On certain vehicles, there is a possibility of overheating issues of batteries in the Garmin nüvi® 760 when certain batteries manufactured within a limited date code range are used in certain Garmin nüvi® 760 models with a specific printed circuit board (PCB) design. The interaction of these factors can, in some circumstances, increase the possibility of overheating, which may lead to a fire. Correction: Dealers will direct customers who have an affected unit to the Garmin Web site, which explains how to verify if their units are involved and includes procedures to follow for product exchange.
On certain vehicles, there may be an intermittent fault in the driver's airbag clockspring wiring connector for the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). If this condition occurs, the SRS lamp will be permanently lit and the message "AIRBAG SYSTEM SERVICE REQUIRED" will be displayed in the drivers information module. If the condition occurs while driving, and if the driver ignores the warning and an accident occurs where the deployment of the driver's airbag is required, the airbag may not deploy as intended or may not deploy at all. Correction: Fealers will install a metal shim in the airbag clockspring wiring connector.
On certain vehicles, the engine cooling fan may stop working due to a software programming error in the Fan Control Module (FCM). Depending on conditions, the driver may experience reduced air conditioning performance and/or rapid increase in engine coolant temperature. This could result in a loss of cooling system function and engine break down. The driver may not have sufficient time to react to the warning light(s) or the text message in the instrument panel, increasing the risk of a crash causing personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will replace the Fan Control Module.
On certain vehicles, the fuel pressure sensor may at times transmit an incorrect signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM). If the signal is outside of the pre-programmed allowable limits, a diagnostic trouble code may be set and the check engine light will come on. An engine misfire may occur, reducing available engine torque and possibly causing the engine to stall. In certain traffic situations this could cause an unsafe situation and possibly a crash. Correction: Dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensor.
On certain vehicles, the electric cooling fan control unit's metal cover may not have received the specified corrosion protection during manufacturing process. Moisture ingress as a result of cover corrosion could lead to an electrical short that may initiate an engine compartment fire. Correction: Dealers will replace the cooling fan.
Certain vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of CMVSS 120. The certification label information was not printed in the prescribed manner or order. Correction: Updated labels and installation instructions will be mailed to owners.
On certain vehicles, a combination of throttle position sensor (TPS) irregularities, a dirty throttle housing, and/or inefficient software calibration, may cause a warning lamp to illuminate and the subsequent onset of "limp home" mode. Correction: Dealers will install an electronic throttle system software upgrade in both the electronic throttle module (ETM) and the engine control module (ECM).
Certain vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of CMVSS 110. The Tire and Loading Information Label contains incorrect tire inflation pressure value. If the vehicle is equipped with SST tires and the inflation pressure is set to 35 PSI (incorrect pressure listed on the label), the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may set a warning message "Low Tire Press. Check Tires". Correction: Owners will be provided with labels and installation instructions.
Certain Volvo 850, S40, V40, V50, V70, XC70 and XC90 equipped with integrated child booster cushions were incorrectly labelled during vehicle assembly. The label indicates that the booster cushion can be used for children weighing between 15 and 36 kg (33 and 80 lb). CMVSS 213 states that the minimum weight for use must be 18 kg (40 lb). Should an underweight child be placed in the booster cushion and the vehicle is involved in a crash, the child may have a greater risk of injury. Correction: Volvo Canada will send a letter to owners explaining this problem and will supply updated weight limit decal to be applied to each side window.
On certain vehicles, the Master Light Switch may cease to function. If this occurs, the headlights will not function and a loss of visibility will occur, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Correction: Dealers will replace the Master Light Switch.
On certain vehicles, the electric cooling fan may overheat, potentially causing heat damage and, in rare instances, a fire in the engine compartment. Correction: Dealers will replace the cooling fan with an improved version.
On certain vehicles, the relay controlling the left and right brake lights may fail. If this happens, the brake lights may be on constantly, even when the vehicle is parked; or may not light up at all when the brake pedal is depressed. In both cases, the high mount brake light and all other tail lights will work as intended. Correction: Dealer will replace the defective relay.
On certain vehicles, the front lower control arms may not have been manufactured within the agreed specifications and as a result the stud and nut that secure the control arm to the spindle may lose its initial axial tension. In the worst case, this condition could eventually lead to separation between the front control arm and the spindle possibly causing a loss of control and a crash. Correction: Dealer will install a new type of nut with increased assembly torque.
Certain vehicles do not comply with CMVSS 210.2. The symbol indicating the presence of a lower universal anchorage system, and a reproduction of this symbol were omitted from the owner's manual. Correction: The corrected owner's manual page will be mailed to owners.
On certain Volvo C70, C70 convertible, C70 coupe, S70 and V70, inadequate contact between the bulb and socket could cause the front turn signal not to function as designed. This would fail to warn an approaching driver that the vehicle is turning and could lead to a crash. Correction: Dealers will replace the left and right front turn signal bulb and socket.
On certain vehicles, the rear outboard seat belt anchorage bolts may have been incorrectly tightened. Correction: Vehicles will be inspected and, if necessary, anchorage bolts will be tightened to the specified torque. .
On certain Volvo V70 wagon, the bolted joint that is used for attaching the bracket that is part of the installation hardware for the ISOFIX-type child restraint, may have been incorrectly tightened. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, tighten the bolts to the specified torque.
Certain vehicles may be equipped with a defective tailgate locking mechanism which, in combination with cold temperatures, may cause the tailgate to not lock properly. Should the tailgate open when the vehicle is in motion, or as the result of a vehicle crash, personal injury could occur to unrestrained passengers. Correction: Tailgate locking mechanism will be replaced.
