      New I-gen i20 Issues.

      Hey Guys !
      I bought an I20 Sportz CRDi from MGF Hyundai,Delhi almost 3 months ago.
      Some Pics :

      All was Well until two weeks ago when an Uneducated DTC Bus Driver decided to Hit the car on the Right Front end.

      I went to the MGF Hyundai's Service centre on Rama Road, Moti Nagar to get repairs done.


      (Issue 1)I was asked to wait 12 days for the following Parts: Front Right Fender, Front Bumper and Front Right FogLamp. Plus 3 days for carrying out the repairs.

      That meant being stranded without my 2 month old car for 15 days. I was surprised at the unavailability of such Frequently Used parts. Complained to Hyundai, They didnt revert.

      Was busy for he next 3 days called MGF, they said atleast 1 week but could be more.

      After that searched in two more service centres: Himgiri Hyundai and Deep Hyundai on the same day.
      Deep had the parts, Himgiri didnt have all.
      So gave the car to Deep Hyundai and got it back in 03 Days with all the work done.


      (Issue 2) The car was delivered with two different type of keys : One was a FLIP KEY and the other was a Manual key(See pics). While I was disheartened at Hyundai discontinuing two flip keys it was to become more trouble fr me later.
      If the Car is locked by the Flip Remote Key and unlocked with the manual key the Anti-Theft Alarm will be triggered. That is obvious considering that the central locking system is activated when the car is locked and if you open the car manually the alarm will be triggered. But still, Hyundai supplies The Sportz and the Magna(O) variants with one FLIP key and one Manual Key.

      I had noticed this earlier and had taken up the matter with the SA at Himgiri Hyundai during the First Service, He called his senior who asked me to contact the Sales Dealer as the car Model was New and they were unaware of this.
      I tried calling the sales @ MGF Pitampura, They never called back.

      I had to go to collect the RC Card from them afterwards so took up the issue with the executive, who blatantly expressed his unability to solve the issue.

      Frustrated I lodged a complaint with the Hyundai Helpline who behaved very nicely and listened about the issue patiently but failed to put it in Words. The next day I start getting Apologetic calls from the Customer Relations @ Himgiri Hyundai asking me to visit Workshop again to have the issue rectified.

      They were told in the complaint that "The customer had noise when opening car, Told SA at first service but was referred to sales dealer". While he was correct about the referring to the dealer part, he completely changed the Issue I was having.


      Finally got time to visit the service centre today, The Customer Relations Manager was very helpful throughout. While I didnt see the Reluctant SENIOR who reffered me to the dealer, The SA arrived and the car was taken inside for diagnosis. While discussing the issue with their Floor Manager, Sales Executive, SA and the CRM it was diagnosed that the Car can only be unlocked with the remote which means the car is as good as a stolen car because it will go beeping once you open it then Put it in First Gear and so on.

      Have been Assured to be provided with a solution in next 2 days by the CRM.

      Thanks for reading through such a long Post. Any Helpful Comments are Appreciated.

      Pardon me, but I don't seem to have understood your issue.

      Is the i20 supposed to come with 2 flip keys? And you have got just one?

      Or are you saying that when you lock the car with the remote lock and unlock it with the normal key, it shouldn't trigger the immobilizer?

      The reason they might have given you a manual/normal key is that, incase the battery of the flip key fails on you, you can use the other key. It's just supposed to be used a spare from what I understand.

      I think you feel that the car should be provided with the same set of keys, either the manual type or the flip ones, right?
      Ideally the car should come with reset switch inside the cabin, that can be used to disable the alarm once the car has been opened with a proper key; so shoudln't be an issue if you open with either key.

      the older version of i20 used to come with 2 flip-keys (sportz and asta variants) but they are now providing only one flip-key and the duplicate key being a manual one in the latest version of i20.
      in case one has lost the flip-key or due to any other reason, he can't use the flip-key at that point of time, there is no option left other than unlocking the car with the manual one, which obviously triggers the anti-theft siren. so, what's the point giving the duplicate one as a manual key when it can't be used in a case of emergency or something.

      I am pretty sure there would be a manual way of stopping the alarm. Did you guys read the manual thoroughly? Usually will be explained there

      Yes, the earlier model also used to come with either TWO FLIP KEYS or TWO NORMAL KEYS depending on the variant.

      With the new variant,
      ERA= TWO NORMAL KEYS
      MAGNA= TWO NORMAL KEYS
      MAGNA(O)= ONE FLIP & ONE NORMAL KEY
      SPORTZ= ONE FLIP & ONE NORMAL KEY
      ASTA= TWO SMART KEYS (Keyless Entry & Push Button Start)

      I have the SPORTZ variant.

      It Triggers the Alarm in My car not the Immobilizer. I can start the car With the normal key but it starts Beeping.

      That is a perfectly Good reason, But GOD forbid if I lose the Flip key and use the Normal key, the car will beep on opening doors then starting engine and so on.

      My point is : The duplicate key provided with the car is supposed to work Perfectly in my case it triggers Alarm.

      Precisely My feelings. Also you can say either No Remote or With Remote.

      And even if the manufacturer has provided ONE FLIP & ONE NORMAL KEY they should work in perfect tandem with each other.
      Whereas the NORMAL KEY triggers the Alarm in my Car.

      Basically the problem is that the security system is armed via the Flip key Remote and only that Remote can disarm it.

      But if I lose the Flip Key Remote and try to open the car with the Duplicate key = Normal Manual key it will trigger the alarm because it hasnt been disarmed from the remote. The system will instead think that its an intruder trying to force open the car Manually.
      I dont understand how can A manufacturer overlook such a defect.

      Hehe, My friend I have had a look at the manual but will do again.
      Even the salespersons were petrified at what I showed them today.

      There has to be disable button for the alarm. The sales person might not be knowing it, just dig up the manual a little more, or explore the cabin yourself.
