Customer Question

Hi I have a 2004 elantra and was trying to program a new remote. I followed you instructions and got to the ETACS but I could not find the set switch. I unplugged the antenna and felt around, didn't sense any tape but felt an indentation. It is a small space everything is on the side of the unit so I could not see it face on. Tried a bent paper clip to see if I could catch the switch, but it didn't work. Any tool would have to turn 90 degrees to fit in the space. Any suggestions?

Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

The only way I know of to program a transmitter to the vehicle is via scan tool. The method you mentioned is not listed in the repair guides.

Well, this is odd. I submitted my question in response to a Just Answer post from "David - Heavy Duty Repair Mechanic" dated 25 Mar 2007. I followed the procedure specified and was having trouble with the last step. Evidently you are not aware of this post from David. You can see it here:
Can you point me to the right person to follow up on this? Thanks.

What the other tech wrote back in 2001 was a recall procedure for a 2001 model though he still left out to do that procedure a code saver tool is needed. Those steps will not work on your model.

Still confused. The other tech's write up clearly states that it is applicable to a 2004 Elantra. (Also, the post was dated 2007). If what you are saying is correct, then that write up is false and misleading. Do you agree?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

I agree, it appears incorrect since that is not how we do it at the dealer nor do the repair guides mention anything about this method for your year model.
