From: Gerard Hones, Regulatory Specialist Government Reporting
Subject: Safety Recall RVXX1903,    I-Shift Transmission ECU Fuse

 

Description of Defect:

On certain vehicles, the fuse used in a transmission circuit has a rating that is lower than what is required.  As a result, the fuse can open under normal operating conditions and cause the transmission to not shift.  This does not affect the brake system; however, under certain conditions this may contribute to a vehicle crash.

 

Models/ Model Years Affected: 

Volvo: Certain 2018-2020 VAH, VHD, VNL and VNM models manufactured from June 13, 2017 through March 28, 2019

 

Vehicle Quantities:

Volvo: Approximately 530 vehicles (235 in the U.S., 265 in Canada and 30 in Mexico).

 

Dealer’s Responsibility:

The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act requires dealers to ensure that all new and used vehicles are free of safety defects and comply with all relevant safety standards at the time of delivery to the consumer.

Dealers should make their personnel aware of the safety recall. In the event that a dealer has a vehicle included in the safety recall in their inventory to be sold, the condition must be corrected before releasing it to a customer.

 

Release Schedule:

  • Vehicle list will be posted on the Trucks Dealer Portal July 12, 2019.
  • Owner notification letters will be released on or before August 19, 2019.

If you have questions or concerns about this recall, contact the Regulatory Affairs Department at [email protected]volvo.com.

Subject: I-Shift Transmission ECU Fuse and Auxiliary Air Tank Safety Recalls

 

Volvo Trucks North America has identified two safety-related defects in certain VAH, VHD, VNL and VNM models.

 

I-Shift Transmission ECU Fuse

The first recall (RVXX1903) is on certain MY 2018-2020 VAH, VHD, VNL and VNM models manufactured from June 13, 2017 through March 28, 2019. On certain trucks, the fuse used in a transmission circuit has a rating that is lower than what is required. The risk is the fuse can open under normal operating conditions and cause the transmission to not shift. This does not affect the brake system; however, under certain conditions this may contribute to a vehicle crash.

The total number of affected trucks is 530 (235 in the U.S., 265 in Canada and 30 in Mexico).

 

I-Shift Transmission Auxiliary Air Tank

The second recall (RVXX1904) is on certain MY 2019-2020 VAH, VHD, VNL and VNM models manufactured from July 2, 2018 through March 28, 2019. On certain trucks, the torque applied to the t-bolt clasps on the transmission auxiliary air tank straps may have been over-torqued causing deformation to the strap where the t-bolt is anchored. The deformation may allow the t-bolt to disconnect from the strap, allowing the tank to drop to the ground which may result in debris on the road presenting a risk to other road users.

Total number of affected trucks is 20,590 (17,069 in the U.S., 3,111 in Canada and 410 in Mexico).

We will be performing safety recalls to address the affected vehicles. Production is not affected as corrective action has been introduced and there have been no reported accidents.
