My abs brake module failed on Tuesday afternoon 12/13/17. 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. We were going straight and almost hit the car in front of us. I bought the Genesis in oct. 2011 new. It is a 2012 with 32,789 miles.

The contact owns a 2011 Hyundai Genesis. When applying the brakes, the brake pedal traveled to the floorboard without stopping the vehicle. The contact had to pump the brake pedal in order for the vehicle to stop. When the vehicle was stopped with the brake pedal depressed, the pedal would lower unintentionally; however, the vehicle would begin to slowly move forward at the same time. The contact took the vehicle to a certified mechanic who diagnosed that the electronic control system and abs failed and needed to be replaced. The contact notified the anderson Hyundai dealer and was informed that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 13v489000 (service brakes, hydraulic). The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and reiterated the dealer's diagnosis. The approximate failure mileage was 118,000.

Intermittent brake failures. Seems there has been a recall for bad brake fluid on this model year Hyundai Genesis sedan. Hyundai would not cover this vehicle under the recall when contacted. The vehicle has an intermittent soft brake pedal which goes all the way to the floor under hard and soft braking conditions, whether moving fast or slow and in all weather conditions. The brake pads and all 4 rotors are in good repair. There is no air in the brake lines. It appears to be the abs module that is failing and causing unsafe braking conditions without warning. There are numerous online forum complaints about this module which seems to be a fault in design by Hyundai. My hope is that NHTSA can inform other owners of this model year that unsafe braking conditions can happen at any time from failure of this abs module.

While driving with family on day before father-in-laws funeral my brake pedal went to floor. After restarting several times same thing experienced. No fault codes seen read many online forum posts with same problems. Braking power reduced by approx 70%. Scary to drive car now. This should be recalled. All posts point to abs unit failure. Dealer called for and did TSB change to high temp brake fluid at last service. Related to attempt and prevent this?? could very well be. Please help.

2009 Hyundai Genesis with 4. 6 liter v8 engine experienced brake failure at approximately 9:00 am while traveling at approximately 40 mph. The brake pedal went soft and went to floor with greatly reduced braking affect. No warning lights appeared on the instrument panel indicating a brake failure or any other problem with the vehicle. The vehicle was brought to the local Hyundai dealership who indicated that a service notification had been issued concerning the brake fluid (campaign #tl6 20c022ro) and the fluid would be replaced. After the fluid was replaced the brakes were still inoperative. The dealership service department next said the brake abs module had failed (hecu). The costly abs module was replaced and the brake operation returned to normal.

My wife was coming back home from dropping off the kids at school, when traffic was coming to a stop in front of her. When she tried to apply the brakes, the brake pedal went to the floor with almost no resistance. Fortunately, she was able to stop before she hit the other stopped cars. The dealer has informed me that the abs module has failed on the car. From looking at this site, I am not the first driver with this problem. Seems to me that Hyundai got a bad batch of abs modules. I would appreciate if nthsb could correlate the VIN numbers of those reporting this problem to see if there is a pattern of close vins. Hyundai should make this right as this is a major safety issue. There was no warning or indication of anything wrong with the brakes until they just suddenly failed to operate. The dealer has confirmed to me that there was absolutely no preventative maintenance or service that I could have or should have done to prevent this from happening. . Read more...

Last week I was driving my 2009 Genesis without any prior incidents or notification, the brakes went out. The car did not stop and it only stopped when I bumped the brakes and pushed the pedal all the way to the floor. Luckily, no car was coming the other direction as the car finally stopped half way in the intersection. The vehicle was taken to the dealership and they advised me the vehicles abs module system failed, not covered under warranty. The cost to replace this part is very expensive. Im very afraid to drive my vehicle. Apparently, Hyundai has known about this issue since July 2012. This is a huge safety issue.

The brake pedal goes to the floor when stopping the car. Once stopped you have tp pump the brakes to keep the car from moving forward. The Hyundai dealer indicated that this was an abs failure and he has replaced many units already. . My car is out of warranty. I went on to the Hyundai owners forum for the Genesis and this has happened alot to these cars. Hyundai has replaced these abs units when the car was out of warranty. This is a safety issure and a failure to warn owners of a continuing problem.
