Do HYundai's have panic button on remote?

    I HOPE not! I'm real tired of accidentally pressing it on my Honda
    remote and almost having a heart attack!

    Nope, I wish they did though. It's useful to find your car in a large
    lot when you can't remember where you left it...

  3. Our '02 Sonata does not but our '04 Santa Fe LX does, and I've hit the
    tank's panic button about a hundred times just trying to figure out which
    remote is which by feel inside my jacket pocket.

    If its on the remote of the car I end up purchasing, I'm going to try
    to have it de-activated.

    Now here's an interesting question. None of the 2003 models (that I
    know of) have the panic button. Does anyone know if a 2004 remore
    with the button could be reprogrammed for a 2003 model (say, my Sonata
    LX) and still have the panic button work?

    Wasn't there a panic button on the fob of the Sonata you test-drove? The
    panic button is recessed compared to the lock and unlock buttons so even
    without looking it doesn't take long to learn which is which.

    I like the fact that we have this feature; and it's easy to turn off the
    alarm by hitting the button again.

    Neil, I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't take a studied look at the
    remote when I rented the car for the weekend. I'll have another chance
    next weekend when I rent my next Hyundai.

    No, you don't program the remote itself...you can program the 2004 remote's
    code into the older model receiver, but the panic function is not supported,
    so it wouldn't work.

    People who do that should be flogged. Find your car -- don't disturb
    everybody else who lives nearby, or the people who are just going about
    their business in the parking lot.

    This is very easy to do with any FOB. Just pry it open and put a piece
    of adhesive tape on the circuit board just beneath the panic button.
    Then it will never work until you remove the tape.
