Your car model is not specified, check under the dash or inside of the engine room close to the partition barrier.

2002 mitsubishi montero door chime not working


a HOnda Mitsubishi? huh?
MITSU: sport or non sport?
for some its a blessing, vast posts world wide to on how to kill em.
but is:
first in all electric fails check all dash and engine bay fuses.
ETACS ECU , is the controller, on this car.
Electric Time & Alarm Control System
1: does the chim work on all other chime active errors? , like the KEY reminder feature? if that works , id bet the ETACS is ok.

2: the door switch bad (drivers?) the door switch is like #1 fail on all cars. they get dirty , fail to close, (rust) and bingo bad switch.
the way to diagnose it it is to use the FSM book.
the door switch ground the Door ajar pin in ETACS,
so if the voltage on the wire is not at 0v door closed, the switch is
bad, or the ground wire to it is rusted and bad.

the operators guide is free, get it, and read it, and see all things
that make the chime sound. can be many things. ETACS has a large number of inputs..

Hello. Where is that ETACS box located under the dash on a 2001 hyundai santa fe? I have the fuse box panel off but cannot find the etacs box to sitch to off for remote programming.


I live in Australia so mine is a right-hand-drive Santa Fe 2001. I wonder if this is why so many people seem to have so much trouble locating this box. On a left-hand-drive the box may be more over the footwell instead of near the side wall. In my car it is actually behind the fuse box near the right-hand side-wall. The switch is actually not visible as it is located on the right hand side of the ETACS box (near the side-wall). I had to locate it by feel. Once thought I had located the switch I held my finger pressed up against it for a while, to litterally get an imprint of the switch. The position towards the driver appears to be the "off" position, and the position towards the front of the car the "set" position. I turned the ignition key on (2 clicks), flicked the switch to the "set" position, pressed the lock button (I watched the flash on the remote, but heard nothing from the car), turned the ignition key to "off" and pressed the remote lock button again, then reset the switch on the ETACS box back to it's original position. That's it. My remote is working now. Hope this helps someone else...

Tryin to locate the keyless entry reciever and the Set/Off button


The ETACS unit, which controls the alarm, is bolted to the dash chassis and is located immediately behind the climate control cluster. You need to gain access to this unit to code a new remote. Technically, you are not coding the remote; what you are doing is re-programming the ETACS module to remember and accept the secret code transmitted by the remote. The ETACS unit is designed to remember and accept up to two remote codes. If you wish to add a third remote, the dealer must program the third remote to utilize the same code from one of the other two remotes (called code-saving). There is no way to do this yourself.

The Project

1) Remove the dash facia using the "Easy Dashboard Removal" DYI posted
here by member kmr327.

2) Remove the four screws securing the climate control cluster, pull it forward, and remove the wiring harness.

3) Using a flashlight, (and cramming your head), find the sticker that marks the location of the set switch on the ETACS unit. It is on the right side of the ETACS unit, below the antenna input (the antenna can be unplugged -- it utilizes the same type connecter as the AM/FM antenna). Note the positions on the sticker for "Off" and "Set". By default, the switch is in the "Off" position, which is the normal functioning position. Next to the sticker is a small piece of tape covering the recessed slider switch, which you can not actually see. Remove the tape with a razor blade or by picking at it with your fingernail.

4) Once the tape is removed, use a jeweler's screwdriver or other similar small tool to flip the switch into the "Set" position. (Note: if you unplugged the antenna from the ETACS unit, the antenna must be plugged into the ETACS unit at this point and the car's battery must be connected). You are now ready to code the remote. NOTE: When you code the new remote, you must re-code your old one at the same time or the old one will no longer work. To code the remote, press either the lock OR the unlock button of the remote once. Do the same thing for the second remote. Try to do the second remote within two seconds of the first one. Slide the switch back to the "Off" position. Verify that both remotes function. If they do not, set the switch to the "Set" position again and repeat the procedure. If you continually run into problems, try coding only one remote. I have heard on some of the forums that the second remote has to be pressed within a second of the first and that it may take several attempts to be successful. I did not encounter this problem.

5) Reassemble the dash facia.

Hope this information is useful!

I just had to buy one too and these are the instructions I was given by the guy I bought it from. I haven't tried them yet. Hopefully they work for us both :).

2.Once the switch is located make sure your key is not in the ignition and set the switch from off to set.
3.Press keyfobs door lock button for one second, this sends the codes to the ETACS and stores it.
4.Do the same thing if you have 2 remotes for the vehile.
5.Now set the ETACS switch from set to off.
