What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing error, an electronic control circuit board in the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) module will short circuit when the components are exposed to moisture.

What are the hazards?

There is a risk of an engine compartment fire, even when the vehicle is turned off, as the circuit is constantly powered. This could increase the risk of an accident, serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders, and/or damage to property.

The short circuit does not affect the functioning of the brake system.

What should consumers do?

Affected vehicles need to be parked in an open space and away from flammable materials and structures, i.e. not in a garage.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Hyundai Motor Company Australia and asked to contact an authorised Hyundai dealership to have a relay kit installed on the circuit board. This prevents the power surge and eliminates the risk of fire. This repair will be conducted free of charge.
