Component not known


97V026000
The windshield wiper motor circuit breaker electrical contacts were contaminated during assembly.

Component not known


02V105
On certain passenger vehicles, an intermittent condition that leads to illumination of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) air bag warning light could result from motion of the side impact air bag wiring harness and side impact air bag wiring harness connector, which mount to the adjustable seat cushion assembly. This condition relates only to the side impact air bags and could prevent air bag deployment during a crash where such deployment should occur. Non-deployment of the SRS side impact air bag could increase the risk of injury during a side impact crash.
Dealers will more securely fasten the side impact air bag wiring harnesses and connectors to the vehicle's front seat cushion frames. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began May 28, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free label and inserts within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
