer (showed them the re-call) and they confirmed that that is cause of the problem and I will have to replace the seat belt (as stated in the re-call). Hyundai Canada is claiming that there isn't any outstanding re-calls for this. My question is, is there a body responsible for dealing with this and how do I contact them?

tiburon sunroof problem

On my 2003 tib there are two buttons to work the sunroof... the one that can only lift the roof up and down completely does nothing, no sound, no click, nada. The other that slides the roof back only lifts the roof and slides it half way back. Any ideas??

Hi guys you have to re-program the computer function that controls the sun roof. Turn the ignition to off. Hold down both buttons that open the sunroof simultaneously and switch the ignition to on. Continue holding the buttons to open for about 10 seconds, or until you here a click, or until the sunroof opens. This should fix the problem, and remember the solution because it will happen again.

It could be several things: A faulty crankshaft position sensor, a problem with the ECU, a bad ground, a faulty mass air flow sensor, faulty camshaft position sensor, a bad fuel pump or fuel pump relay. If you have a large chain type auto parts store ex.(autozone, advanced auto parts, pep boys) nearby, once you get the car started you can go there and they have a diagnostic tool that they will hook up to your car and test it for free, It may read some codes that may pinpoint your problem. If no codes come up, I would be inclined to believe it may be a loose wire or bad ground somewhere.

inside door panel has to come off, then there are usually 1 rod on the handle pull, and one rod on the lock.. these pop off the rod and stay on the hanldle body. there should be @ 3 or 4 nuts on the back side of the handle. thease removed and the old handle shouold pop out.. dont force it... new handle in... .hand snug the nuts, put op rods back in proper holes, snap in clips... TEST BEFORE YOU PUT THE DOOR PANEL BACK ON...... saves lots of time if you happen to put the rods in wrong.

The check engine light came on on my 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

Got an OBD 11 and checked it for a code and the code that came up is:
P0455

Evaporative Emmission Control System Leak Detected (Gross Leak)

What do I do now and what does this mean exactly, what is wrong with the car and what parts does it need to be fixed and an approximate cost and time labour should take

Well actually this is the most embarasing code to get... It actually means your emission purge line is inoperative. Yes your scanner told you a generic definition, which is the nature of OBD 2 but, the truth is that 10 out of 10 times this code will not be fixed by replacing the gas cap. This particular code relates to any one of 3 components, and two sensors in your evap system. Test the sensors, and if they are good, then have your evap canister weighed. If it is the correct weight, then don't replace it, check the valve on the purge line, if that is fine then you have to replace the filler neck. Not because the filler neck is bad, but because there is a filter made into it which is connected to the purge line which is plugged with charcole and fuel, and this is where it gets embarasing... Its plugged because you over filled your tank too many times. Letting the pump go until it shuts its self off is very easy, but also very costly. As you have just found out.

how do i chage a c/v axle on a hyundai tiburon

Specifically for 2003 Tiburon V6 6 speed, but may work for you as well.
-Loosen tire lugs
-Remove center caps with screw driver or similar tool (careful not to scratch caps)
-loosen axle nut

-Jack the car up and place on jack stands
-Chalk rear wheels
-finish removing tire lug nuts and tire
-remove cotter pin and finish removing axle nut
-remove brake pads
-remove caliper and brake assembly
-remove rotor (possible PITA), use extreme caution hammering a stuck rotor!

IMPORTANT STEP:
*remove 2 bolts from strut mount assembly. This will allow you enough clearance to "cleanly" pull axle out with minimal force/hammering. No axle puller tool necessary and no messing with the lower ball joint.

-Now gently tap the axle out of the hub assembly
-pull the rest of the axle out of the hub assembly by hand or pry with long screw driver or pickle fork. Again, since you removed the 2 strut assembly bolts, your hub assembly should have dropped down and away from the axle quit a bit to allow you enough clearance to remove axle from hub assembly

**Follow next steps for DRIVER SIDE ONLY**
-Next, place a fluid pan to catch any leaking trans fluid before removing axle from transmission side.
-Using a long screwdriver or pickle fork, pry the axle away from the transmission
-Remove entire axle and replace with new one
-Installation is reverse of removal steps. (not difficult, just line up the splines and everything should "pop" in place
