CALL NOW - 716.923.2100
Hyundai has recently released an anti-theft software update that aims to improve the security of its vehicles. The update includes a new immobilizer system that prevents thieves from starting the car without the proper key, as well as a new alarm system that alerts the owner and surrounding area when the car is being tampered with.

This update is especially important given the rising number of car thefts across the country. By enhancing the security features of its vehicles, Hyundai is taking a proactive approach to protect its customers and their property. The update is available for many of Hyundai's popular models and can be installed by calling or visiting Northtown Hyundai to set an appointment.
Software Upgrade Details
The software upgrade modifies certain vehicle control modules on Hyundai vehicles equipped with standard "turn-key-to-start" ignition systems. As a result, locking the doors with the key fob will set the factory alarm and activate an "ignition kill" feature so the vehicles cannot be started when subjected to the popularized theft mode. Customers must use the key fob to unlock their vehicles to deactivate the "ignition kill" feature.

 More information is available at, where customers can input their vehicle's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to find out when it is eligible for the software upgrade.
