Question Re: Hyundai i20 - Tips & Tricks

Hi Wildon,

At launch, the i20 Magna used to come with only a AUX in port, unlike the Asta, which had AUX+USB. Is it possible to install the AUX+USB socket to Magna? If yes, do you also know the part numbers of parts required to do so?

Thanks.

Its possible to retrofit the AUX+USB. Ask the dealer for the necessary part with wiring loom. Also listing here the complete part list of Hyundai i20.

Thanks a ton for this Wildon. I've fitted the glove box lamp in my car. I also had the autolock done. They tried to charge me for the auto lock under 'Hi-Scan Charges' @ Rs. 250 ! I refused to pay saying that this feature was supposed to be the default mode of the car and it was not on mine. The removed it after I acted tough - also the car is still in it's first year.

Am trying to get good carpet mats and a good steering cover for the car now. After that it'd be door sills.

Question Re: Hyundai i20 - Tips & Tricks

Nice and organized information. I have followed your previous posts and good that you have compiled all your learnings. Big thanks for that!

Yes, I am hinting to drive-by-wire concept to be available in mid segment cars as well. It will be to everybody's delight that with the same ECU or on-board micro-controller, just upgrade the firmware and get some exciting new features.

Anyways, what I wanted to ask, is there any way we can get HU to display the fuel efficiency values? You will be aware, Hyundai i20 has this features in the variants available in Europe. So I guess, if the same ECU is being used as a standard across all the variants, there might be some switch combination to enable this.

Thanx Wildon for such an informative thread. I recently got my i20 delivered and will be creating a new thread shortly.

Also I would like to inform all the i20 owners that the new i20 has now bluetooth phone connect integrated on the stereo and the has steering mounted controls for the same.
Maybe you can look into that and give us some tips and tricks for it.

Wow! Thats really cool and one of the most awaited features in i20. Now the question is, how to activate the same in previous versions? Will there be a HCU upgrade or something for the existing owners?

I think you will have to change the ICE unit as the bluetooth may be inbuilt in it. Also the steering controls will have to be replaced completely as the layout is totally different.

Here is the pic of the new steering controls :

I was just fooling around with the bluetooth connection of the car when I suddenly decided to play some music on my cellphone and see if it is streamed to the bluetooth. But to my disappointment the sound only came from my cellphone speakers.
But after that I accidently presed the AUX button and BOOM!!! The sound was now coming from the car speakers.

Here is the message displayed on the screen when song is played through bluetooth :

This feature is standard in Sportz and Asta. I have Sportz CRDi.
And all the best for the ICE replacement. Do keep us updated on the same.

I spoke to the SE whom I was interacting with during the car purchase. What he said is the new i20 is around Rs. 20k more than the current and if I want the new ICE, I will have to bear this cost!!! Alternately, he suggested me to buy a bluetooth kit for Rs. 8k that will make current ICE function exactly as the new ICE. I will be going to their showroom to grab more details on this weekend, if time permits.

I shall keep you updated.

Hey Wildon and others !! Kill me for this but can you please tell me if there are any side effects of these tricks. Eg. AC diagnosis. Can anything stupid happen? I am a total dumbo in all these things and I will be taking the delivery of my i20 in a few days time. So please help.
