My 2021 Elantra SEL has fewer than 3k miles on it. Today I started it and multiple systems started sequentially alarming. Collision avoidance, lane departure, etc. Also, the steering was no longer assisted and I had to crank hard with both hands to steer. Tried backing out, then parked it as it was clearly unsafe to drive. Diagnostics shows a bunch of SCC and LKAS sub system errors on the app but I can't find the codes on line that are showing. For example, C161187 DTC System Chassis, DTC Subsystem LKAS. Multiple restarts failed to clear the issue and the car is currently not drivable.

No, it hasn't happened again. I did take it in for a software update but they didn't think that fixed anything related. Their only guess was that my EZ Pass was too high up on the windshield and maybe caused issues with the forward camera. I'm not convinced.

I have a 2021 Elantra and mine started throwing up the same alerts along with the (AEB) warning light, (EPS) Electric steering warning light and the Master warning light. I had 45,223 miles on it when it started doing this. All I did was drive to the store I was in the store for about 10 min's came back out and all those light's were on and it was telling me to check the same systems yours did. I had an appointment at the dealership that day for an oil change and I called them and told them what the car was doing and they told me to bring it in and they would put the scanner on it and check for codes. (oh by the way my steering was very very stiff as well like an old car before power steering was invented!) I went out and started my car to take it to the dealership and wouldn't you know it was acting NORMAL!! and when they checked it out at the dealership they said that it did not have any stored codes and they could not find anything wrong with it. They did do a software update and the light's have not come back on yet ( KNOCK ON WOOD!!) But today when I went out and started it at work on my lunch break it said "Check lane departure system". Did you ever find out what was causing your issues? Please let me know if you would
