Hyundai and Kia recall nearly 3.4 million vehicles, asking owners to park outdoors due to engine compartment fire risk.
Multiple models including including Hyundai’s Santa Fe SUV and Kia’s Sorrento SUV from 2010 to 2015 are among those recalled.
According to U.S. safety regulator documents, the anti-lock brake control module could leak fluid, causing an electrical short.
This could cause a fire if the vehicle is being driven or parked.
Owners are being urged to park their vehicles outdoors and away from structures to avoid damage.
Notifications to owners will go out only in November.
However, the anti-brake fuse will be fixed by the dealers at no cost to the owners.
