      Major recall for AEB issue on 2019+ Vehicles

      A heads up on an upcoming safety recall. The Danish safety board guys found an issue with the AEB in V90, S90, V60, S60, XC60, XC90 and XC40 manufactured by Volvo after January 21, 2019.
      The article was published in a technical magazine Sweden and may, therefore, appear in Swedish but I am sure you can all find Google translate. Sofware fix is to be issued by Volvo and affected owners notified thru' the usual recall routes. The AEB didnt function correctly and failed to brake properly when approaching an obstacle.

      FWIW it's being fixed with just software, not the windshield replacement the article says. It's a stop sale on new cars but quick patch.

      "Volvo Car USA LLC and Volvo Car Canada LTD (Volvo) on behalf of Volvo Car Group, has decided to launch Recall R29998 on certain Volvo S60,V60,V60CC, S90L,V90,V90CC, XC40, XC60 and XC90 MY 2019-2020.
      Volvo has identified that the Active Safety Domain Master (ASDM) micro-processor can’t interpret the temperature status properly from internal memory, leading to low confidence value from the camera.
      ASDM quality signal may be suppressed from the camera, which leads to a downgrading of the AEB (Automatic Emergency Brake) functionality, a part of Volvo Intellisafe package.
      Volvo Cars Investigations have identified that the Automatic Emergency Brake System (AEB), a part of the driver support system - IntelliSafe, may not always work due to a software issue. In an emergency situation where the driver may be inattentive or does not react on oncoming obstacles, the AEB system may not always engage which could increase the risk of collision.
      Please note that the regular brake system and all other functions in these vehicles are not affected."

      I believe Volvo's continues to display a commitment to safety by identifying and correcting faults that otherwise may have gone unnoticed. I doubt something of this magnitude would be easily identifiable by the end user (customer) and probably originated from the quality control side (engineers). Giving Volvo Customers piece of mind that Volvo has no problems doing internal reviews of their safety systems correcting flaws when necessary.

      Only in this case Volvo didnt spot the fault. It was the Danish Vehicle Safety guys. Volvo have, as ever, reacted promptly by thoroughly investigataing and finding a solution. Then getting a recall put out with the minimum of delay. (a few months I think)
