Customer Question

Hi, Would u know where i can find the relays for the remote for lock/unlock? My doors unlock but don't lock via the key fob, and I've been told that the problem is probably the relay but i just can't find it.

Can you lock and unlock from the doors from the switches on the doors

and just have a problem unlocking with the Key Fob?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The switches on the door and using the key to lock and unlock works fine, it is only with the key fob that i can't lock the car

Hi .

Good thank you .

Okay if the doors lock and unlock with the switches and only has a problem with the Key Fob then the micro switch in the key fob has failed , use your spare , or you will have to buy and reprogram a new Key Fob.

Good news its just the fob and nothing with the system which could be more expensive .

The keyFobs on this car has to be programmed using a programming tool .

Check your local Car locksmith, they normally carry them and program them for you .

This is a typical issue that you are having its the unlock or the lock micro switch that fail

thanks, ***** ***** am still suspecting it is a problem with car as opposed to the key fob as i have 2 fobs and they both can't unlock the car. does this make any sense?could it be a problem with the relay as i understand there is a separate relay to lock and unlock?
Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.

No will not be the relay , will be the door lock control module , this can be tested with the dealer scan tool to confirm

this issue .hoping this would not be your problem as this could get expensive ,

does that mean i need to go to a dealer about this problem?
Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.

Hi .

Yes you need to visit a dealer, or a Indy shop that is set up to work on KIA and Hyundai .

The needed diagnostic tool is a must for your problem .
