...an ABS multi-fuse rated at a lower amperage to limit the module operating current.


The lower amperage will allegedly protect against too much current which can cause a short-circuit.


As of April, Hyundai was aware of 18 Santa Fe Sport engine compartment fires caused by the ABS modules.


Hyundai Santa Fe Sport owners should park outside and away from anything that could burn until dealers make these second repairs.


The U.S. Santa Fe Sport ABS recall includes more than 151,200 SUVs and an ABS recall in Canada includes more than 52,300 Santa Fe Sports.


Santa Fe Sport ABS recall notification letters are expected to be mailed June 25, and all SUVs from the 2020 recall will need to be repaired.


Anyone with questions about the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport ABS recall can contact the automaker at 855-371-9460 and ask about recall number 205.
