Check engine error code of P200a. Can't find a good explanation. on 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe

I'm not having a problem; it just came on but I'm anxious. Code states 'intake manifold runner performance (bank 1)). Can't find an explanation. Also, when we bought it (a year old) the horn didn't work and the low tire light comes on even when I have it at the correct psi. I checked the fuse and relay for the horn and they seem to be good when swapping out with others of same amps etc. HELP!!!!

P200A Intake Manifold Runner Performance (Bank 1) - General Information

Component Location






General Description

Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA) is used for an adjustment of automotive flap and it is operated with two position, open and close. It makes swirl among intake air to reduce emission under cold start condition. This is worm gear driver type which doesn't guarantee restoring to limp home position in the case of loss of current supply. (This doesn't have mechanical return force due to no return spring.)

DTC Description

If PCM detects that the opened or closed stop position is out of the specified value, It sets P200A.
How do you fix this problem? Any ideas welcome!
I have the same problem with my 2010 Santa Fe V6. Engine light and P200A code. Is it safe to drive without doing anything? I have to make a 500 mile drive this weekend.
Hello, I have a 2015 Hyundai Sonata with apx 11,000 miles. Apx 6 weeks ago 10,000 miles the vehicle would not go at full throttle 4500RPM. Explained to dealer they said not to drive Eco, Sport, Reg for long periods of time.. HAAA???? On 101 Fwy L.A. vehicle going 65-70MPH Big Rig in back vehicle would not go.. full throttle, RPM 4500-5000 my exit was next strolled off. NO WARNING LIGHT ON!! Was told Intake manifold was bad. Now told P200A, VCM Motor replaced. Never ever will I buy a Hyundai, first, last. Be very careful. They are aware of the problem. Please report to the National Transit Dpt. This is a serious problem & a very high risk issue.
We've had the same issue with my husband's 2015 Sonata. It's been to the dealer 4 times now and we are now filing a Lemon Law complaint.
I have a 2015 Sonata Limited w/2.4L engine with 21,600 miles on it. The other day on the highway the same issue happened. I was going about 65 MPH and stepped on the gas to pass someone and the car lost power momentarily. I finished my commute to work and when I went to lunch the engine light was on. I am at the dealership now and they said the problem is the VCM motor which they are replacing under warranty. We'll see if the problem arises again.
I have a 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe that needs the same part and I am being told that my 7year Emissions Warranty does not cover this. If you do not mind me asking where do you live? I live in Pennsylvania and am trying to find others with issues like mine to support my case.
