The following Hyundai and Kia vehicles have apparent defects with the ABS Module that is susceptible to suddenly catching fire while parked or driven:

  • 2015, 2019 and 2021 Kia Sportage
  • 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
  • 2020 Hyundai Tucson
  • 2018 Hyundai Genesis G80

The ABS module, also known as the hydraulic electronic control unit (HECU), can suffer a short-circuit from moisture trapped inside the module. This can occur even when the Hyundai and Kia vehicle is parked because the module is electrically charged when the ignition is turned off.
