    Default ABS brake module failed

    Members don't see this ad
    My ABS brake module failed on Tuesday afternoon. I had very little braking power, pedal goes to the floor. I bought it to the dealer and they said the brake module needs to be replaced. The service guy said they have to have it inspected by Hyundai warranty people to get it approved because I have the extended warranty and the price would be about $2,300 to fix.

    I bought the Genesis in Oct. 2011 new. It is a 2012 with 32,789 miles.

    I just had mine replaced last week under warranty. Took them a week due to a 2 day delay waiting on warranty co. approval. Offered a loaner but I drove my Camaro for a few days instead

    $2477 cost to the warranty/insurance co. My cost: $0.

    Do you know if the ABS Module also controls the traction control? The other day my transaction control kicked on and after that my brake pedal goes to the floor before it grabs.

    Stability Control yes for sure it uses the ABS.

    Traction Control: probably. Most modern cars retard timing and cut throttle reduce rear wheel torque, bogging the engine. The early 2012 5.0 was notorious for bogging while mashing the gas while turning out into traffic, to the point where HMA issued a TSB and had ECU/TCUs reprogrammed (but that was as much a SC thing as a TC thing). I'll bet the Genesis also uses the brakes as well to help transfer torque if one of the rear wheels is spinning (snow, ice, etc.). Not sure, don't get that around here too often

    If you still have a soft pedal, get it looked at.

    I've had some problems with my braking also. But, instead of the pedal going to the floor mine stays at the top and doesn't seem to be engaging the brake. This has happened 2 or 3 times.
    I took it to the dealership and they said they couldn't find a problem and charged me $80. (At least they changed the oil.)
    My warranty is long gone and don't have the extended. Is this something that I can fix?

    A firm pedal and no brakes (like a vacuum booster is leaking or has no vacuum) is not something I've experienced on this car.

    Not unless you have a computer interface and a brake fluid flushing/bleeding machine.

    And can we assume your warranty covered all of that?

    Not unless he had an extended warranty. The HECU unit is covered by the normal 5 year - 60K warranty. Since his forum join date is Aug 2011, I am guessing that his regular warranty has expired.
