NHTSA safety recall results (171)

Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


02V290
On certain passenger vehicles, the driver seat belt buckle wiring could be damaged by interference with the driver seat cushion height adjuster mechanism. Damaged wiring could cause the seat belt warning lamp or the air bag wiring lamp to illuminate. It could also cause the air bag to open, preventing air bag deployment. Nondeployment of an air bag could increase the risk or severity of injury in a crash.
Dealers will install a new driver seat belt buckle, if necessary, and will place a protective cover over the driver seat belt buckle wiring to prevent damage from occurring. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during January 2003. Owners should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Component not known


03V257
On certain passenger cars and sport utility vehicles, the rear brake tubes pass behind the front suspension crossmember. Two steering gearbox mounting brackets are welded to the crossmember. On vehicles equipped with an antilock brake system (ABS), the rear brake tubes could contact both steering gearbox mounting brackets. On vehicles that are not equipped with ABS, the rear brake tubes may contact only the left mounting bracket. Contact between the rear brake tubes and the steering brackets could cause wear and corrosion that could result in brake fluid leakage. Fluid leakage could result in reduced braking capability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will reposition the rear brake tubes so they do not contact the mounting brackets, install brake tube clips to control the location of the rear brake tubes, and apply anti-corrosion material to the tubes in the areas where contact with the mounting brackets may have occurred. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the third quarter of 2003. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

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.

04V178
Some passenger vehicles contain a fuel tank assembly valve that may not close properly. If a vehicle with a fuel tank assembly valve that is not properly closed were to roll over, fuel may spill. Spilled fuel in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.
Dealers will install an additional fuel tank assembly valve. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during May or June 2004. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Component not known


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.

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.

Component not known


00V259
Certain Sonata vehicles equipped with 2.5 liter V-6 engines and all Elantra vehicles may experience intermittent low-speed engine stalling, which occurs if the MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor electrical signal is interrupted as a result of engine vibration transmitted to the MAF Sensor connector wiring harness. This condition can increase the risk of a crash.
Dealers will re-route the MAF Sensor connector wiring harness. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
