Model Year 2016-2021 QL Sportage & Model Year 2017-2019 CK Stinger Recall
Kia is conducting a safety recall campaign for certain 2016 – 2021 QL Sportage and 2017 – 2019 CK Stinger vehicles equipped the Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (HECU) that could malfunction internally and cause an electrical short over time potentially resulting in an engine compartment fire. The HECU assembly controls the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control System (ESC) and Traction Control System (TCS) in your vehicle. There is a risk of an engine compartment fire, even when the vehicle is turned off, as the circuit is constantly powered. This could increase the risk of an accident, serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders, and/or damage to property. The short circuit does not affect the functioning of the brake system.
Model Year 2016 – 2021 QL Sportage and 2017 to 2019 CK Stinger.

An electrical short circuit inside the HECU increases the risk of an engine compartment key OFF fire.
Kia will be fitting a new fuse in the vehicle’s main junction box on all affected vehicles and updating HECU software on some QL Sportage vehicles to prevent power from being directed to the HECU when the vehicle’s ignition switch is turned OFF.

Upon receipt of the notification letter, owners are to contact their Kia dealer to arrange for the repair to be performed.
Until the parts are fitted, we recommend that the vehicle is parked outside and away from structures and other vehicles when it is not being driven.
