Audi recalled 144,000 vehicles due to a problem with the airbags. While the root cause is still unknown, the company is updating its software to fix the problem.

Many cars have a passenger detection system to prevent unnecessary deployment of the airbags. This means that in the event of an accident, the system deactivates the airbags in the seat if there is no one in the seat, but in the event of a fault in the system, major problems may arise, as in some Audi vehicles.

Audi recalled the 144,000 vehicles because of this problem. The recalled vehicle models include the 2017 and 2018 Audi A4 / S4 models and the 2018 A5 / S5 models, but the recalled vehicles only show up before July 31, 2019.

Audi 144.000 Aracı Geri Çağırdı

The problem is caused by the passenger restraint system connected to the passenger airbag. The system’s işlev self-diagnosis ayarlanmış is set very precisely so that if the protection of the cable connected to the system experiences any slight oxidation, the system malfunctions. Therefore, the airbags are deactivated.

According to Audi’s statement on problematic vehicles, the “airbag off” light and the airbag warning light will be on in case of any malfunction. Nevertheless, this defect may increase the risk of injury in the event of an impact.

In the middle of 2017, Audi started work on the subject when it received more field reports on passenger sensing system changes. The giant manufacturer collaborated with the supplier to investigate the data and find out where the problem is, but the company still can’t explain why this problem has developed and why some of the tools are more susceptible. The company started to recall its vehicles against possible errors.

Although the source of the problem is not known, there is a small and simple solution to fix the problem; it also updates the software of the recalled tools. This will reduce the sensitivity of the self-diagnosis function and the system will not react to oxidation, but the problem is still not corrected in the production part. Therefore, the recall notification to vehicle owners may arrive by mid-September.
