01V345
On these passenger vehicles, the driver and front passenger seat belts may not extend and retract smoothly through the D-ring guides mounted on the body pillars aft of the doors. If the seat belts do not extend and retract smoothly, they may twist in the D-ring guides and make it inconvenient to extend and retract the seat belts. If the seat belts are inconvenient to use, the seat occupant may not be inclined to wear the seat belts properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Dealers will install a stopper over each front seat belt D-ring guide to assist the seat belt to smoothly extend and retract. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 10, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

01V346
On certain passenger vehicles equipped with 1.5-liter or 1.6-liter engines that were originally sold or are currently registered in the states of Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, while driving at a steady throttle opening for an extended period of time during extremely cold ambient temperatures (below approximately -5 degrees Fahrenheit with high humidity), moisture in the combustion chamber can freeze and block the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve and hose. If the PCV hose freezes, combustion chamber gases are forced through the breather hose into the air intake hose and then into the throttle body. Moisture in the combustion chamber may freeze inside the throttle body bore and throttle body idle speed control circuit, resulting in the throttle valve not closing fully and ...
Dealers will install a new, relocated PCV hose. On the 2000-2001 Accents equipped with 1.5-liter engines that were produced through Jan. 31, 2001, dealers will additionally install a heated throttle body. Hyundai has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

01V362
On certain passenger vehicles, improperly manufactured powertrain control modules (PCM) were installed. The improperly manufactured PCMs contained a condenser that was not correctly installed onto the PCM printed circuit board. The incorrect installation of the condenser could result in damage to the ignition failure sensor. A damaged ignition failure sensor could result in engine stalling, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect the PCM to determine if it was manufactured during the affected production period. If necessary, the PCM will be replaced. Hyundai has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

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.

Component not known


00V096
The protective rubber boot which covers the ball joint connection between the windshield wiper motor drive arm and the windshield wiper drag link can stick to the surface of the drive arm. If the rubber boot sticks and the wiper motor is turned on, binding of the interface between the drive arm and drag link results, causing the ball joint connection to disengage. If the connection disengages, the windshield wipers are inoperative. Inoperative windshield wipers can contribute to reduced visibility during inclement weather.
Dealers will replace the protective rubber boot and will lubricate the new protective rubber boot where it contacts the drive arm. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during April 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
