Hyundai Online Shop Manuals Access

Here's the HMAService URL for those wishing to access the online Hyundai shop manuals. It finally occurred to me to post an easily accessible reference to avoid the nuisance of repeatedly posting it in individual responses. You'll need Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat and also register a password (free) for access. If you have trouble displaying the graphics, you'll need to download several Adobe plug-ins (accessible on site under, "Site Requirements").

    Hi ray_h1, good idea. Just a quick note - rather than have two separate discussions for the same purpose, I deleted the one on the Azera board and linked this one there. That way people can get to it from either place.

    Thanks for posting this.
  • ray_h1ray_h1 Posts: 1,134
    Any chance you can do your linking magic with the other Hyundai discussions? All Hyundai makes' shop manuals for all years are available online at the same URL. (Or is this something I can do?)
  • I tried the link (after registering) but failed to locate the online manuals. Do you need something other than a "public" account? (My daughter's 2001 santa fe suddenly decided not to accept any gas in the fuel tank - I was able to thread a small hose into the tank which either let it vent or hold open whatever had the fill closed off. I would sure like to see the details on the emission system before she needs to refuel!) Thanks!
  • teddennis, I don't guarantee this'll work, but try logging on to Once you've done so, you'll probably get a page that consists of new news. Look at the top of the column on the left for "service information". If it's there, click it and you'll be taken to a page with several tabs at the top. The one with the service manuals is labeled "shop". Fill in the provided spaces for model, year, engine, etc. and click the "shop" tab and you should be taken to the manual you've indicated. Good luck.
  • I've written a guide to accessing the technical information on Hyundai's website, including the ins and outs of registering. There is also another one out there from a guy on SantaFeForum; we developed them independently but he incorporated some of my information into his guide. I plan on putting some of his stuff into mine but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Between the two, though, there is a pretty good guide to finding whatever you need.
  • Thanks a bunch. Either I completely missed the "service information" link yesterday or it didn't appear after I first created the account. I really appreciate you taking the time to spell it out. -Ted
  • And if you don't find what you want under shop, there is a boatload of information (including schematics and componenent locator photos for many years of models) in the ETM (Electric Troubleshooting Manual) section.

    RE 9
    Thru the manuals can you determine if the 06 and 07 Azera's use the same radio head and wire harness?
  • Provided the information is there for both years, so yes, you can determine that.

    I checked, and the connectors are the same for both years. The only difference is that it appears XM is available on 07 audio head units (but not on 06).
  • floridabob1floridabob1 Posts: 1,190
    RE 11
    If that is the case, the 07 head is in fact different from the 06 head.
    Maybe that is why changing the steering wheel remote switch, still does not give the 06 all of the functions of the 07, such as presets, etc.
    The 07 Azera sales brochure does not indicate XM as a feature of the audio system.
  • ray_h1ray_h1 Posts: 1,134
    There's no mention of integrated XM availabity in the '07 Azera brochure. Do you have a source for your information, doohickie?

    For those who cannot do an internet search...

    You're right - I am helplessly unable to conduct an internet search. So, Oh Great & Mighty Internet Grand Vizier, what do your current internet ruminations indicate will be be the earliest date we cyber sub-lifes can anticipate finding XM-equipped Hyundais in dealership showrooms? :P

    According to Hyundai Consumer Affairs today, 11-28-06, XM radio is not yet available on the 2007 Azera. The local dealer says that there is an accessory catalogue that lists Ipod Adapter, and XM update, but the corporate office seems to know nothing about these accessories.
    As the local dealer has not received any 2007 models, they could not provide any first hand information.
    One would think that the Hyundai Consumer Affairs department would know what features they have in their own cars.
  • There's no mention of integrated XM availabity in the '07 Azera brochure. Do you have a source for your information, doohickie?

    Yes. This thread is about accessing information in the Online Manual (WebTech). I got the information from WebTech. I've provided a couple links that explain how to do this. Why don't you check it out for yourself?

    Brochures are great and all, but they are not the subject of this thread.

    Get a WebTech logon ID, then go to Service Information > Azera > 6 - 2006 > SHOP > Body Electrical System > Audio System > SPECIFICATION. The options listed are:

    AM/FM/CD/MP3 (M445)
    AM/FM/Cassette/CD/MP3 (M455)
    AM/FM/Cassette/6CDC/MP3 (M465)

    Then go to the same point in the 2007 Azera information. The options listed are:

    AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 (M445)
    AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 (M445S)
    AM/FM/Cassette/CD/MP3 (M455)
    AM/FM/CD/MP3 (M455S)
    AM/FM/Cassette/6CDC/MP3 (M465)
    AM/FM/XM/6CDC/MP3 (M465S)

    I was not going by brochure information.
    I was reporting about a live conversation that I had with a rep. of Hyundai Consumer Affairs. His name is Matt.
  • If you want to know what's in the online manuals, I've given you that. If you want to discuss what is or is not available on the 07 Azera, I think maybe this isn't the right thread for that.

    This might be a better thread to discuss that.

    many of te early SF's had issues with fueling cutting off before the tank was full. It had something to do with the way the tank was designed to straddle the driveshaft.

    I don't know the particulars as mine was an 03 however it was a known issue. I would look under the TSB tab once you log in and enter your info.

    Just to keep this somewhat on topic I will mention that KIA also has a similar tech site at It is very interesting to compare the vehicles that share common issues/components between companies.

    It's unfortunate that Hyundai designed this system to require Internet Explorer. I have a Mac and use Firefox, so I'm out of luck.

    RE: 19
    My point is that the manuals and brochures are not always correct for US delivered models.
  • ray_h1ray_h1 Posts: 1,134
    Shoot, Hyundai's shop manuals aren't always correct, PERIOD. Yesterday I was trying to help someone out on another (non-Edmunds) forum with a CEL/disabled engine problem in his '02 Sonata's 2.4L I4. At 60K miles, his ECM threw a bad camshaft position sensor code. My bound edition of the '03 Sonata shop manual glibly identified the crankshaft position sensor as being mounted near and driven by the exhaust camshaft under the valve cover (!!!). I went round & round with that but finally verified with a schematic diagram of the emissions control system a dozen pages or so farther ahead that the sensor in the above described location was really the camshaft position sensor after all as I suspected. (Makes me wonder whether at least some complaints about inept Hyundai dealership service techs has more to do with the poor schleps being helplessly baffled by misinformation in the shop manuals...) Turns out the guy's problem will be a simple 30 minute fix just by removing the camshaft/valve cover, disconnecting the signal lead and replacing the camshaft position sensor, reconnecting the signal lead and replacing the camshaft/valve cover. Hyundai needs some native English speakers to proofread these manuals before they go to the printer. (Or contract with Helm in the U.S. to handle all the proofreading and publication chores as Honda does - Honda's U.S. shop manuals are a model of clarity.)

    RE: 23
    You are right.
    Not only does the company not communicate well with with its' customers. but the several dealers I have spoken with have all complained about the lack of technical support they have received. A perfect example is that most dealers have not yet received their computer updates to include 07 models and parts
  • You can look the stuff up on WebTech. I realize the manuals are not perfect, but they communicate with customers better than just about any other automaker in terms of even allowing owners to see the info on WebTech for free.

    As for communication regarding technical issues, my Elantra threw a code that the dealer claimed they had never seen before. They went through the troubleshooting flow chart step by step (I know because they gave me regular updates and I was able to follow along in WebTech). When they got to the end and the problem wasn't solved, they contacted the Hyundai tech support line and eventually they solved the problem.

    Maybe my experience isn't typical, but I felt the dealer did everything by the book and when the book wasn't good enough, Hyundai came through to solve the problem.

    RE: 25
    Consider yourself lucky!
    I have received no help from Hyundao corporate in the 11 months that I have owned my Azera.
    Today I called them to attempt to find a part used on the Hyundai Grandeur, the Korean and Australian version of the Azera. Not only did they not know where to get the part from a Hyundai US parts distribution center, but they could not direct me to Hyundai International.
    The rep. suggested that I attempt to find a retailer in Australia.
    Talk about the right hand not knowing what the left is doing.
  • If you're trying to get a part from Australia or Korea that is not normally available in the U.S., the dealer cannot help you. My best advice is to try contacting one of the non-corporate sites such as or; if they can't help you, I know of a forum that has several Aussie Elantra owners that may be able to help you out. Email me using the address in my profile.
  • floridabob1floridabob1 Posts: 1,190
    RE: 27
    Thanks for the advice, but I was able to modify my lamps enough to eliminate the need for the part.
    By the way, I was at the BMW dealer yesterday, and they are able to access the EURO parts site at their parts department.
    They are also able to order parts from those "non US' sites.
  • So buy a Beemer if it makes you happy.

    RE: 229
    Yet, another brilliant posting.
    I was under the assumption that the purpose of these forums is to pass along information as well as thoughts and feelings about the particular vehicle as well as the comparison to other brands.
    Why so hostile?
  • Okay, maybe that was a snarky comment to make. But Hyundai dealers in America will not do what BMW dealers do. I offered some alternatives, and you reply by saying, "Well, BMW dealers will do it."

    You took my comment as hostile, but I took the previous comment the same way, as it you're trying to imply Hyundai dealers are less than adequate for not going to the ends of the earth for parts not normally sold in the U.S.

    Let's try it a little more diplomatically, then:

    Hyundai is an economy car dealer. BMW is a luxury car dealer. I think it is a little unfair to compare the two in this area. I can see why BMW dealers would offer this service, since it is not uncommon for someone to buy a Euro-spec BMW and ship it the U.S. I would say that if this ever happens with a Hyundai, it is an extremely rare event. As such, there is virtually no demand for Hyundai to make their worldwide parts available to the U.S. market. That would entail quite a bit of expense to even set up the mechanisms to do it, and since Hyundai is more about economy than prestige, there is no real incentive for them to do it.
