Hyundai Australia says 3049 Ioniq 5 & Ioniq 6 vehicles eligible for free ICCU software update & possibly ICCU hardware replacement

Earlier this week I asked Hyundai Australia’s media spokesperson if the ICCU issues reported by some American Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 electric car buyers are also occurring in Australia.

Hyundai Ioniq 5

According to unconfirmed speculation on the Business Korea website which I have quoted from below:

“Hyundai Motor Group will launch a large-scale electric vehicle recall … Hyundai and Kia will replace faulty integrated charging control units (ICCUs) … In both Korean and overseas markets, the number of recalled vehicles is expected to hit 500,000”

“The recall has been confirmed for electric vehicle models equipped with ICCUs including the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and the Genesis GV60 … Kia is also planning to recall vehicles using the same components. Kia’s EV6 and other models use ICCUs from the same manufacturer as the IONIQ 5”

Quote source:

I also asked Kia Australia for a comment on this issue and they advised that “an enquiry with Kia HQ has been submitted”.

At time of publishing this article I hadn’t received further information from Kia Australia. This post will update with any extra news.

The Genesis Australia team told me they are not aware of any Genesis models that are affected by ICCU issues.

The Hyundai Australia media spokesperson I sent questions to advised me that:

“Our Technical Team have confirmed in September 2023, we released a service campaign (not a recall) affecting 3049 Ioniq 5 & Ioniq 6 vehicles”.

“Campaign consists of a software update, and in some cases replacement of the ICCU”.

Australian Readers can identify if their Ioniq 5 or 6 is covered by this service campaign on the Hyundai Australia website using their VIN.

This Hyundai webpage should shows if your car is covered by this service campaign as well as any other recalls or service campaigns.

A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a code unique to individual vehicles, which is used to identify the vehicle’s manufacturer, general characteristics (such as the model and body), and specific identifying features (such as model year, engine and transmission).
