Resetting Hyundai Shift Adapts, and Procedures for Relearning

Like most late-model vehicles, Hyundai vehicles need the shift adapts cleared and then relearned to get a properly working transmission after overhaul or valve-body replacement. Some Hyundai vehicles can have the shift adapts cleared by disconnecting the battery, connecting the positive and negative battery cables and turning on the headlights for 10 minutes; others need a scan tool to clear the shift adapts.
