    If it's a factory alarm (and maybe even if it isn't), you might try calling a local Hyundai dealership. They might be able to help.

    I had one years ago that had a wire connected to the battery. Disconnect that, and the alarm would go dead.

    I was going to suggest having the State Farm 'mayhem' guy come over and take care of it. Glad to see he wasn't needed.

    Has anyone in the last 25 years heard a car alarm and thought "Hey that car is getting stolen."?

    Next thread should actually be: why your kid needs to buy a second set of keys, or leave his car keys with you when he goes to Florida!
