SA352 - I'd never heard for it online either, and the dealership notified me several times about the wire harness but never about this one. When I showed up and mentioned I heard about a TSB for transmission issues, they stuck this on. I believe it's for 2.0s only but not sure.
SA352 - ECU Replacement
I want to order one of these rubber grommets under the ecu/driver side. Does anyone have a direct link or part number, I have no idea what its called.
The part numbers for the grommet and various wiring harnesses are in the TSB document attached to post #40 in this thread.
Is this the same Grommet used to pull the
jb4 obd wire into the driver side?
Not sure if this has made the forum, yet. I got a letter (find it attached below in german language) a few days ago about a potential issue with the cable tree at the bulkhead (not sure if this is the right translation) of the car. In it, Kia says no known problems, but potential friction damage. They'll check that and put a rubber jacket around it in case of issues.
What irritated me, is that my dealership informed me, they need to keep the car there for at least half a day, but the replacement car meanwhile isn't covered by warranty by Kia. I'm not sure I'm going to accept that.
sounds like the same issue we had in North America too , its a 15 minute fix\
For those who can't read German, here is the translation:
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Many thanks for the trust you have given Kia Motors AG in buying your Stinger.
Within the scope of the constant quality observations, the manufacturer has gained insights that cause us to inform you about a possible injury of the wiring harness to the spray wall of your vehicle.
So far, no incidents are known, which are attributed to this problem. The likelihood that your vehicle will suffer such a defect is very low, but we want to spare you and your passengers from any risk or inconvenience. That's why we decided to check the cable harness on all affected vehicles and to protect it against rubbing by means of a rubber sleeve or to replace it if necessary.
We ask you to make an appointment with an official Kia partner to have this preventive measure - of course, run free of charge for you.
Important: Please take this letter to the Kia partner.
If you are no longer in possession of the affected vehicle, please forward this letter to the new owner or return this letter with the address of the new owner.
We apologize to you for the intrigues that arise from this recall and ask for your understanding.
Kia Motors AG
So this is the same wire harness recall we got in the US.
Same in Oz
I knew about the US recall but I haven't received anything from KIA AU.
@Paihan Lee you don't happen to work at the Irvine towers would you? Two white stingers in my office parking, premium and a GT...
Download the TSB. It will tell you how to check it. Mine was fine.
I have to bring my car in for the wiring inspection and the guy just told my wife there is an ECU re-flash recall as well.
He said something about the "motor blowing up" she told me. I kid you not. They are just trying to scare me into bringing the car back quickly, i bet!
BTW, I checked the wire harness and it is fine.
No, I just live in Irvine and work in Huntington Beach. Maybe I'll see you around since I pass by there quite often. There's a large group of Stingers getting together this Sunday morning for a cruise to Thousand Oaks. Let me know if you're interested!
