Introduction to WebTech

The Hyundai Service Technology Website, the key component of which is WebTech, is a link to company technical data for Hyundai automobiles. To my knowledge, Hyundai is the only automaker that is so open with their techinical data.

With free registration, there is free access to the site. There are several requirements to use the site: If you need the Adobe or Macromedia products, there are links available to download and install them from inside WebTech (more on that later; look for Site Requirements). You can navigate WebTech without these programs, but you will not be able to see all the content, especially diagrams, pictures, etc. WebTech will NOT work with Firefox, so if that is your browser of choice, sorry.

Registration

To register your own username, follow these steps:
  1. Go to the Hyundai Service Technology Website.
  2. Select the ink that says, “Click Here to register for an account” (below the Login button).
  3. Fill in the requested information on the account creation page. Make sure you provide a valid email address which your password will be sent to.
  4. Click on “Create Account”.
  5. On the page that comes up, click on “Back to login page”.
  6. Enter the user name you provided in the User Name space and select the link that says, “Forgot your password?” (Although this may not be necessary, many people have reported never getting the email with their password until going through this step, including this author.)
  7. Save the email with your password. It will be an ugly computer-generated password that will be impossible to remember. To the best of anyone’s knowledge, there is no way to change your Hyundai WebTech password.
  8. Or, if you prefer, just use the username and password from the forum.

Site map

Here is a brief site map of the Hyundai Service Technology Website. Upon logging in, you will be taken to the Welcome Page. There is a column of buttons along the left that looks like this:



Here is a brief discussion of the links available from this navigation bar. The information that is most likely to be useful to owners is marked in light blue.

WebTech Service Information

Upon clicking the Service Information link from the Hyundai Service Tecnology site, you enter WebTech. There is a message which reads:

Welcome to Webtech

WebTech is the online version of the InfoTech service information system used by Hyundai. From the top of the screen, please select the publication contents you would like to view.

Next, make your vehicle selection. Note that the more narrowed down your choices are, the shorter the time it will take to display the contents. Selecting the vehicle model and year will automatically populate the contents pane with publication contents for chosen vehicle.

If you would like to conduct a word search on document index information, click Search in the upper right and the Search pane will appear. Type search terms and select the publications to search in (defaults to all), then click Search.


Those are the basics of how the site works. When doing a project, however, it can be difficult to find the exact information desired. Where most consumer oriented service manuals (Chiltons, Haynes, etc.) group all information on a given topic together, WebTech organizes it a little differently. There are several types of information, each accessible by a tab on the page. The tabs contain the following information:

I hope you find this information helpful. Hyundai is one of the best automakers out there as far as sharing information with its owners. It is my hope this guide will help Hyundai owners make the best use of this information. If you have any comments at all about this page, please contact me (Doohickie) and let me know if you have any suggestions for this guide.
