What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing defect, the circuit board in the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) module may short circuit when the components are exposed to moisture. This could result in a vehicle fire even when the vehicle is turned off.

Note: The short circuit does not affect the functioning of the brake system.

What are the hazards?

A vehicle fire may increase the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders, and/or damage to property.

What should consumers do?

Affected vehicles should be parked in an open space and away from flammable materials and structures, i.e. not in a garage.

If your vehicle displays an engine warning light, please stop driving and contact your local Hyundai dealer.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Hyundai Motor Company Australia in writing, requesting to make an appointment with their preferred authorised Hyundai dealership to have the component inspected and rectified, free of charge.
