Volkswagen recall for incorrect headlight software

Volkswagen recall for 2022-2024 Audi Q4 E-TRON for incorrect headlight software.

Volkswagen is recalling 17,797 of its 2022-2024 Q4 E-TRON and Q4 E-TRON Sportback vehicles. In the NHTSA report, the automobile manufacturer said the incorrect headlight control module software may have been installed on the vehicles. This issue can cause the parking lights, headlights and turn signals not to function properly. This will interfere with the vehicle’s visibility and increase the risk of a crash.

These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment,” the NHTSA said.

To resolve this issue dealers will update the headlight control module with a new data set. All services will be completed for free. Notification letters are expected to be delivered by July 12. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Audi’s number for this recall is 941L.

Right now, Ford is asking owners of the affected vehicles not to use their cell phones while reversing until a remedy is completed. Dealers will install shielding on the APIM for free.
