Hi there. It is very rare for an ECU to fail completely, unless something dramatic happens to cause this to occur; such as attaching battery cables backwards or flood damage / excessive exposure to water. Unfortunately, the best way to resolve this issue is to have a local dealership inspect your Hyundai. Replacing ECU’s is not something that should be done by an authorized dealer or service repair center. It’s not a service our professional mobile mechanics offer.
