Thank's for the replies (deadrx7conv and LLigetfa). It's good to know that it can't be disabled. And as far as them paying for a month of the car rental, I do understand your thought's on that issue. I'm really surprised it took them that long to replace the wiring. And when they diagnosed it they said the engine would have to be replaced. Before they diagnosed it they said it would either be the wiring or the engine. I could understand if they said it was the wiring after they diagnosed it, but when they said it was the engine, just makes my suspicious mind go into hyper drive.

The called me and told me that they would be replacing the motor with a long block (New engine). I had the rental car for over a month then they called me and said I could pick up my car and return the rental. When I arrived at the dealer they told me that they only replaced the wiring bundle.

The car seems as though it's running okay but it sure makes me wonder if they just disabled the knock sensor hoping the car would hold up for the remaining 13,000 miles left on the 120,000 mile warranty.


Any thoughts?
keep us posted! guess the wiring harness was on backorder and that's why you waited a month. Would have been nice if they told you what was going on. They just keep blowing.

So done with Hyundai products.
