Agreed.But it is not the same issue. The recall was not for the pre-wiring. It was for the harness they sold that had a plug on one end for the pre-wiring and a plug on the other end for the trailer to connect to. Is there a new recall? I believe that additional cars were added to the original recall. And the 23 already has totally different pre-wiring than a 22. It is not the same. The 22 had 7 wires run into the plug behind the driver rear wheel. It was wired like most things have been for years. 7 wires. Separate wires for turn signals, brake lights, reverse lights, ground, 12V, electric brake power. Up under the dash was a plug with 4 wires for your controller to plug into. It has power,ground,brake notification, power to electric brakes. The power to brakes wire is the same one that is in the plug in the rear. That plug was behind a plastic cover behind rear driver wheel. Note that in addition to the Hyundai harness, which was only 4wire even though plug supported 7, Curt made a harness that plugged in also. It had a 7pin plug. The Curt harness never caught fire. Never had a problem. The problem was a small module in the Hyundai harness. It was not sealed properly. Moisture could get in. Short out since it always had 12v power. In the recall they said pull fuses because that was the easiest sure way to prevent the problem. No power to rear plug, no short possible. They could have also just said remove the harness, but that is more work.
The 23 has the same plug under the dash. I know, I plugged my brake controller into it. But in the rear the plug was moved inside the vehicle. In addition the plug does not have 7 wires. It has wires for the CAN bus. The new harness (was bought from Canada, factory Hyundai part) plugs into the new plug. In addition it has a much larger module. Probably due to the fact that it is now a computer communicating on the CAN bus to find out when turn signals and lights are on. Coming out of that module is a wire bundle that goes to a 7 pin plug. In addition to the new plug there are also plugs with fuses that carry the 12V and electric brake power. Different system all together. WIre bundle from front of car is different. Different plug carrying different signals. The pre-wiring is not the same. It has been changed for 23. That is why a hitch harness from a 22 cannot be used on a 23. But the pre-wiring is there. Just requires a new hitch harness. Myself and others have plugged the factory harness from CA up and it works fine.
As to why it is taking them so long I don't understand. Part has been available in CA and Austrailia for awhile. I cannot imagine they are building another part just for the US. Possibly having to certify that the new design fixes the problem that existed in the older models is an issue. The pre-wiring was redesigned.
I cannot find where the 2023 Palisade was added to the recall. Other models where. Which I assume is because they used the same hitch harness as the 22 Palisade.
And the new hitch harness that works with the 23 will not work with the 22, so it is not a fix for that recall.
Hyundai seems to have botched something. The "new" hitch is probably what they already sell for the Telluride. People have bought it and installed it. Maybe they are working on the replacment cover peice that has cutouts for the receiver and plug.
The lack of information from Hyundai is ridiculous. And the dealers don't seem to be helping matters.
