after what I've been able to read, there is NO Global reset, but one must drive around the block...then it will find it's "sea- legs"...of course the time and the radio stations must be re- established...but although have had distrust for Hyundai in the past...perhaps they have their thinking caps on finally~


We cannot get keys to come out of ignition The brake lights and A/C won't turn off. We had to disconnect battery.


put the battery back in...get 'er running and drive around the block~ it will "teach itself" how to make you mad~
