Yep, the module costs $4500. I found that out when my SCC went out. And, in case anyone doesn't know, I had purchased the Hyundai Certified Pre-owned Wrap Vehicle Service Contract, but the laser cruise control module is specifically excluded from coverage under that plan. Fortunately, the car was in the shop for other services as well, and was in the shop for over three weeks, which was ridiculous. So, I contacted the Dallas District Sales manager, and he was great and took care of the module. It's still working fine as of now. What I don't like is that there is not an option for the system to revert to a standard cruise control. The SCC either works, or it doesn't.Well, I have just read this and I have the exact situation. I have a 2012 Genesis. I was recently heading down the road here with ACC on. It works a short time and then I get the red light warning and it all goes dead. I took it in today for service and they claim the ACC module is bad and needs replacement. Exact as you described. To do this they say it is in the $4K range. Ridiculous!! Before I expend that money I would do a lot of research or just sell as is. I was a happy customer but this is wrong on many counts.
Yup, and I shudder to think about some of the disastrous decisions that some of these "autonomous" vehicles will be making for us.Having been an electronic wonk in the Army, I can tell you that a strong 'jamming' signal CAN do weird things electronics. I still don't quite "like" the ACC...the other night, in light traffic on I-71 in OH south of Columbus, I was cruising at about 70 mph, the speed limit there. I had the ACC on close range.... I'm in the middle lane of a three lane section of highway. I have a vehicle way up on front of me, and one coming up behind me. I have a (semi) truck coming up behind me in left lane (which he wasn't supposed to be in), goes zooming past me, then dives in front of me...of course, my ACC freaks out and starts slowing the car, and the car behind me is coming up fast now, so I had to tromp the pedal and shoot to the left lane to get around the truck that just passed me and cut in front of me to avoid the guy behind me plowing me....gawd....

If there is a pickup truck or 18 wheeler ahead of me in the lane to my left and that vehicle is going slower than I am, My 2012 Genesis 4.6 "thinks" that vehicle is my lane and applies the brakes right as I am about to pass.
Does it still work as a regular cruise control?
That is a hefty cost if it is just to keep it "automatic" Would be interesting to know the failure rate and component analysis to come to a conclusion as to why. I can't get more than three years out of a motion detector on the garage light, but it is a cheap fix by comparison. It may be a major design issue or it may be your is the only one of three that ever failed.
