This recall was issued on January 23rd, 2017 and all the details of this VW recall (R/2017/040 - LIGHTS MAY FAIL WITHOUT WARNING) are provided bellow:
Reason for concern:
LIGHTS MAY FAIL WITHOUT WARNING
Reason for recall:
It has been identified that due to a programing issue with the On-Board Supply Control Unit it is possible that the failure of one of the vehicle lights (dipped beam/main beam/daytime running light/rear fog light or indicator) may not be recognised by the control unit and therefore not shown in the instrument cluster. It is also possible that vehicle lights may be shown as faulty when they are not. Furthermore a failure of a dipped beam may not trigger a replacement response (activation of side lights). A light failure without a display in the instrument cluster or without replacement response can pose a danger of an accident especially in the dark.
Recall all affected vehicles to reprogramme the On-Board Supply Control Unit.
