Some Volvos Might Blow A Fuse, Recall Issued For 85,000 Cars And SUVs

Volvo is recalling more than 85,000 vehicles in the United States due to a fuel pump issue.

Documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal that the 15A fuse to the low-pressure fuel pump might blow when the engine control module demands the shut off of the fuel delivery module due to electrical current peaks.

Volvo states that a blown fuse will prevent the low-pressure fuel pump from operating and will cause the engine to stall while also preventing any impacted engine from starting. The automaker is not aware of any reports of injuries, fatalities or crashes related to the issue and notes that its PHEV models impacted by the issue will be able to stop and start safely as long as they have charge in their batteries.

The issue was identified in some cases among customer cars and when the Swedish automaker filled their fuel systems at its factory.

Involved in the recall are S60, S90 and S90L sedans, V60, V60 Cross Country, V90, and V90 Cross Country wagons, and XC60 and XC90 SUVs, all from the 2019 and 2020 model years.

Volvo plans to notify owners of the issue on August 1 and will fix the issue by simply replacing the faulty 15A fuse with a 20A fuse. Concerned owners can reach out to Volvo directly for any information and can also check out the NHTSA safety recall report for more details.
