Default Re: Hyundai i20 - Tips & Tricks

I have Hyundai branded central locking for my i20 Magna and I thought it would make a racket if the car is shaken violently (or if someone tries to pry open the door).

Last week, my parked car was rammed into by another i20 and my poor car quietly took the hit and slid back about 6 ft BUT - it wasn't yelling out (as in the alarm wasn't ringing) - So is it ONLY if the doors are opened or the bonnet opened (forcibly)?

Sorry if this question shouldn't be on this thread?

Why should central locking sound a alarm if someone hits your car ? Isn't that a seperate alarm system ?

See if you have bought a central locking system with impact sensors only then your car will yell if someone hits it. If you have bought just central locking with alarm it won't yell.

To see if your central locking alarm is working,roll down the driver side window and lock the car from outside. After a minute put your hand inside and unlock the door from inside. It should start yelling !!!

But what happened to your car? Six feet is quite a long distance.how did it happen?

Does that mean, if you use the central lock to lock all the doors, none of the passengers can unlock the doors and step out?

If yes, could you give me the details. Mine (May 2010 i20 Auto) doesn't have it.

His central locking system is an Hyundai accessory and not factory. Yours is factory fitted since its an auto

The car sure would yell if unlocked without the central locking gadget. What happened to my car??? --> http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street...-pics-635.html Here is the story.

Nope this probably is the most basic of company fitted (not factory fitted) central locking system where it'd ring only when the doors are pried open or the bonnet.

Mine's March 2009 Magna.

In my car, only the front passenger can unlock the door. Rear passengers cannot unlock when central lock is used. Mine is 2011 Sportz.

Good question and the good answer is - the central locking is also connected to the bonnet (there is a little spring loaded switch under the hood) - with the crash - the hood was damaged - so should it not have started screaming?

Shubz - if the damaged bonnet kept the switch pushed down - it will not trigger the alarm.

EDIT: check the first pic in post number 9517: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street...ml#post2538925 - the damaged bonnet was keeping the switch pushed down, as far as i can see.

You are right sir. the bent bonnet depressed the switch further. so no alarm.

Wondering if I should change to more advanced car security system.

Experts: Any suggestions?

Wildon, if you are looking at this, the version of my HU firmware is,

VER M08 S69 D27.

So S69 is what it is. Do I need to get the HU changed? How? where do I go for it? etc.

Appreciate your time on this.

Thanks,
Shubz
