Approach your Hyundai Ioniq 5 or Kia EV6 with your key fob in your pocket and the doors will automatically unlock. Exit your car, close all the doors and trunk/hatch, and the doors will automatically lock 10 seconds later!

In this kit you will receive all the necessary hardware for a quick installation in your Ioniq 5 or Kia EV6. The only tool you may need is a pair of needle nose pliers.

Kit contains: Control module with 3M foam adhesive tape and four T-style wire taps. Optional is the case for the control module.

Please read these instructions prior to purchasing to make sure you are up for this task! It's an easy installation but if you've never worked on a car or electrical before, you may want to consider getting it professionally installed.

Remember, you are installing this device at your own risk! I am not responsible for any damage or change in vehicle behavoior that you incur due to improper installation of this device.

If your car does not have power-folding mirrors from the factory, only the auto-lock will work after installation. The auto-unlock function will not work any longer. You will have to use your key fob or the button on the door handle. In the US this applies to:

2022/2023/2024 Ioniq 5 SE & 2024 SEL

EV6 owners without automatic unlocking doors, you can add that feature with this device but there is a bug where the horn will intermittently chirp when it is activated. 

You can disable and enable this device using the following procedures. You should disable if the car is to go for repairs to not cause confusion for the technician.

  • Disable/enable by short pressing trunk button on the remote 3 times after turning off ignition and stepping outside the car.

Other noteworthy things:

  • If the car is on or placed into utility mode and you leave the car, it will not lock
  • If the car is in accessory mode and you leave the car it will lock. Keep those keys on you!
  • If you close and leave the car before your passenger doors or rear hatch are closed, it will auto lock the car after all remaining doors are shut

Note: If your car doesn't have the power tailgate/trunk opening button on your keyfob, you will not be able to remotely disable the device. You can disconnect the cable from the module in this case.

My manual shows multiple ways of installing the device in both Ioniq 5 and EV6 but there are many other possible ways to install. Please see these links for more installation information for Kia EV6. Lots of good information here. You can install in the cargo area as well as under the wireless charging pad:
