PhotoHyundai Motor America is recalling 429,686 model year 2006-2011 Elantras and model year 2007-2011 Elantra Touring vehicles.

Moisture may enter the Anti-lock Brake (ABS) Module and result in an electrical short.

An electrical short within the ABS Module may cause an engine compartment fire, even when the car is turned off, increasing the risk of an injury.

What to do

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will install a relay in the vehicle's main junction box to prevent the risk of an ABS short-circuit while the car is turned off -- free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin April 3, 2020.

Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at (855) 371-9460. Hyundai's number for this recall is 188.
