BUT are you happy or Sad?

Thanks Anurag. I'm happy for the reasons you have stated and also need not worry about the warranty is some modification is being carried out in the electrical department. Some of the parts like delicate AC vent adjusters were replaced under warranty until now. Henceforth I have pay huge bills for such purposes. Hence feeling little sad too.

Hi , is it possible to make the ovrm to fold when the car is locked? I was reading the new Honda city review and GTO says the it can be done at dealer level for city.
Then why not in i20..? Has anyone tried it ?

I doubt if any dealer will be willing to do it. I remember reading long back that someone had got the auto roll up of windows on locking feature at Hyundai dealer for a charge. So why don't try asking your dealer regarding this?

the auto fold mirrors is called a mirror relay and costs 1500 at the hyundai ASS. But make sure to get your car keys out first else you will lock them inside once you lock the car from the driver side door and close it and the mirrors will start rolling up.

Regarding automatic folding of orvm, that requires a motor to be present inside the mirror assy and will require whole part change so not feasible or easily done.

A costly option but if possible and if you can put the moolah buy the current i20 mirrors which have in-built motor and a relay with needed wiring to do to auto-folding.

This option is going to set you back by a lot.

AFAIK, all i20s manufactured after 2010 have the inbuilt motor and relay. My 2011 i20 has it. The only problem is that we need to press a switch in order to close/open it automatically.

I think what joshguy is referring is his mirrors need to close automatically if the ignition is off and vice-versa without the need to press this switch. This is available in the Grand i10 and newer vernas(owners please confirm). I think it may be a job of adding a code to the ECU just like auto locking after 40kmph. Never heard of anyone trying it though.

Are you sure that there is an accessory to roll up the windows and close the mirrors when the car is locked?

There is no separate pause option. When you want to pause, just power off the system. When you again power it ON, the track resumes from the position you paused.

I observed last night that the throw of the light was very low. I stopped behind a well polished car at a signal and observed in the reflection that the right side fog lamp was not glowing. I thought the bulb had conked off. Entered a deserted stretch after sometime and noticed that even the left side throw was dim. Got down and saw that both the fogs were not working. Since both the bulbs were not working, I assumed that the bulbs are fine but something was wrong with the wiring.

Took the car to Konark, Koramangala this morning. It was found out that the relay used in the wiring had a problem. They replaced it and the fog lamps are working perfectly now .

Hyundai has fixed some insane price for the flip key. If I'm not wrong, it costs upward of 6K (or 9K?). Not worth IMO. Why aren't you happy with the key from ebay?

The ebay key or myflipkey is exact replica but the problem is that the electronic board is not fitting inside correctly so every time i fix it and trun the ignition it remote opens up. i am thinking of sending it by courier to the guy from whom i purchased to fix it properly.

I am little scared to put a glue on it as it is electronics and any thing can go wrong in a wrong move

Ok here I am with another query

Do any of you have come across a problem with diesel pump? I felt that the throttle response was not great in my i20,and feel that it could be due to diesel pump. Because I have come across this when I owned a indica 7years back.

Last week I had to climb a steep incline from a basement of a hotel and the car literally was not responding to throttle at all.ther was a clear difference when compare to swift D

Please suggest

Hook up the diagnostic scan tool at H.A.S.S or if you have an OBD 2 reader or any of your friends then check what values does the fuel rail pressure give out with respect to the RPM of the engine.

These values should give you a faur idea regarding the fuel pump status.

Apart from this when was the fuel filter changed and when was the water-in fuel separator tank drained?
