The contact owns a 2004 Hyundai Sonata. The vehicle had water damaged due to a defective air conditioning hose sealant that allowed water to penetrate which caused mildew to form on the interior of the vehicle. The dealer stated that the instrumental panel will need to be removed in order to replace the damaged wiring and sealant. The contact stated that a year ago water penetrated the interior of the vehicle due to the sealant around the brake lights. The VIN information wasn't available. The manufacturer will be contacted. The failure mileage was 39,000 and the current mileage was 69,000.
