Hey guys,
I have a 2022 Tucson SEL Premium. Two months after purchasing my check engine light came on in combination with my steering wheel speaker becoming distorted as it called out navigation. Dealership was very confused that the check engine light was throwing a code for low tire pressure. They suspect it was the gas cap, but had no clue about the speaker distortion happening. I've noticed the steering wheel speaker distortion when navigation goes beyond 30 minutes or so. Has anyone else experienced this?

This is my first brand new car and I am very disappointed to have troubles like this so soon. I'm worried that diagnosing the speaker issue is going to take forever or cause cosmetic damage.

Steering wheel speaker giving navigation directions?
Since you don't have built in Navigation check the Android Auto or Apple Car Play from your phone for distortion you are hearing. Do you hear distortion playing the radio?
Have you received the check engine light more than once? Did it reset itself? If the code was low tire pressure that should mean a problem with a sensor for low tire pressure, not actual low tire pressure.

I'm using Apple Car Play and keeping my phone in the wireless charger dock/pad. The radio and Pandora App through Apple Car Play through the main speakers sound great. It's the navigation through Maps using Apple Car Play that comes through the steering wheel speaker that sounds distorted - BUT not every time.

The dealership reset the check engine light and it hasn't come on again - however the random steering wheel speaker issue still happens. I will see if I can attach a video/sound clip of the distortion shortly.

There's no steering wheel speaker in any 2022 Tucson, there is a center channel if you have the Bose stereo. Center channel is up on the center of the dash.

I think you may be hearing your phone doing the audio directions from time to time, no idea. Does your phone sound distorted when you play audio on its speaker?

Say what?! Wow, it really sounds like it's coming from the steering wheel. I'm embarrassed that the dealership didn't correct me. I don't think it's my phone, it's definitely coming from a car speaker but it seems closer than the center console speaker. I'll test it on my way home today. It may be coming from the small speaker on the driver door close to the side mirror. I just know when the issue happens, the male navigation voice sounds like C-3PO using an old 50's radio. Thank you for clarifying that there isn't a steering wheel speaker (d'oh) and I will investigate further!
