A site visitor asked recently about a replacement remote for a 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring model. Remotes Unlimited does stock that remote, which is our part number 089-6413. The price is $129.00. One can see and purchase the remote at the following link:
2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring Remote Keyfob
Hyundai keyless entry systems require a computer scan tool in order to program a new keyfob. So, to make the remote work with your vehicle, you will need the assistance of a dealer or an automotive locksmith. Or, if you happen to live in the Houston area, we can help you with programming at our Stafford warehouse.
Remotes Unlimited is based in Stafford, Texas, just outside of Houston. Hurricane Harvey has been decimating our area for several days now and the end is not yet in site. This has caused us to close for business until parcel shipping companies again begin operations and our employees can safely make it into work. We regret the inconvenience to customers and our thoughts and wishes for good luck go out to all of our employees and their families during this difficult time.
A blog reader contacted us for help programming the system in his 2005 RAV4 that uses a remote keyfob with FCC ID H5OT21. This FCC ID is only associated with aftermarket alarm and remote start systems, so his Toyota dealer had installed this system on the vehicle. Consequently, remote transmitter part and programming information for the factory-installed keyless entry system used on 2005 RAV4 vehicles is irrelevant. Here is our response:
There were several different remotes with FCC ID H5OT21. You can see them at the following link:
Remotes with FCC ID H5OT21
They were used on a variety of aftermarket alarm systems marketed by AutoPage and Code Alarm under the names Alert, Guardian and Marksman in addition to AutoPage and Code Alarm. All of these systems are user programmable. Remotes Unlimited can assist with programming any of these systems. We do charge for that service if you have not purchased a remote from us. To get assistance, call us at 281-820-0300 (M-F 9am-5pm Central time) and choose option 3 for tech support.
To complete programming, we need to know the model of the system. You can determine this by finding the control module (receiver) in your vehicle. It is usually located under the dashboard on the driver side. Also, the procedure uses the valet (shut-off) switch for your system, so you may want to be sure that component is working before you call us. (We do sell valet switches if you need one.)
In response to a recent inquiry, the correct replacement remote key fob for a 2005 Kia Amanti equipped with a factory keyless entry system is Remotes Unlimited part 593-1593. You can see and buy this keyfob at the following link:

The system in your vehicle requires a computer scan tool for programming to accept a new remote transmitter. So, you will have to take your vehicle and all of the remotes you use with the vehicle to a Kia dealership or qualified automotive locksmith for programming.
If you have any further questions, call Remotes Unlimited at 281-820-0300 (or toll-free in US at 877-719-1900) and choose option 2 to speak with a customer service representative.
We had two blog comments this week asking about older Cool Start alarm/keyless entry/remote start systems that used remote transmitters with FCC ID M65TX605. CrimeStopper – the marketer of Cool Start systems – made two key fobs with FCC ID M65TX605. CS-TX33 is a 5-button remote with lock, unlock, remote start, shift and flashlight buttons. CS-TX34 is an identical remote transmitter except that it also has a trunk button. You can see both parts at the following link:
Cool Start (CrimeStopper) Remotes with FCC ID M65TX605
CrimeStopper ceased making these parts some time ago. Remotes Unlimited does still have a limited supply of the 6-button part – Remotes Unlimited part 772-1772 – but the new parts in inventory are not expected to last long. We also have several B-grade 772-1772 remotes in stock. B-grade remotes are gently used remotes that have been tested and given a fresh battery. (Note that Remotes Unlimited often has B-grade keyfobs in stock even when our website shows only a new part in stock or shows no part in stock.)
Do not despair if our website shows both of the M65TX605 remotes as out of stock because, in addition to B-grade 772-1772 key fobs in stock, Remotes Unlimited also has a newer CrimeStopper/Cool Start remote in stock that will work in place of the old remotes with FCC ID M65TX605. That is Remotes Unlimited part 071-6497 with FCC ID Q6WBT4123. Even though this keyfob is made by a totally different manufacturer for CrimeStopper and has a different FCC ID, it will replace the older parts CS-TX33 and CS-TX34. It will operate all functions of the old 5-button and 6-button remotes except that it does not have an LED flashlight as the parts with FCC ID M65TX605 did. You can see and purchase Remotes Unlimited remote 071-6497 at the following link:
RUI part 071-6497 with FCC ID Q6WBT4123
The Cool Start alarm and remote start systems that use any of these remote key fobs are all user programmable for adding a new remote. Remotes Unlimited includes programming instructions and free phone technical support with purchase.
