How to Program a Hyundai Key FOB

by Megan Mattingly-Arthur

The Hyundai Motor Company is a South Korean automaker that has been producing popular and stylish vehicles since the company was founded in 1967. Many of Hyundai's vehicle models offer a keyless entry system for added convenience. Dealer programmed Hyundai keyless entry FOBs must be reprogrammed after each vehicle or FOB battery replacement.

Sit in the driver's seat of your Hyundai vehicle. Close all of the vehicle's doors behind you.

Stick the key to your Hyundai into the vehicle's ignition cylinder. Turn the key to the "ACC" or "Accessory" ignition position.

Hold down the "Open" or "Unlock" button on the keyless entry FOB until the vehicle's lights flash. The keyless entry FOB is now reprogrammed to your Hyundai vehicle.


  • These keyless entry FOB programming instructions will only work to reprogram previously programmed Hyundai keyless entry FOBs.


  • These setting instructions may not apply to all Hyundai vehicle models. Contact your local Hyundai dealership or service center for model-specific keyless entry FOB programming advice.
