Audi is recalling 144,092 model year 2018 S5 Cabriolets, S5 Sportbacks, S5 Coupes, S4 Sedans, A5 Cabriolets, A5 Sportbacsk & A5 Coupes, and model year 2017-2018 A4 Sedans & A4 Allroads.

Oxidation on the Passenger Occupant Detection System (PODS) connecting cable may cause the software to misdiagnose a malfunction and disable the passenger airbag.

A disabled passenger airbag increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

What to do

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will update the airbag control unit software free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin September 15, 2019.

Owners may contact customer service at (800) 893-5298. Audi's number for this recall is 74D9.
