Hyundai Santa Fe Problems

Engine Performance Problems Due to Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure

The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.

Rough Idle Due to Faulty EGR Switching Valve

On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.

Confirm Latest Software For Transmission Control Module and Correct Fuild For Proper Shift Quailty

Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

Hyundai Santa Fe Recalls

Seat Belt Warning Chime Does Not Sound

The warning chime that alerts occupants that their seat belts are not buckled may not sound due to wiring in the buckles being damaged by the seat's height adjuster mechanism. Dealers will inspect and reroute the wires in the front seat belt buckle harnesses to their proper location free of charge to resolve the concern.

Front Coil Springs May Break Due To Corrosion

The front coil springs may corrode and break, which can result in front tire damage and loss of vehicle control. This is most likely in areas where road salt is used. Dealers will inspect and replace affected coil springs as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Loss of Engine Power to the Wheels

The front axles direct engine power to the front wheels. Vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the right front axle may break. This could result in loss of engine power to the wheels and the vehicle would no longer be able to move under it own power. Also, if the parking brake is not applied when the vehicle is parked it could roll unexpectedly. Both of these conditions increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected axle shaft assembly to correct this concern.
