Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Car was purchased on 9/10/2016 used. It was driven for three days. When putting the car in park this warning msg came up "hybrid system warning safely stop and do not drive!". this happened a few times the car was taken to dealership on 9/19. They could not duplicate so it was returned. I was informed if it happened again to bring it in. The warning came on again so it was taken to dealership on 10/09. They could not duplicate it again so they had it for a week tested it every way possible including driving it for a week. They called a Hyundai representative and they informed them of what to watch and or look for and to no avail nothing. It was given back to me a week later and I was informed if it happens again do not turn it off bring it straight there to obtain a code. This only happens when putting it into park, and a couple of times it would not let me start the car I had to wait five min or so, push the lock/unlock on the fob, another time that did not work I had to get out of car lock it get in car lock it and then lock/unlock it from with in and it started. Not sure if all that correlated with it but it worked.

As I started to slow down from 75mph the car started to beep and the ready light was flashing. Many indicator lights came on to include the battery indicator light, and the amber box with a wrench in it. It said "check hybrid charging system" and "safely pull over" as the car slowed down the car would no longer go forward, the lights dimmed and would no longer accelerate.
