Atlanta, GA – May 8, 2022 – Porsche (OTCMKTS:POAHY) is recalling 9,570 2020-2021 Porsche Taycan sedans. whose airbags may fail to deploy as a result of damaged wiring. This reduces the level of protection in an event of a crash, increasing the risk of an injury.
The airbags in the recalled vehicles are powered by wiring harnesses under the driver and passenger seats. Because of a supplier error, the harness can get caught up in the seat adjustment mechanism and become damaged when the seats get adjusted.
This can render the vehicle’s airbags inoperable.
The component causing this recall is the seat wire harness with part number N105938.
Airbag failing to deploy increases the risk of injury in a crash.
The airbag warning light will appear on the dashboard in case the wires that connect to them get damaged. Apart from that, occupants may have a hard time adjusting the seats or notice “ abnormal noise during adjustment.”
Other Porsche Taycan recalls
This is not the only Porsche EV Recall that may be affecting these vehicles. Some of them could also have an issue with inaccessible child seat anchors, which prompted a recall last month.
Dealers will inspect the harness under both front seats and repair any worn wiring. In addition, to prevent any future damage, they will wrap the harness with textile fabric tape. Notifications to vehicle owners will be sent on June 24, 2022 and all repairs will be done free of charge.
