Hyundai Motor America is recalling 52,008 model year 2023-2024 Palisades, and model year 2023 Tucsons, Sonatas, Elantras & Konas.

The electronic controller for the Idle Stop & Go oil pump assembly may contain damaged electrical components that can cause the pump controller to overheat.

Hyundai said an electric oil pump assembly that overheats increases the risk of a vehicle fire for consumers.

In connection with what to do in addressing the defects, the company urged affected vehicle owners are advised to park outside and away from structures until the recall repair is complete.

The automobile manufacturer also noted that dealers would inspect and replace the electric oil pump controller — as necessary — free of charge.

Notification letters are expected to be mailed to owners September 25, 2023.

Vehicle owners may contact Hyundai Customer Service on (855) 371-9460.

Hyundai’s number for this recall is 246.
