Hyundai recalls over 15,000 i30 vehicles in Germany due to fire risk

In Germany, 15,416 units of the Hyundai i30 from the production period November 7, 2006 to December 14, 2010 have to go to the authorized workshop for about 20 minutes.

“The ABS module can ignite due to a short circuit,” a spokesman for the Germany headquarters explained on request. According to the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), the entry of dirt and moisture into the component is responsible for this.

The agency identifies the campaign with the internal code “01D010” for around 1.4 million vehicles worldwide. However, it is unclear whether other model series are also included. As early as 2018, a recall for Sonata and Grandeur revolved around such a problem. For the first generation of the i30 there was already a major measure at the beginning of the year due to airbag problems.

As the spokesman said, the Hyundai partners are now installing a new relay kit to prevent a fire in the engine compartment in the future. The campaign is scheduled to start this week. No accidents due to the problem are known. The spokesman said the error had become noticeable during internal quality controls.
