COMPONENT: Vehicle Speed Control 

POTENTIAL NUMBER OF UNITS AFFECTED: 170099 

SUMMARY: 
 On certain passenger vehicles, a combination of throttle positioning sensor irregularities, a dirty throttle housing, and/or inefficient software calibration
may cause a warning lamp to light and the subsequent onset of limp home modes. 

CONSEQUENCE: 
 This resulted in a high number of vehicles going into the limp home mode without need. 

REMEDY: 
 Dealers will install the current software upgrade onto the involved vehicles. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for
this recall. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.
