Default Panic alert while at the shop?

Hi Gencoupe.com,

Dropped off my '13 2.0 Premium last Thursday to replace the rear bumper after it got dinged in a parking space.

This morning, I got an email from BlueLink - 'Panic alert', like somebody pressed the SOS button on the rear view mirror.

My question is: does anything else prompt a panic alert, e.g. impact, car alarm, etc? Interested in knowing before I ask the shop what was going on.

Thanks!

No - why would impact damage be covered by the warranty? The part didn't fail, someone smacked it and it broke.

It wasn't a hyundai dealership, just a body shop my insurance sent me to.

in the future, pick your own body shop. no, your insurance company can not make you go to theirs. i would simply go to the shop and demand some answers. hey, they could have been adjusting the mirror and- oops, ya never know!

They didn't make me go, I chose it and it's well reviewed - so I suspect it's nothing. Just wanted to double check.

In my experience that is how the dealer finds your car in the big lot they hit the panic button I have had the same thing happen to me.

I used to work as a tech for hyundai and we would always use the panic button to find a specific car. Makes it much easier than looking through 400+ cars.

Does the "panic" button on the key fob send a message to Blue link?

There are a couple of previous threads where several people reported getting random panic alerts for no reason. Before I canceled Bluelink I would get one from my car 2-3 times a week while it was sitting in my driveway doing nothing. So, probably they were looking for your car, or could also be random.
