The brake pedal mounted switch that turns the brake lights on and off as well as releases the transmission shift lever lock so it may be shifted out of park may stick in the on position. Brake lights may remain illuminated as a result, and the transmission shift lever may be moved from the park position without the brake pedal being depressed. This could lead to a crash.

Recall repairs on your Hyundai must be performed by a Hyundai dealership. Hyundai will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in September, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Hyundai dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
