Volvo recalls over 100,000 cars over brake issue affecting ABS, ESC and traction control, fix coming via OTA update

Swedish carmaker Volvo has initiated a recall for about 106,900 vehicles worldwide over a rare issue affecting the brake-by-wire system. The recall covers most Volvo models including the C40, XC40, S60, XC60, V60, V90 and XC90.

As reported by Auto Blog, the in-vehicle diagnostic test to check the grounding of the system can trigger a fault with the Brake Control Module 2 (BCM2). When the fault is triggered, the vehicle will revert to its hydraulic system so that drivers can still stop the car. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the United States elaborated that the issue is due to a diagnostic BCM2 which can cause the loss of the Antilock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and traction control.
