Here are some features of i20 which you can add in your car with or without additional cost.

1.Auto Door lock at 40kmph - You can activate this feature from the Authorized Service Center.


The central locking enables when you cross the speed of 40 kmph. Also in a scenario if you forgot to lock the car manually with the remote key after parking it - the doors gets locked with in 30 sec.


2.Auto Door Unlock - You can activate this feature from the Authorized Service Center.


The central locking disables when you take out the key from the keyhole making the exit easy as no need to manually unlock the doors.

3. Firmware version check for HU (Head Unit/ Stereo)




Here are the button combination for displaying this text ( Press one by one but immediately)

Press and Hold 1FF, then 6

if the version shows in MID is VER M58 S71 D29 or higher then you HU is a good one

if the version shows in MID is VER M08 S69 D18 ( important to look for S69) then your HU have some issues like

1. HU automatically switches OFF while running
2. HU fuse pops up when you press Eject button while ignition is at OFF position.

You can get a free replacement of HU from Hyundai if you found your version as S69

This was badly missing in i20 and there was no light provided in the Glove Box. To add this you need to purchase Lamp Assy- Glove Box, Part No. 92630-1J000. Its Plug and Play so NO alternation/additions required.

note: Park light should be ON to make the Glove box lamp to work

Cost: Rs.118.00

Default Any tricks for the steering

Great features. However many of the team bhp owners of the i 20 have complained of issues with the steering. Do you have any tricks for the same.

Even if there are no "tricks" can you suggest remedial measures. It will of great help to some of my friends who are plagued by the very same problem.

Thumbs up Re: Hyundai i20 - Tips & Tricks

Ahh finally, your thread is here! Thanks for bringing this up. And yes, as usual, some excellent tips & tricks there.

One question. Are you aware of a feature where, after you get out of the car and close all the doors, it locks automatically after 10sec or so? I checked with HASS during my first service but they didnt know anything of it.

Pls keep posting and keep the thread alive. Drive safe.

Check the dummy ports near the headlamp leveler. If you can find the socket with wire then its possible to retrofit.

The central locking automatically enables after 30 sec in case you forgot to lock it with the key fob.

Thumbs up Re: Hyundai i20 - Tips & Tricks

i have many saying that there is no steering lock!...So, just want to tip you that it's there. you just have to be quick to lock it after turing off the ignition and removing the key(turning is more important here.). it just take a flick of turn on steering.
