Alarm goes off on its own, Hyundai Sonata

Alarm goes off on its own, Hyundai Sonata

If you own a Hyundai Sonata and have problems with the alarm going off intermittently or on its own, this may be the fix you’re looking for. Hyundai has issued a technical service bulletin (TSB) 09-BE-026. The bulletin applies to other Hyundai vehicles as well:

Genesis
Genesis Coupe
Tiburon
Tucson
Entourage
Elantra

Hyundai attributes the problem to light contact with the hood switch pad and the hood switch. Hyundai has revised the part. The new part #92736-3A000 is available from the dealer. To install it, open the hood and remove the rubber switch pad located on the front driver’s corner of the hood. Install the new switch pad. After the pad is installed, press the LOCK button on the transmitter. The doors should lock and the hazard lights should flash once. Then press the LOCK button twice and you should hear the horn. That tells you the system is operational.
