VEHICLE MAKE/MODEL: MODEL YEAR(S):
MANUFACTURER: Volvo Cars of N.A. LLC.
MFR'S REPORT DATE: August 28, 2009
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER: 09V343000

POTENTIAL NUMBER OF UNITS AFFECTED: 11993
Volvo is recalling M/Y 2008-2010 S80, model year 2009-2010 XC70 and model year 2010 XC60 vehicles. Under certain conditions the software within
the Central Electronic Module (CEM) may not send a signal to the Fuel Pump Electronic Module (PEM). This missing signal to the PEM inhibits the
start of the fuel pump. The driver may be able to start the engine in spite of the fuel pump not being activated due to residual pressure in the fuel system.
In some cases, the driver may be able to drive the vehicle a short distance at idle but then the engine may stall.
If the vehicle stalls in certain conditions, a crash could occur.
Dealers will download software to the vehicle's CEM free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before September 30, 2009. Vehicles in
dealer's inventory will be repaired prior to delivery. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.
Volvo recall No. R215. Owners may also contact The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236
