Recall Alert : Volkswagen 2016-17 TT & A3

RECALL Subject : Side Marker Lights may not Illuminate/FMVSS 108

Report Receipt Date: SEP 06, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V642000
Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM , EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 79,895


Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

SUMMARY:

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2016 TT roadster, A3 cabriolet, A3 sedan and A3 e-tron, 2016-2017 TT coupe, 2017 A4 sedan and Q7 and 2015-2017 Q3 vehicles. The affected vehicles may have been programmed with new software that inadvertently makes the side marker lights inoperative in conjunction with the parking lights or the headlights. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
CONSEQUENCE:
If the side marker lights do not illuminate, the vehicle may be less visible at night, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Audi will notify owners, and dealers will upload revised software to correct the issue, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 97CB.
