Just under 45 thousand Volvo vehicles are set to be recalled beginning on November 14 due to an air conditioner defect that can cause the airbags to stop working.
Volvo said in a statement that the drain hose meant to redirect condensation from the air conditioner may not have been properly installed, allowing water to drop onto the engine management system responsible for the deployment of the airbags.
Knowledge of the problem came from field reports covering 2016 and 2017 XC90 SUVs and S90 sedans. Dealers are able to inspect affected vehicles and replace the drain hose and, possibly, wiring in the car.
