US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 02V105
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 145,355


Summary:
On certain passenger vehicles, an intermittent condition that leads to illumination of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) air bag warning light could result from motion of the side impact air bag wiring harness and side impact air bag wiring harness connector, which mount to the adjustable seat cushion assembly. This condition relates only to the side impact air bags and could prevent air bag deployment during a crash where such deployment should occur. Non-deployment of the SRS side impact air bag could increase the risk of injury during a side impact crash.

Remedy:
Dealers will more securely fasten the side impact air bag wiring harnesses and connectors to the vehicle's front seat cushion frames. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began May 28, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free label and inserts within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Dates of Manufacture:
