  • Defect in ABS warning lamp prompts Hyundai Sonata recall!

About 65,000 of the Sonata sedans will be recalled because the warning light of the Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) in the dash is malfunctioning.

The ABS light of the Hyundai Sonata has been found to have a defect. The ABS lights present in the dashboard alert about problems with the anti-lock brakes. It seems the ABS lights in the Hyundai Sonata failed to alert the driver about problems in the anti-lock brakes.

The malfunctioning has resulted in the recall of 65,000 Hyundai Sonata sedans. Especially the 2015 to 2016 models of the Sonata are being recalled. The Sonata models manufactured from the 28th of May till the 21st of August 2015 are being recalled. According to Hyundai more than 64,744 Sonata in the US are affected by the recall. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is aware of the defect. The NHTSA believes the absence of a warning light increases the likelihood of a crash. Since the warning light doesn't illuminate the driver is not even aware a problem with the ABS light persists.

The Sonata vehicles with faulty ABS lights fail to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 135. The FMVSS details the ‘Light Vehicle Brake Systems’.

Hyundai will update the software in the control unit to fix the issue. Customers will have to bring their Sonatas to the dealers and will be serviced free of charge. The local dealers of Hyundai will update the software in the control unit. The recall of the Hyundai Sonata is scheduled to begin by the 11th of December 2015.
