There is another discussion here for Hyundai Elantra, on Security Systems, that has some good info in it, for example:
Unfortunately, that post confirms what you already heard about the fact that only 2 remotes can be set up to work with an 2005 Elantra at one time. The way I take care of this issue in my family of 3 drivers (4 when my oldest son is home from college) is hang all the key fobs on hooks by the door leading to the garage, so there's almost always one handy when someone needs to take a particular car. It doesn't always work, as fobs end up in purses or pockets, but it helps.

I have a 2001 hyundai elantra which is now idling at a faster
than normal rpm. This produces the OBD2 code PO507 which
means "idle control system RPM higher than expected". Does
anyone know what could be causing this?

Does it idle consistently, or is it uneven?

The website replied to my inquiry regarding this that the key can possibly be "cloned" from an existing key by a locksmith that does key transponders.
#5415 of 5565 Wheel painting and wipers, 2001 GLS
Jun 13, 2009 (2:44 pm)
As I said in an earlier post, my wheels are either faded or starting to slightly rust on the surface, noticeable through the wheel cover openings. When I have my state inspection and tire rotation on the 22nd, I will ask my mechanic to spray a coat of black on the wheels. Does anyone have suggestions on what is the best type or brand of wheel paint for this job? Since the rims are mostly covered, I don't need to be terribly picky, but I will always notice the fading. As we all know, it isn't a matter of just popping off wheel covers, since they are bolted on.
Also, has anyone noticed the speed of their wipers slowing down significantly in colder temps? I suggested it as a warranty replacement, but it isn't happening constantly so they won't cover it. Paying for it out of pocket would not be a big deal, as I put very little money into my car as it is. I might just as well replace the wiper arms at the same time, as they are starting to rust. Idea? Suggestions? Ballpark price for parts and labor?

Any chance the wiper problem is really a battery or alternator problem? I remember that was the first sign I noticed of impending alternator failure in an old Honda I used to own. If the blower motor slows down or the headlights don't seem as bright as usual, those are also symptoms.

Battery is still strong, and the alternator is original, but the only time the wiper problem shows up is in the cold of winter or some of our recent cold and rainy spring mornings. Other times the wipers run as normal, and all other electrical seems normal.
I'm inclined to nip this in the bud before winter or before the wiper motor fails altogether.

In May of this year, my control arm just snapped , from rot, while taking a turn off a main drag. Luckily I was only going 5-10 mph. When it snapped, there was an awful grinding noise, like I was dragging something underneath my car. Wasn't until the tow truck came, did I know what it was. Had my own mechanic replace it, since I have never had good luck with the Hyundai mechanics. Then found out it that this was a recall. They are supposed to be reimbursing me, and told me it would take 4-6 weeks to get the check. Haven't seen it yet. How long does it take to get a check mailed out.

Probably about as long as it takes them to get the recall notification out. I haven't seen that yet either and it was released in May. Bet you're glad it didn't happen on a turnpike doing about 65-70! I considered myself lucky cause I'm on the highway all the time...and I don't drive 65 either.
#5420 of 5565 Cleaning Throttle Body
Jul 01, 2009 (7:48 am)
I have a 2002 Hyundai Elantra GT. Just had a brake service and the service tech said he recommended next time that I have an injector cleaning service, throttle body, etc. I am aware of "recommended" add on's the dealer's try to put in that are necessary, but it seems that some time back I read a post on this blog site that the Hyundai Tech manual specifically said NOT to clean the throttle body. Anyone recall this?
