On certain vehicles, a defect may cause the occupant classification system electronic control unit to shut down unexpectedly, illuminating the supplemental restraint system (SRS) warning lamp, illuminating the passenger airbag disable indicator (Evoque model vehicles only) as well as disabling the airbags and other supplemental restraint systems. This could increase the risk of injury in a crash that warrants airbag deployment and/or other supplemental restraint system function. Correction: Dealers will update vehicle software.
On certain vehicles, a manufacturing problem with the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) driver's airbag clockspring may inadvertently disable the driver's airbag. If this condition occurs during a drive cycle, and the vehicle is involved in a collision where deployment of the driver's airbag is required, the driver's airbag may not deploy as intended or may not deploy at all, increasing the risk of occupant injury. Correction: Dealers will install a spacer onto the SRS clockspring harness connector.
Certain vehicles equipped with a sunroof may experience failure of either the left or right-hand side sunroof guide rails when the sunroof is operated. This could cause the sunroof to bind, twist, or detach from the operating mechanism. If the sunroof is subsequently cycled and a vertical force applied (for example, customer manually aiding roof to close) the glass panel can become fully detached from the vehicle, which could impact nearby persons or objects, resulting in personal injury and/or vehicle and property damage. Correction: Dealers will install retention inserts to both side of the glass panel guide rails.
