2011 Hyundai ELANTRA Electrical System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID872859
 Internal NHTSA #10417337
 Model Year2011
 File date08/07/11
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemOn 6/27/2011 the car was hard to start then shut off as it was backed out of a parking space. The car would not start for twenty minutes. The dealer test drove the car after it was towed to them and the car almost stalled at highway speed. The dealer could not identify a problem (no error codes) and decided to change the fuel pump. On 7/8/2011 the car shut off while driving through a parking lot and would not restart. The car was towed back to the dealer and after several weeks the dealer thinks the wiring harness and computer are to blame. The dealer has not located a new computer or harness as of 8/01/2011. This elantra also has had five incidences with the transmission locking in either drive or park. We were told to just stick a screw driver in the front of the transmission console and hit the reset switch. The dealer has made one failed attempt to fix the problem by replacing a brake light switch. The dealer has since replaced the brake light switch for the second time, not sure if it fixed the problem. We only had the car back for a short time.
