A total of 19,743 Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 electric cars are being recalled due to transition issues.

Separate recall notices from Hyundai and Kia both argue that a “software error in the control lever control unit” in the affected cars could turn off parking, allowing vehicles to roll. This may be due to voltage fluctuations when the vehicle is switched off and parked, which may interrupt the signal from the switch switch control unit to the parking mechanism.

The recalls cover 10,729 Hyundai cars and 9,014 Kia ​​cars. The Ioniq 5 and EV6 share the E-GMP platform, and there is also significant component-software sharing between the two models. Hyundai has also informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that the 2023 Genesis GV60 and G80 EV use the same parking mechanism, but these EVs have not yet gone on sale in the United States.

Owners will be informed when to drive their cars to dealerships to upgrade the conversion control unit software for free. Until now, owners are advised to park their cars on a level surface if possible.

Although this is a software problem, she stresses that Kia and Hyundai still cannot deploy over-the-air fixes or upgrades to traffic or safety systems, even if the E-GMP platform capable of it.

Over the years, Tesla has managed to solve problems that would otherwise require physical service visits deploy firmware fix over the air. Although sometimes Tesla needs to eliminate the recall through visits to the service. For example, Fr. Model 3 and Model Y recall issued last year required service centers to physically inspect brake caliper bolts that could loosen.
