Thanks for the heads up Phil.

General Chat / Hyundai key fob programming
« Last post by phil48 on July 08, 2020, 14:51:23 »
It would appear that from 2007 hyundai/Kia have made the key fobs a programmable item with regards to central locking with no dodge or work around..if you let the battery in the key fob go flat and do not use it for some time the next time you do use it the central locking will not open the car..if you can get into the car it will start but the central locking will need reprogramming on the fob to reactivate it ..there seem to be no work around or dodge to over come this and by changing the fob body for another or fitting a blade can leave the fob without power and this will happen..this means that owners will have to visit a locksmith or dealer to have this done at quite a cost..have heard of one dealer charging £200 for this service and a locksmith half that price..so beware ..if you think the cell battery in the fob is loosing charge change them asap and quickly..do not delay it..

Ok, thanks. Interested to hear what you find. I have taken the car off the road for the time being and would like it back on it asap.

Now the lockdown has eased, I will hopefully be able to get some miles on this dormant vehicle and maybe take some pics eventually.

Thanks for reply. Yes it came up with a fault code P0715 which indicated the input sensor at fault and that’s why we replaced it.
I don’t know if the tone wheel has been looked at. I will check with the garage.

I think you may be right that I need to take a trip to a gearbox specialist.

does the engine light flash a code? is this why the input speed sensor was replaced? has the tone wheel the sensor reads off been looked at for corrosion or missing teeth?
it stays in 3rd gear as that's what the gearbox does when it goes into limp mode.

best bet is taking it to a gearbox specialists. i no it doesn't help much
General Chat / XG30 gearbox sensor

Hi All,

I'm new to this site. I have one of the last running XG30s in the UK and it must be one of the best. However, it is 20 years old now and has a few electrical gremlins, most of which are minor, like self locking itself whenever it feels like it!

The worst problem I have is the gearbox keeps deciding to go into 3rd and staying there, causing the engine warning light to come on. We have traced this to the input speed sensor, so I bought a new one from the USA and had it fitted. It didn't work.

My mechanic has run out of ideas. The problem seems to be electronic as the gears otherwise are all fine when it is behaving.

If anyone has ever worked on one of these and dealt with a similar problem, I'd be grateful to hear how you solved it.
