Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling about 150,000 Hyundai Elantra sedans because of potential electrical problems that could prevent air bags from deploying.
Hyundai said the recall involves Elantras from the 2001 model year.
If a liquid is spilled near the cupholder, it could drip into the air bag control module electrical connector and contaminate the module. That could prevent the front and side air bags from deploying in a crash.
The Korean automaker also is recalling about 75,000 Elantras from the 2001 and 2002 model years because of issues with an air bag wiring harness that could prevent the side air bags from deploying.
Hyundai spokesman Miles Johnson said owners who see an air bag warning light go on should take their car to a dealership for inspection.
