The Abs System Is Activating Randomly, Increasing The Length Of A Stop. It Will Activate At 0mph (stopped) Or Any Speed; The Indication Is The Pump Running And A Vibration In The Brake Pedal. I Determined That The Problem Is That Both Front Abs Reluctor (toothed Wheels) Rings Are Broken. The System (abs, Tracs) Fails Completely As Indicated By The Dash Monitor, At A Sustained 50mph Or Higher. Searching On The Internet, I Found That This Is A Common Problem With Some Vehicles. However, Since It Is Due To Corrosion, It Can Take An Long Time To Appear. Contacting hyundai, They Indicated That The Vehicle Was Out Of Warranty And Therefore Not Covered. I Cannot Even Find Out How To Replace The Rings In The Factory Shop Manual, Though They Appear To Be Heat Shrunk On. If Needs Be, I Will Repair The Existing Rings With A Spot Welder Or New Rings But Do Think That This Was A Factory Default And Should Be Covered By hyundai. Thank You *tr

Shortly After Having A Complete Brake Overhaul (rotors, Calipers, Pads, Shoes, Etc) Started Experiencing The Abs/trac Control Lights Randomly Coming On And Off. Had To Mechanic And Found No Fault Issues. Lights Continued To Randomly Come On And Off, At Different Speeds And Braking. Shortly Thereafter, Started Hearing The Abs Motor Run With And Without The Lights Coming On. Tapping The Brake Pedal Stopped The Abs Motor/pump From Running And Would Eliminate What Appeared To Be Eliminated The Pump Resetting Itself. Approximately 3 Months Ago, The Issue Affected Braking Distances, In Hat You May Be Stopping At A Light Or Stop Sign And The Abs Motor Would Activate, Even On Dry Pavement And Significantly Increase Stopping Distance. This Has Almost Caused An Accident On Multiple Occasions, Not Only With Other Vehicles But When Pulling The Car Into My, Or A Shops’ Garage. Having Been Researching I Have Found Numerous Complaints Of 2002 santa Fe‘s Having The Same Issues, And Have Found That hyundai Has Issued service Bulletins That Are Abs Associated, But There Has Been No Action To Recall Or Fix The Issues. I Do Not Understand Why There Hasn’t Been A Recall, As There Have Been Recalls For What Appears To Be The Same Issue On Later Year Vehicles, So It Would Appear That This Is A Systemic Problem With The santa Fe Model Abs Braking Systems.

In Reference To Another Complaint, 10670197: The Abs Tone Rings, The Toothed Wheels On The End Of The Axle, Rust And Crack. This Is What Causes The Intermittent Pump Activation And Unsafe Braking Condition. I Too Have Noticed That This Situation Has Caused Recalls On Newer Vehicles But Not The 2002. This May Be Due To The Fact That The Abs Was Introduced Late In 2002 And May Be 2003 Equipment.

    I have been experiencing the exact same issues as described above with the ABS system. It happens randomly. I took this in for repair in December 2015. On the way home from the Hyundai shop, it happened again. I had already paid over $700.00 for a reportedly new sensor that was replaced to correct this problem.
    I called the repair shop, they said to bring it back. My 2002 Santa Fe has continued to repeat this issues since that time, and it is now approaching 20018. My car has over 100,000 miles. This car should have been recalled years ago.
    My car feels as if it may not stop when this episode occurs. No one seems to want to acknowledge this issue or take responsibility for this problem. The Hyundai repair shops act as if they have never heard of this issue before, and I know that they have….

    ABS & TCS light goes on intermittently. Brakes stutter, sqeak go to floor & go out. No accident yet. Been happening since2010. Mechanics say may be magnets & rust dust? Have not repaired.
