Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

I cannot unlock my 2001 hyundia elantra with the key or key fob

My key fob has not been working for a week or so. I have not been locking my car because of this. I accidently locked my car and now I cannot open the door. My key will not open any of my doors and my key fob will not work either. I tried replacing the battery also and still would not work. What should or can I do?

Hyundais have the tendancy to blow the ignition switch, yours was probabbly replaced, and by doing so you will need the Original key the car came with, not the new one included in the kit for the ignition switch.. also have you checked the little battery for the keyfob??? it probabbly went dry.

best regards!

SOURCE: 2001 Hyundai Elantra door locking problem

there is a short or a signal from the un-locking switch that is triggering your locks.

you have a switch manually to lock and un-lock your doors, the unlocking circuit is making contact.

you can try playing with your switch to un-short the switch or open it up ang check it.


tnx 4 using fixya,

How do you reprogram a key fob for a hyundai coupe?


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.

Keys lock in trunk alarm will not allow trunk switch to lock


The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.

Please dont worry yourself so much the security locks needs to be reprogrammed to enable it work effectively. Same happens to other vehicles as well.
