It boils down to lack of product knowledge & features by typical Hyundai dealer sales personnel coupled with the low sales rate of Azera in the US. Many of us here that actually own / lease Azera know more about the vehicle than the dealers, and in some cases Fountain Valley.
The various program settings available to you should have been explained at the time of purchase. Now, after the fact you will be selecting a service write-up to be performed via a mechanic hooking up a hand held device for programming your vehicle.
Trust me when I say the service department will at least try to charge you.
Let us know how you make out.

Thanks for the reply. One of my neighbors told me it was free when he had it done at the dealership. He owns a 2007 Azera.
Sidenote, he has been a big contributor in making me a Hyundai believer a few years ago

A similar discussion was had on the Sonata board months ago.
Call it ignorance on the part of the dealer and/or buyer, the auto locks are STANDARD equipment and should be a part of the dealer prep. Even if a car is several months old before the buyer finds out his car has this feature, the dealer should program it at no charge as the dealer was supposed to do this prior to delivery. On the Sonata, the programming takes less than 5 minutes--should be the same on the Azera.

My local dealership has never attempted to charge me for programing features.

re. 16: "Call it ignorance on the part of the dealer and/or buyer, the auto locks are STANDARD equipment and should be a part of the dealer prep".
You are of course correct. Most buyers, myself included assume the dealer would inform/disclose product features at the time of purchase.
Simple dealer professionalism.

Thanks for all the feedback. I figured it might be programmable but the
owners manual doesn't mention it and I hadn't asked the dealer about
it yet, just got the car 12/31 and learning about it. I'll let you know if I get it

Got my locks programmed yesterday at no charge. Service guy said it was
a "customer option" but the salesman failed to tell me about it. I learned
it was available from this forum and thanks to all that told me.

The service department did not at first know what i was talking about. They asked me how did i find out about the locks and i referred them to this forum. They programmed the locks for free. The locks are programmed to automatically lock when i put the car in drive.
#22 of 23 My Azera wish list is a simple one.
Apr 27, 2008 (6:46 pm)
Three wishes, two of which are addressed by the '09 Korean-market Grandeur:
1) A more subdued color for the fake wood, such as that in the new Sonata, to replace the current liver-maroon.
2) Blue rather than green for the HVAC and audio controls.
3) Ventilated, or at least perforated, leather seats. Sticking to your shirt is icky.

I installed a 20+ piece wood(liver-maroon)kit lately and I really wished I could have installed any number of really nice wood colored kits out there, sigh, oh well, it does look nice and I find myself taking my eyes off the road now and then and smiling. Oh, check Hyundai Azera 2006.
