The Hazard!

Sonata & Grandeur models are equipped with an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) which is designed to prevent wheel lock-up during sudden braking or on hazardous road surfaces. While the vehicle is not in operation the ABS Control Module remains powered ON and Hyundai Motor Company has identified that should moisture enter the ABS Control Module (for example from water from high pressure car washes), over time an electrical short could occur inside the ABS Control Module. As a result there could be an increased risk of an engine compartment fire while the vehicle is parked and the ignition switch is in the OFF position.
