Hyundai has decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall in the United States to replace the stop lamp switches of various 2007-2011 model year vehicles. Certain Accent, Elantra, Genesis Coupe, Santa Fe, Sonata, Tucson and Veracruz models are affected. On March 29, 2013, Hyundai notified NHTSA of this action.
During the affected models’ production periods, some vehicles were equipped with stop lamp switch assemblies that may experience intermittent switch point contact. This condition could potentially result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, intermittent ability to remove the vehicle’s shifter from the Park position, illumination of the “ESC” (Electronic Stability Control) indicator lamp in the instrument cluster, intermittent interference with operation of the cruise control feature, or intermittent operation of the stop lamps.
All owners of record with affected vehicles will be contacted by first class mail and instructed to bring their vehicles to Hyundai dealers to have the stop lamp switches replaced at no cost to owners.
A Vehicle Identification Number, commonly known as a VIN, is a unique
