Default Re: Hyundai i20 - Tips & Tricks

I've a 5 years old i20 Asta Petrol which has clocked over 87k on the Odo. About an year ago, I had the Steering mounted Audio Controls acting weird and eventually they stopped working altogether soon. I enquired from a Local Audio guy for the fix and he reverted in negative since he never undertook this kind of a job. A week ago, my horn refused to blow and upon checking with the Accessories shop, he told me that the Steering needs to be opened and shall cost something about Rs. 1,500. Since this very model has Airbags I headed to Hans Hyundai Service Centre and conveyed my issue to the SA there.

They changed the Clockspring behind the Steering wheel which acts as an Electrical Signals Link and both Horn & Steering Mounted Audio Controls started working. Total Cost was Rs. 2054 which also included Wiper Blade Rubber (Rear).

I suppose the Steering Controls issue is a common problem hence posting here for the benefit of members at large!

Appreciate your time on this.

Nice. BTW I am confused about the colour of your MID screen. I guess its blue everywhere. Saw an orange one for the first time. Is it a feature, to change the screen colour to blue ?

Can one purchase just the rubber inserts for the wiper blades instead of the complete replacement of the wiper? How much did this cost you?

the third concern is cost. the cost quoted for replacement of quarter panel is 15k approx. with insurance i pay approx 5k and lose no claim bonus.

do let me know your thoughts
thanks

This is ridiculous. Why do they need to cut the quarter panel to repair and paint a dent? My suggestion would be to look at the TBHP directory for some recommended dent and paint shops near your place and go to them, I am guessing a price of around 6k, considering the color of the car.

My nearest Hyundai A.S.C guys said that the 40kmph auto door locking feature is not available in i20. They said that it is a feature in the after-market security systems, but not in the stock one. I'm very sad.

The original i20 in 2008-2009 had orange MID screens. An update (2010 or 2011, not sure which) had them change it to blue.

My 2009 i20 has the orange backlighting and IMO it looks better.

Okay. That's the reason I have a blue backlit MID as mine is a 2014 model. And yes, I really like the orange one better and was really excited to know about it!

Hi,

Faced an issue with my i20 Asta CRDI (Sep 2012) today morning. Despite pressing the unlock buttons on the remote key, as well as the ones on the car - she did not open. I tried to open the boot and that did not work either.

After a couple of tries more, the car unlocked and I was able to drive to office.

What could be the reason for this? low battery in the remote key?

I have been trying (in vain) to figure out the issue with my horn for about 6 months. I wasted money replacing the horn, and then the wiring, before suspecting a steering wheel level issue - which you have now explained and confirmed. Seriously, thanks a lot for posting this !!

Has anyone ever got a upgrade done through the G-scan, if yes can you please narrate the process?
I have a 2011 Asta (petrol) .. wonder if there is an official update than can be flashed to the ECU ?? Can anyone comment on this ?

Meanwhile UD Motorx in Delhi is offering these results with their custom ECU flash ...

It looks like that table is meant for the European i20.

The i20 never had a 71 bhp 1.2 petrol or a 74 bhp 1.4 diesel option in India.

The 1.2 Kappa dual VTVT found on the facelifted (previous gen.) i20 has an output of 83 bhp and 115 Nm in stock form itself. Even the pre-facelift 1.2 Kappa (without VTVT) has an output of 79 bhp in stock form.

Only the third map (meant for the 89 bhp 1.4 diesel) would be applicable for the Indian i20.

Its plug and play ( i.e connection wires , socket everything is present in the car, you just need to buy this item and attach it to the socket)

Cost: Rs.579.00
Sorry to bring this back up since i came across this thread recently.
Can anyone help with the part number for the rheostat switch in beige color? I asked the SA and he said the above mentioned part number is for the black color and i checked the parts list provided further down the thread-it mentioned a blanking plate assy-rheostat.

Also i felt the area where the glove box lamp goes. There seems to be no socket and wires but only a cut out in the plastic where the lamp sits.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks!!

Yesterday I noticed a small crack of some 1 cm on the lens of the headlight of my i20. Any suggestions on how it can be fixed long term considering they get hot when on.

Ask the part number for the Santa Fe or Verna rheostat switch. They will be of beige. else just ask whether the part is available in beige color or not

The socket and wires are taped above the glove box to prevent rattling. The glove box has to be removed to access the wiring harness
