2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Recalls

The Brake Light Switch May Fail Prematurely

The affected vehicles are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

The Air bag System May Not Properly Detect a Front Seat Passanger

Hyundai is recalling certain 2007 through 2009 Santa Fe models because the air bag system may not properly detect a smaller occupant in the passenger seat. Improper detection may cause the front passenger airbag not to deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the front passenger. Dealers will update the occupant classification software to correct this concern. The Hyundai recall number is 105.

The Driver's Airbag May Not Deploy as Designed

The clock spring electrical contact for the driver's airbag may become damaged through normal usage over time. The electrical circuit will experience a high resistance condition and in the event of a crash, the driver's airbag will not deploy, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the contact assembly as necessary to correct this condition. The Hyundai recall number is 103.
