I took my car yesterday afternoon and after 2 hours the service manager said that they were going to get me a rental and keep the car until Mon. because they did find a failure code and he didn't want to rush it (it was 5 pm and all the service tech's were gone), so they would look at it further on Monday. I am grateful that they FINALLY found something and I hope they will take their time to fix it correctly and I'll soon be back in my car and feel safe driving it.

How did it turn out? My 2007 sonata did the same thing. While driving the car 60miles per hr down a strait interstat , no rain soomth payment. theESC light comes on and the ABS engages.. Which pull the car to the right. I almost killed my family by hitting a truck. I have taken it to the dealer 4 times to get the problem fixed and it keeps doing this. I am loosing my cool very quickly ..
Did they fix yours?

Yes, I did get my car fixed. I was blessed the last time I took it in that one of Hyundai's Tech's was going to be in the area the next day and he inspected my car. I will tell you what was on the invoice and then take it to your dealer and tell them you want a Hyundai technician to come and check your car immediately. It's very scary and I know how you feel.
"Cause: Found loose pin 37 on connector no EM02. Pink/Black into Pink wire YAW Sensor to ESC Module. Part # 914000A030
Bob Stepanovich Tech Training Instructor assisted. Dealer contacted Hyundai Technical Training Instructor for assistance in diagnosis repair wiring Connector Push Pin was not engaged into the lock all the way."
Since I had this repair on 8/30/07 I have not had any more problems with the ESC & ABS.
Please let me know how it turns out for you.

This car seems to be fixed. KNOCK ON WOOD. The dealership has the area Hyundia tech and he seems to find the problem.
In short the connections into one of the sensors was pinched and causeing the ESC to engage the ABS system.
At any rate it took them 5 times to get it right. So far so good. Now I can enjoy my car and drive it with my family safely.
Once again thank you for your response to my post.

You're welcome. As I said, since that repair (and it took 4 trips to the shop for me) I have not had that happen anymore. Enjoy your car!

I am living this nightmare with the brakes coming on at all speeds. Its very dangerous and the dealer can't figure it out. I gave him this post, "they fixed it" and it just happened again now they say they don't know what to do... they act like they have never hear of this before. My Sonata is a 2007 with 16000 miles and it has been going on from the beginning but is getting worse. It happened to one of the techs when they were test driving the car but...? You stated Bob Stepanovich help out with the problem any idea how I can get in touch with him? Which dealership did you use? I'm in florida and feel like I need to help the dealership make contact with someone who knows what they are doing. Thanks for any help.

My car was repaired at Elyria Hyundai in Elyria, OH. Bob was an engineer tech with Hyundai and not the local dealership, so I am not sure where you can locate him at. I have been blessed that after the repair it has not happened anymore. I hope that you are able to find out the problem and have it fully repaired.

I got my repaird at Marhoffer Hyundai in Green Ohio, or Akron Ohio. It did take them many attempts to fix the problem. It all had to do with the ABS and Stabilty control. Very, very dangerous. They did fix the problem, i believe it was somthing with the wiring somthing was to tight and cripped the wires.

I bought 2012 sonata and felt it pulling to the right took it to the dealer they stated the specs for aligning the 2012 were not in , I had to come back. Came back said it was all set, It seemed to be fixed a week later car pulled even worse. Back to the dealer said it must be the road, I asked the mechanic to take a ride said there was a problem and took it back in, came back and said again it must be the road the specs are right. Asked the service manager to take a ride realized there was a problem, said he would have to consult the manufacturer and put me in a rental, will keep you updated
