Volvo S60 Recalls
Volvo is recalling all models equipped with Garmin 760 Portable Global Positioning System units because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Volvo advises owners to stop using the Garmin device immediately and consult the Garmin website to determine if they have a defective unit. The unit's battery will be replaced and a spacer inserted to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.
When exposed to certain environmental conditions (hot climate and temperature cycling) over time and in combination with varying fuel quality, the fuel pump can develop cracks in the fuel pump flange. If cracks develop, a fuel smell and/or leak may be noted. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump as necessary to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R220.
The fuel pressure sensor may at times transmit an incorrect signal to the engine control module. If the signal is outside of the pre-programmed allowable limits, the Check Engine Light can illuminate and a fault code will be stored. An engine misfire and/or engine stalling may occur. In certain traffic situations, this could cause an unsafe situation and possibly a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensor to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R181.
The tire pressure and loading information label may be incorrect. This could lead to improper vehicle loading or tire pressures that could result in a tire failure. Dealers will mail the correct label to vehicle owners. This recall is expected to begin on December 18, 2006. The Volvo recall number is 161.
