Input your Vehicle Identification Number to validate eligibilty for the Anti-Theft Software Upgrade
What will Hyundai do?
In response to increasing thefts targeting Hyundai vehicles without push-button ignitions and immobilizing anti-theft devices, we are introducing a free anti-theft software upgrade for affected customers. The anti-theft software upgrade will be made available for various models beginning in February 2023 through April 2023 for a total of approximately 3.8 million vehicles.
How will it work?
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 vehicle cannot be started when subjected to the popularized social media theft mode.
What should you do?
