This TSB applies to 2009 Genesis, Tiburon, Sonata, Tucson, Entourage and Elantra models. The vehicle alarm system may intermittently sound due to light contact of the hood switch pad with the hood switch.
The correction involves replacing the hood switch pad with an updated pad that is 2.5mm longer. The current pad part number is 92736-2D000. The replacement (longer) pad is available as part number 92736-3A000.
Open the hood and remove the rubber switch pad. Install the new pad (a light coat of lithium lube on the male portion may ease installation). Close the hood and press the LOCK button on the transmitter. Verify that all doors lock and that the hazard lights flash one time. Press the LOCK button on the transmitter two times to confirm the “Horn Answer Back” feature is operational.
