Hyundai Genesis numbering 24,440 recalled for leaky Taillights which may display wrong gears

If you are searching for evidence on how inscrutable and complex contemporary car electronics   could be then here you have some fodder for your thoughts. Nearly 25000 Genesis sedans of Hyundai had to be recalled for leaky taillights which could show the wrong gear on the instrument panel display   or will result into delaying the drive engagement or reverse.

Hyundai had to recall some 24,400 Genesis sedan built for model year 2015 as per the announcement made by the company in February and the concerned vehicles were assembled during February 2014 to January 2015. These vehicles are yanked back for potentially leaking taillights. The NHTSA notification says that the leakage would result into water seeping into the lamp assembly located in the rear.

This diversified moisture could apparently upset Drivetrain of the Hyundai and force it to a twister of confusion. NHTSA says that this will show incorrect display of gears on the panel display and even slow down the gear movement when coming out of a parking lot. The NHTSA   document further says that the potential leakage is assumed to be coming from the reverse lights fixed in the lamp assembly in the rear, but no further details are revealed in the notice.

This is quite intriguing, but the impending danger is real, and NHTSA also warns that display of the wrong gear on the instrument panel would send the vehicle into another direction that intended which is certainly not desirable. 

Hyundai would redeem the issue by installing pads so that the water is not entering into the rear reverse lights. Till now there is no notification schedule issued for notifying the owners and if you own a Hyundai Genesis then you would want your car to display the correct gear so that you can drive in the direction you want. You can also contact Hyundai at 1-885-671-3059 for further action.
