Electrical Malfunction Prompts Volkswagen Recall

Posted on March 31st, 2011 No Comments

Volkswagen on Monday announced a recall of more than 71,000 Jetta sedans due to an electrical malfunction.

According to a Volkswagen of America Inc. press release, the wiring of anti-theft systems and horns in certain 2011 Jetta models may be defective. The recall affects Jettas built between March 2010 and March 2011.

The company says the problem stems from a fuse that protects the Jetta’s anti-theft alarm and the convertor box that operates the headlights and windshield wipers. It is possible that a short circuit in the horn can cause the headlights and wipers to malfunction or stop working, increasing the risk of a car accident. The automaker said it has not received any reports or injuries or accidents caused by the defect.

Under the recall, Volkswagen dealer service technicians will rewire the affected vehicles so the horn and convertor box do not share the same fuse. The company will notify owners of the defective vehicles by first class mail about corrective measures and the anticipated repair timeline.
