Fix for Hyundai Accent P0707, P0708, P1529

Hyundai has determined that some 2000-02 Hyundai Accent vehicles produced through April 30, 2002 have developed ATM diode pin corrosion in the wiring harness located behind the dash panel. This is caused by water from the cowling top panel entering through an improperly sealed control wiring harness grommet.

1) Open the hood and remove the two 10mm mounting nuts that secure the harness grommet to the dash panel.

Pull out the grommet and locate the ATM diode which is wrapped with yellow tape. Remove the yellow tape

2) Insert a screwdriver into the diode holder to pry the diode from the holder.
