Your HYUNDAI uses a remote key, which you can use to lock or unlock the driver and passenger doors or the rear trunk.

(1) Door Lock
(2) Door Unlock
(3) Trunk Unlock
(4) Panic

Locking your vehicle

To lock your vehicle:

1. Make sure all doors, the engine hood and the trunk are closed.

2. Press the Door Lock button (1) on the remote key to lock all doors.

3. The doors will lock and the hazard warning lights will blink.

4. Make sure the doors are locked by checking the position of the door lock button inside the vehicle.


Do not leave the keys in your vehicle with unsupervised children. Unattended children could place the key in the ignition switch and may operate power windows or other controls, or even make the vehicle move, which could result in serious injury or death.

Unlocking your vehicle

2. The driver’s door will unlock. The hazard warning lights will blink two times.

• Two press unlock setting:

If you press the Door Unlock button on the remote key again within four seconds, then all the doors will unlock.

Two press unlock setting can be changed according to owner’s preference in the cluster User Settings mode.

• User settings mode method:

To prevent damaging the remote key:

  • Keep the remote key away from water or any liquid and fire. Internal circuits may malfunction if the inside of the remote key gets damp (from liquids or moisture) or if it is heated. This can exclude the remote key from being covered under warranty.
  • Avoid dropping or throwing the remote key.
  • Protect the remote key from extreme temperatures.
