If you are servicing a vehicle equipped with a “SHIFTRONIC” automatic transaxle that has the following symptoms, refer to the following repair procedure.
• Will not shift in “D” position, but shifts correctly in Sports Mode; and
• Will not upshift or downshift in Sports Mode.
Affected Models: 2001 Santa Fe and XG, 2002 Sonata, 2003 Tiburon, 2005 Tucson and 2006 Azera.
Attach a Hi-Scan Pro or GDS and select:
• Hyundai Vehicle Diagnosis; and
• “Automatic Transaxle,” “Current Data.”
1. Sports Mode Select Switch Test: With the ignition key “ON” and engine off, select “Sports Mode Select Switch.”
Check the operation of the select switch when the shift lever is moved from “D” to “Sports Mode” and back.
2. Sports Mode Upshift & Downshift Switch Test:
• “Sports Mode Up Switch,” F1 “FIX.”
• “Sports Mode Down Switch,” F1 “FIX.”
• F2, “SCRN” two times (this will isolate top two data to provide a quick refresh rate).
Shift the Sports Mode lever to the upshift and downshift positions and check the operation of the switches.
Switch Box Replacement:
If the switches do not operate as indicated above, proceed as follows. See Fig. 1.
