Volvo recalls new sedans and crossovers for software issue

2014 Volvo XC60 T6

Volvo is recalling several of their sedans and crossovers that are equipped with keyless ignition, for a software issue. In all, 7,767 S60 and S80 sedans, as well as the 2014 XC60 and XC70 crossovers are affected. Volvo did not state how many of the models specifically are going to be recalled.

The issue concerns the central electronic module (CEM) in the sedans and crossovers. Since it has been determined that it’s not operating properly, such electronic features as the windshield wipers may operate continuously while the vehicle is on, regardless if they were activated or not. Other features such as the turn signals and the headlights may not function properly as well, per reports from owners and users. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the software defect.

The latest Volvo recall will have affected owners’ vehicles back at the dealership for inspection and software upgrades, at no charge. For more information, or to schedule a service appointment, owners can contact their local Volvo dealer.
