I went to the Obrien hyundai Dealership in Ft Myers, FL, they said they could only program a maximum of 2 key fobs to my 2007 van. I'm pretty sure that I read on the HMAservice website that 4 can be programmed to each car. Anybody know what can be done? I already spoke to HMA customer service, they are clueless and an embarassment to the company, he said check with the dealer, what does he think i just did? Anyway, can anybody provide me a link to info on programming a 2007 Entourage. PS I love this van. Thanks Bill

It might be a good idea to ask that question in the general Entourage discussion as well.

You may want to try posting this question on the
alt.autos.hyundai newsgroup as well, and direct the question to "hyundaitech". He's been a Hyundai technician for a number of years and is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. And his answers are always right on. Just a thought.

Conversely,if your expectations are high enough you will never be satisfied.
My 2 cents on non-U.S. models and parts availability for them. U.S. spec cars typically have standards for emissions..safety..lighting etc. etc. that may be significantly different than those used in other markets. Therefore if you somehow import that "widget" from a middle eastern spec. car and install it on yours THEN either have an accident or experience driveability problems or some other type of failure who are you going to complain to??? Why Hyundai of course. So, from a liability standpoint at the very least they (Hyundai) understandably don't want to get caught up in that mess..
#43 of 93 Stereo/CD Fixable or just replace?

We have a 2006 Santa Fe. Monsoon stereo system. Problem is my 4 year old daughter used the CD player as a piggy bank. Yes, my bad. I am sure this will not be "covered by the warranty. Not that i want to ever go to the dealerships repair shop ever again. Yes there is a huge gripe there!
Anyway. Is there a way to get the CD/radio unit out of the dash and then remove the change from the component? Or should I just go and buy a new unit and install it? I cant use the cd player at all. It plays a few songs then basically grooves the disk to non readability.
BTW - she has also now used the steering wheel as a bank. Got coins in to the wheel where the air bag is.
TIA- although I think I already know the answer
#44 of 93 Hyundai Azera Electronic Service Manual...

... on a CD, includes Workshop Manual and Electronic Troubleshooting Manual. Arrived today, found on eBay for the "buy it now" price of $24.95 + $4.95 shipping. It's got more than I'll ever want to know in hundreds of pages. The disk initially has an index of all the models, but it only allows access to the Azera pages.
I note that there's at least one other available on eBay, under "2006 Hyundai Azera OEM Workshop Service Manual CD"...
#45 of 93 Online shop manuals???
Mar 29, 2007 (6:37 pm)
I'm fairly new to this blog so I don't know if this has been addressed yet. I went to the Hyundai Online manuals site listed in the very first blog entry and registered for access to the site. Once given a password, I logged in but am unable to view any of the manuals. It appears that the manual pages come up with very little text and at least one large image file for each page but the images are all missing (or not loading?)??? Is the issue with their site or my laptop?

Do you have SVG viewer on your laptop? Go to the first page, and click on Site Requirements where there will be a link to download "Adobe SVG Viewer". Without that, you can't see any of the images.

That did it. Guess I should have read the directions a little closer. Thanks!
