ORIGINALLY, IN APRIL 2013, HYUNDAI RECALLED 1,059,824 MODEL YEAR 2007-2009 ACCENT AND TUCSON, MODEL YEAR 2007-2010 ELANTRA, MODEL YEAR 2007-2011 SANTA FE, MODEL YEAR 2008-2009 VERACRUZ, MODEL YEAR 2010-2011 GENESIS COUPE, AND MODEL YEAR 2011 SONATA VEHICLES. IN SEPTEMBER 2013, HYUNDAI INFORMED THE AGENCY THAT IT WAS ADDING MORE VEHICLES TO THIS CAMPAIGN, REPRESENTING AN ADDITIONAL 652,512 UNITS. THE TOTAL NUMBER OF VEHICLES BEING RECALLED IS NOW 1,712,336. IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, THE STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY MALFUNCTION. A MALFUNCTIONING STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY CAUSE THE BRAKE LIGHTS TO NOT ILLUMINATE WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED OR MAY CAUSE AN INABILITY TO DEACTIVATE THE CRUISE CONTROL BY DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL. ADDITIONALLY, A MALFUNCTIONING STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY ALSO RESULT IN INTERMITTENT OPERATION OF THE PUSH-BUTTON START FEATURE, AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE BRAKE-TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK FEATURE, PREVENTING THE SHIFTER FROM BEING MOVED OUT OF THE PARK POSITION AND CAUSE THE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) MALFUNCTION LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE.

    Consequence

    FAILURE TO ILLUMINATE THE STOP LAMPS DURING BRAKING OR INABILITY TO DISENGAGE THE CRUISE CONTROL COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH. ADDITIONALLY, WHEN THE IGNITION IS IN THE 'ON' POSITION, THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTER MAY BE ABLE TO BE MOVED OUT OF PARK WITHOUT FIRST APPLYING THE BRAKE. THIS MAY LEAD TO UNINTENTIONAL MOVEMENT OF THE CAR WHICH MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

    What Owners Should Do

    HYUNDAI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE STOP LAMP SWITCH, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON APRIL 22, 2013. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HYUNDAI AT 1-800-633-5151. HYUNDAI'S RECALL CAMPAIGN NUMBER IS 110.

    Summary

    HYUNDAI IS RECALLING 393,714 MY 2006-2008 SONATA VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AN ADVANCED AIR BAG SYSTEM WHICH FEATURES AN OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM (OCS) IN THE RIGHT FRONT SEAT. THE PURPOSE OF THE OCS IS TO DISABLE THE RIGHT PASSENGER SEAT FRONT AIR BAG WHEN IT DETECTS THE PRESENCE OF A CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM OR SMALL CHILD IN THE RIGHT FRONT SEAT.

    What Owners Should Do

    DEALERS WILL VERIFY THAT THE OCS DOES NOT PROPERLY RECOGNIZE A PROPERLY SEATED ADULT OCCUPANT. AFTER VERIFICATION, DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE RIGHT FRONT SEAT CUSHION ASSEMBLY AND SHIP IT TO AN EVALUATION AND REPAIR FACILITY. THIS FACILITY WILL EVALUATE AND REPAIR OR REPROGRAM THE SEAT CUSHION AND OCS AS NECESSARY. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT MAY 26, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HYUNDAI AT 1-800-633-5151.
