Audi is recalling 2,355 model year 2018-2019 RS5 Coupes. An incorrect positive battery terminal cover was installed.
In a rear crash, the incorrect cover can cause the 12-volt power supply to be compromised, preventing the vehicle doors from being opened from the outside, or the hazard warning lights from functioning, increasing risk of injury.
What to do
Audi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the positive terminal cover free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin February 7, 2021.
