From the above link:

"The Korean automaker is recalling about 180,000 Tucson SUVs in the U.S. from 2019 through 2021 to fix the problem. The company says corrosion can cause a short circuit in defective anti-lock brake circuit boards that can cause a fire even if engines are off."

Right. I saw the article. What I was pointing out is even though I have a 2020 Tucson, recall search says there are none.

Seems like the Hyundai Recall search is not caught up. Saw that it said updated as of 09/10/2020

From a pdf over the nhtsa site, https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/RCLRPT-20V543-8816.PDF

2020-2020 Hyundai Tucson
LIGHT VEHICLES
SUV
GAS
Certain Model Year 2020 Hyundai Tucson vehicles produced from 12/01/2019 to
03/31/2020 by Hyundai Motor Company (“HMC”) in South Korea for sale in the U.S.
market may contain a defective circuit board in the ABS brake hydraulic electronic
control unit (HECU).

2019-2019 Hyundai Tucson
LIGHT VEHICLES
SUV
GAS
Certain Model Year 2019 Hyundai Tucson vehicles produced from September 1, 2018
to 07/31/2019 by Hyundai Motor Company (“HMC”) in South Korea for sale in the U.
S. market may contain a defective circuit board in the ABS brake hydraulic electronic
control unit (HECU).

2021-2021 Hyundai Tucson
LIGHT VEHICLES
SUV
GAS
Certain Model Year 2021 Hyundai Tucson vehicles produced on 06/23/2020 by
Hyundai Motor Company (“HMC”) in South Korea for sale in the U.S. market may
contain a defective circuit board in the ABS brake hydraulic electronic control unit
(HECU).


The subject vehicles are equipped with Anti-lock Brake System (“ABS”)
modules that could corrode internally and cause an electrical short over time,
resulting in an engine compartment fire.

An electrical short in the ABS module could increase the risk of an engine
compartment fire.
Flux residue from the soldering process at the supplier could accumulate on
the ABS module’s main controller board (PCB). With exposure to heat and
humidity, the residue could result in a corrosive path and an electrical
resistance short.
1. Smoke from the engine compartment.
2. Burning/melting odor.
3. Illumination of the MIL and/or ABS light.

Hopefully, we will get an official letter from Hyundai calling us in to a local dealer for the fix.

Is this the website you're using to lookup the recall by VIN? Mine still all clear

Yes. That’s the right one. FYI, I had to press the “Search” button after entering VIN. I’m using my IPad keyboard which has “go” software key. Clicking that key didn’t do anything.

This is the nhtsa pdf, https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/RCLRPT-20V543-8816.PDF. Unlike earlier ABS HECU recalls, Hyundai now indicates they figured out the root cause:

Flux residue from the soldering process at the supplier could accumulate on
the ABS module’s main controller board (PCB). With exposure to heat and
humidity, the residue could result in a corrosive path and an electrical
resistance short.
This is quite different from what they said Feb in the earlier Elantra recall report, https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/RCLRPT-20V061-6002.PDF:

A specific causality allowing moisture to enter the ABS module electrical circuit
has not yet been identified
and they plan to put a new ABS module:

Hyundai plans to notify owners to
instruct them to return their vehicles to a Hyundai dealership for
replacement of the ABS module when available. The remedy procedure
will be performed at no charge.
for Feb recall, they just added a relay in a fuse box that turns off ABS when car is off.

one other thing in the two reports is that Tucson uses ABS made by Mando while Elantra recall talks about Hyundai Mobis component. So maybe Elantra case differs.
