2023 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #2

May 252024

Sonata N Line 2.5t

  • Manual transmission
  • 9,479 miles


The fourth time CEL & limp mode was result of DTC P0653. My Hyundai account via Blue Link confirmed the third time as P0653 as well. The fourth time now averaging 2370mi to a limp mode that requires pulling over, turning the engine off and restarting. This time two lane rural blacktop 40-45mph.

On a positive note the Blue Link system records the time, date, mileage & code then stores it on my account.

problem #1

May 132024

Sonata N Line 2.5t

  • Manual transmission
  • 7,552 miles

I edited my first complaint to include the 2nd CEL/Limp Mode P0653.

This time CEL/Limp Mode, but no code shown on my reader. Sport + mode slowing down from around 40 or so mph no brake just wet clutch bringing my speed down.

I went to O'reilly and had them use their scanner. More of the same. They showed no DTC. Oddly enough the CEL went out the same day. Usually it takes a day or two.

This was after a bluelink notice that my 7500mi maintenance needed to be scheduled. This is the third time in 7552 miles that I've experienced CEL combined w/Limp Mode. The only saving grace is that each time I'm driving 40 mph or under.

Email from Hyundai blue link - 'A possible condition with your Engine Control System has been detected'.

A condition that shows no DTC? I'm averaging right at 2500 miles tp a CEL/Limp Mode combo. I took it to the dealer the first time. They offered nothing save clearing the code. On my account they do not acknowledge that I came in due to CEL/Limp Mode & DTC [P06543/P065312] They only own up to my visit being, 'maintenance'. How vague and how convenient.

I'm going to have to see something more from my ride before I take it in for service. It wasn't 'fixed' the first time as it happened again and now 3rd time w/o stored code seems as if I've saved two hours and two trips to the dealer. Stay tuned!
