 Important Recall Campaign Information

 

Date: September 6, 2016

 

Attn: Dealer Principal/General Manager/Service Manager/Parts Manager

 Subject: Recall Campaign 149: 2016 Tucson Dual Clutch Transmission Reprograming

 

Affected Vehicles

Hyundai has launched a safety recall to reprogram the Transmission Control Module (TCM) with updated software on certain 2016 Model Year Hyundai Tucson vehicles equipped with a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

 

Reason for this Recall

In higher ambient temperatures and specific operating conditions, the transmission clutch application logic can result in a delayed transmission engagement when accelerating from a stop.  If the accelerator pedal is steadily depressed for approximately 1.5 to 2 seconds, the vehicle will begin to accelerate and normal driving is resumed.  However, if the accelerator pedal is repeatedly cycled, the vehicle will not accelerate.

 

Service Action

  • Dealers must perform this Recall Campaign on all affected vehicles prior to customer retail delivery and whenever an affected vehicle is in the shop for any maintenance or repair. DO NOT DELIVER any of the affected vehicles until the necessary procedures have been performed.
  • The Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #16-01-038 was launched today, 9/06/16, and describes the procedure to reprogram the TCM.
  • Service campaign TMM will be inactivated today, 9/06/16 and any uncompleted TMM VINs will become part of recall campaign 149. The update procedure is the same.
  • Affected VINs are posted on WebDCS> Service Tab> Information> Uncompleted Campaign VIN Listing – Dealer Stock and Retailed.

 

Customer Notification

Hyundai Motor America will notify all owners of the vehicles described above to return their vehicles to their Hyundai dealers for repair. Customer notification letters of the recall campaign are scheduled to be mailed in late September, 2016.

 

 

Thank you for your prompt attention to this important safety matter and continued commitment to taking care of Hyundai customers.

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

This notice applies to your vehicle, VIN: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

 

Dear Hyundai Tucson Owner:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.  Hyundai has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain Model Year 2016 Hyundai Tucson vehicles equipped with a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) produced beginning on May 20, 2015 through May 31, 2016.  Our records indicate that your vehicle is equipped with a DCT and falls within this production date range.

 

What is the problem?

If the accelerator pedal is steadily depressed for approximately 1.5 to 2 seconds, the vehicle will begin to accelerate and normal driving is resumed.  However, if the accelerator pedal is repeatedly cycled, the vehicle will not accelerate.  Inability to move the vehicle in traffic may increase the risk of a crash.

 

What will Hyundai do?

  • Your Hyundai dealer will reprogram the Transmission Control Module. This procedure will be performed at no charge to you.  The actual time required to perform the procedure should be less than 1 hour, however your vehicle may be needed longer; therefore, we recommend scheduling a service appointment to minimize inconvenience.
