I bought a 2016 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Ultimate/R-Spec from a salvage auction. Car had no keys. Bought 2 new smart keys from dealer and had a locksmith come out to my house for programming last week. He did it, but at the time the belt was off and other things were in the way so we cranked it over for half a second and called it done. Today all ready to go I went to start it, it starts then shuts off. Wont restart until you turn the car off, wait a few seconds and try again. If you just hit the start button again and not power it down completely it never even fires. Same thing over and over. It has spark consistently so it must be a fuel issue. The locksmith swears if it cranks over his job is correct and I must have an electrical problem somewhere. According to what I read in an older service manual the fuel system is regulated by the immobilizer system. Anyone had this problem? I am about to tow it to a shop or even a local dealer to see whats up. I am 300 deep in this locksmith but maybe he is right, something else is wrong??? Any help will be appreciated!!!

i thought the dealer had to program it... just guessing.
The locksmith got the pin code from Hyundai using my vin and supposedly programmed it. I have a friend with a snap-on edge scanner. Im trying to get him out to the car so we can see if the fuel is enabled and to check pressure. These gdi cars have two fuel pumps. I believe they shut down the high pressure one on the engine if there is a problem. Wanted to see if this problem is common, I guess not.

Maybe connect the fuel pumps to secondary power supply (jsut make sure to NOT fry your ECU doing this and chcek if you got injectors firing ?
Or beter yet get an osciloscope and chcek if power is going to Pumps and to injectiors

my primary pump failed a few years ago and it still ran in limp mode.
a specialist in Gc's may save you money over trial & error.

salvaged?...

Did you pull codes? if it was an issue with the keys it would give you a code related to keys/immobilizer.
Since you said that the car starts, I doubt that it's that.
