    Default 2009 Genesis V6 Tech Pack

    Members don't see this ad
    Hello all,

    I recently traded in my Tiburon for an '09 Genesis with all the trimmings and I absolutely love it. That is until I woke up this morning, 6 days into owning the vehicle, and the battery is dead. I've read several of the other forums and am planning to check for the rubber stopper under the hood that lets the car know the hood is closed and it can fully shot off the electrical systems (I took my wife's car to work, so have to wait until I get home to check).

    This may be a stupid question, but from the sounds of things we're not supposed to use jumper cables on the Genesis, is that correct? I've seen everyone talking about towing their Genesis in to the dealership when there are battery issues, but I'm not sure if that's just because they can't get in the trunk (completely dead), or if we're truly just not supposed to jump off the car. My car had a little life left and the radio would even come on, so opening the trunk and such shouldn't be a problem.

    One other thing is that I leave my ipod hooked up in the console, would this drain the battery? I was assuming it would just drain the battery on the ipod (which I didn't care about, because I'd rather run through the battery every once in ahwile then leave it constantly hooked up and fully charged). If that will drain the battery I guess it's possible that it was user error and not the missing pad under the hood.

    Anyways, thanks for your help and I'm looking forward to getting this fixed!

    Of course you can 'jump' the Genny. Under the hood, left side looking in, there is a jumper cable access. Clearly marked. Hook your cables up there. No need for a tow.

    Early Genesis also had a smaller bumper that activated the alarm and put the car sleep mode that was replaced under a TSB. And on some early cars the small bumper came off.

    You can also get into the trunk with a dead battery by using the key inside the key fob.
    Semi hidden keyhole is located above license plate.

    This feature makes Hyundai look pretty brilliant when compared to some premium brands - Jaguar, are you listening? Dead batteries in Jags require contortionist moves to accomplish anything -- accessing the glove box or the trunk, for example, to make sure the tow truck driver doesn't steal the diamond stash in your trunk. Rest assured, you will get to know some tow truck drivers while you own one. You are also guaranteed to go crazy during the process of doing anything to the Jag, because nothing is clearly documented.

    Booze helps, as do the diamonds you'll have to cash in to help cover the hit you will take trying to sell the car.


    Thank you, Hyundai!

    This TSB applies to 2009 Genesis, Tiburon, Sonata, Tucson, Entourage and Elantra models. The vehicle alarm system may intermittently sound due to light contact of the hood switch pad with the hood switch.

    The correction involves replacing the hood switch pad with an updated pad that is 2.5mm longer. The current pad part number is 92736-2D000. The replacement (longer) pad is available as part number 92736-3A000.

    Open the hood and remove the rubber switch pad. Install the new pad (a light coat of lithium lube on the male portion may ease installation). Close the hood and press the LOCK button on the transmitter. Verify that all doors lock and that the hazard lights flash one time. Press the LOCK button on the transmitter two times to confirm the “Horn Answer Back” feature is operational.
