NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V766
Manufacturer Volvo Trucks North America
Components EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected 2,194

 

Incorrect Plow Light Software//FMVSS 108

The driver may operate the vehicle with the snow plow headlights on but the marker and tail lamps off, reducing the vehicle’s visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain 2004-2019 Volvo VHD trucks equipped with snow plow lamp preparation kits. The snow plow headlights can be turned on without other exterior lights, and high beam indicator will not work when the snow plow high beams are on. 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.”

 

Remedy

Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will update the software related to the plow lights, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 21, 2018. Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586. Volvo’s number for this recall is RVXX1804.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
