Recall 15V342000

Front Side Impact Air Bags Do Not Deploy

Recall Details

The wiring harness for the side impact protection system (SIPS) may have been improperly routed, resulting in damage to the wiring. This could prevent the seat mounted side impact air bags from deploying in an accident. Dealers will inspect the routing of the SIPS wiring and will correct it, installing a protective sleeve as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front side impact air bags mounted inside the front seats may not deploy as needed in an accident. This could result in increased risk of occupant injury.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Volvo must be performed by a Volvo dealership. Volvo notified known owners of affected vehicles in July, 2015. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Volvo dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
