The problem: A component within the ABS system could short circuit and cause a fire. Neither automaker has yet determined the root cause of the problem.

The fix: Dealers will install new fuses in the affected vehicles’ ABS modules, free of charge, to mitigate the risk of a fire.

How to contact the manufacturer: The automakers will contact owners via mail starting in March. Owners may also call Hyundai at 855-371-9460, and Kia at 800-333-4542.

NHTSA campaign number: NHTSA’s number for Hyundai’s recall is 22V056, and Hyundai’s own number is 218. NHTSA’s number for Kia’s recall is 22V051, and Kia’s own number for this recall is SC227.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.

If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.
