Q: Car alarm keeps going off in 2006 Hyundai Elantra

asked by on

My alarm keeps going off. I need to know how to set up the new keyless entry remote.

The alarm going off is most likely not related to the remote. You may have a door switch sensor going bad and intermittently causing your alarm to activate. Finding the problem may difficult to do on your own. The key might be able to be programmed by a locksmith. If not, it may require special tools only available from the dealer.
