Two months after I was recalled because of a problem with the vehicle brake, there was a report that the brakes were not working, which almost lead to an accident.
This time, it is not a problem with the brakes, it is because the control unit is broken and braking is not possible.
This is Yoo Su-hwan.
Last week, Ho-
Hyun, who lives in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, suffered a dizzying job on his way to work.
The brakes suddenly stopped working in the middle of the road while driving.
[Hyunho-Seok / Reporter: As the distance from the car in front of you was getting closer, the smart sensor was'beep' and asked to check the battery.
I took the brakes.
I don't have any brakes.
I was embarrassed and said,'Oh, you're dead now!'
Fortunately, the speed was around 50-60 km/h.
[Hyunho-Seok / Reporter: It's a mess because the car in front went out all the time. I turned off the engine and turned it on again, so I don't eat anything.
There is no gear.
I can't accelerate, turn the engine off, turn it on, and repeat it about 10 times.] The
road where the accident occurred has a slight slope as you can see.
The vehicle running on the 1st lane slowed down, and it reached the 4th lane and managed to stop.
As a result of the confirmation of Hyundai Motor Company's Suwon office, it was revealed that a control device called ECU, that is, a device that acts like a human brain, was broken.
[Hyundai Motor Suwon Office: I have an ECU.
It's a (so-called) computer.
There was something wrong with the controlling module, so a problem occurred and the entire system was locked.]
Hyun-san had already received a brake recall in December of last year, but he is in anguish saying that the brakes have been jammed again due to a problem with the control device.
[Hyunho-seok/Reporter: Two months ago, I recalled that it was a brake adjusting device.
Also, because the brakes were not available, I was so surprised that my heart beats and my legs were fluffy...
Experts point out that a detailed investigation is necessary, not just a single failure case.
[Park Byeong-il/Master of automobile: It is important not to just go over this from the company, but to collect it from the manufacturer and analyze it again and analyze the cause if any problem occurs...
