An electrical short that could cause an engine compartment fire is prompting a Hyundai recall that impacts 87,900 older model Hyundai Azera and Sonata sedans.
2006-2011 Azera, 2006 Sonata Recall
The recall impacts 2006-11 Hyundai Azera and 2006 Sonatas. The problem is that water could get into the antilock brake module and cause an electrical short. Hyundai says it could result in an engine compartment fire even when the car is turned off.
Dealers will install a relay in the vehicle’s main junction box to prevent the risk of an ABS short-circuit while the car is turned off.
Owners Will Be Notified in February
Hyundai will begin notifying owners Feb. 23. Owners can call the automaker at 800-633-5151, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
