Components in automobile anti-lock braking systems can generate more electric current than valves can handle. This could lead to a short circuit. In a car’s combustion-friendly environment, short circuits can lead to fires. The problem can develop even when the vehicle is stationary.
Some of the cars included in this recall were recalled due to the same issue in February. But Hyundai says it is aware of two car fires that have been repaired as part of this recall campaign.
Dealers will fix the problem by installing a new fuse system.
