43,000 Volkswagen Cars To Be Recalled For Their Faulty Rear-View Camera

Author: |

The rearview camera may not provide an image on the infotainment system, prompting the recall of more than 43,000 Volkswagen vehicles in the US. The eMMC memory modules in the impacted infotainment systems had their chip software flashed before it was connected to the PCB, according to a recall notice. It has been discovered that modules built using this technology and a certain kind of chip do not show the image from the rear-view camera on the infotainment display.

By flashing updated infotainment software into impacted vehicles, Volkswagen will fix the problem. By doing this, the undervoltage problem that led to the malfunction will be fixed. Sometime around September 16, 2022, dealers and owners will be notified.
