Water may enter the cable harness

Volvo Car USA is recalling 5,351 model year 2021-2022 XC40 BEVs.

Water may enter the cable harness, corroding the accelerator pedal sensor (APS) circuit.

A corroded APS circuit may send corrupted signals, causing unintended acceleration, a lack of acceleration, or a loss of drive power that increases the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect for corrosion, install a cable splice to prevent water intrusion, and -- as necessary -- replace the connector terminal and APS free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on June 20, 2022.

Owners may contact Volvo at (800) 458-1552. Volvo's number for this recall is R10170.
