NHTSA safety recall results (30)

Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


04V131
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 3.5-liter V-6 engines, 4-wheel drive and antilock braking systems (ABS), if the brake pedal is depressed at speeds between 3 and 12 mph when the brake pad friction surfaces are wet, a vibration may occur between the brake discs and pads causing ABS sensor electronic signal noise to develop. At speeds below 5 mph, the ABS sensor signal noise may cause the ABS electronic control unit (ECU) to activate the ABS, extending the stopping distance. If an extended stopping distance occurs, it could result in a crash.
Dealers will reprogram the ABS ECU. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during April 2004. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Component not known


01V388
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 2.7-liter V-6 engines, improperly manufactured crankshaft position sensors (CPS) were installed. The CPS cases were improperly manufactured and did not meet dimensional specifications. Internal gaps within the cases allowed epoxy to contact the printed circuit board, which resulted in cracking of the circuit board capacitor. A damaged CPS capacitor could result in engine stalling.
Dealers will replace the CPS. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the first quarter of 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
