Hi all. My 19 Kona has just under 8300 Miles. Today I started hearing a Whiny sound. Coming from the steering column. Have a recording on my phone. Having trouble uploading it. Its a MP4 file.

You need a new "clock spring". Mine has a small noise, they usauly do. But if they get bad to the point of you notice it when driving without the radio, it maybe time for a new one.

I heard it backing out of a parking spot. I don't remember the last time I had one of those off. Probably 20 years ago??

I'm taking to my dealer on June 4. Before I noticed the noise, Occasionally I would get a warning about keeping my hands on the wheel. When my hand was on the wheel. It would flash real quick. Then go away.

I am taking to the dealership this morning. Contacted Hyundai with a complaint. They keep calling me every couple of days. When I am at work and can't answer the call.

My one does the similar sound too but not that loud .. I am driving Kona 2019 ,I already got 32k ineh ... your one is kind of loud , we’ll probably you videoed it too close that is why sounds clear .. but it’s been like 3-4 month I noticed that thing and I am driving quit good .. idk what to do next I will show that to the dealer on my next service

I did that Intentionally. To make sure it was Loud and Clear. I played it to the service writer today. She just says, That doesn't sound good. And has me coming back next Wed due to the power outage.

Here's what happened. Go to dealership. Mechanic cant hear noise. Now a 2nd Mechanic goes for a ride. Again can't hear the noise. Asked me what the complaint was? Played the video. Audio through the car speakers. BT connection. Take back into shop. 1/2 hour later, Ordered a Steering Column. Now I have to go back again. And most likely need to leave it.

Had yours replaced Twice? I had 8300 Miles when I noticed it. Just filed a complaint with NHTSA. They either have a bad batch, Bad Design. 40k is what around 30k Miles? This could turn into a Serious Safety Issue.
