    My 2001 santafe remote start only works when I hold the remote 1 ft. from
    the antennae..
    Is their a resource or faq somewhere that might help in troubleshooting?
    Obviously the antenna is a logical place to start,I tried the only installer
    in town,but they wont touch it because they did not install it.
    nearest city is 5 hrs drive.
    the remote start is an astrostart 11`00 or 2100 series.
    thanks for your help.

    Hey thanks I will try a 6 ft one first to see if your suggestion holds
    water,then I`ll run out and buy a 500 ft one.if it works.
    Should I also wrap it in foil to stop the aliens from taking control of my
    santafe when I sleep?
    They already abduct me at night when im asleep and force me to do things I
    cant talk about here<g>
