Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)

What are the defects?

Due to a software issue, the automatic network search of the emergency call system (eCall) communication module may be deactivated. In this case, the automatic and manual emergency call may not be available outside of the network coverage of certain providers.

What are the hazards?

If the eCall system is deactivated, in the event of an emergency it would not be possible for the vehicle occupants to connect with emergency services, either manually or automatically. As a consequence, emergency vehicles may not be directed to the affected vehicle or may be delayed. This could increase the risk of death if a serious injury has occurred.

What should consumers do?

No action required by consumers, the software will be updated "over the air" not requiring a workshop visit. This will be done with no cost to the owner or any data usage.
