Date 22 febrero 2021
Country of origin Japan
reporting country Romania
Description 

Due to a defect in the hill start assist – a system that holds the vehicle for a few seconds so that it does not roll backwards when starting uphill – when the vehicle moves from a slippery surface, such as a patch of ice, to a grippier surface and the driver applies the brake immediately, the vehicle may suddenly accelerate after releasing the brake, increasing the risk of an accident. In addition, the brake lights may illuminate when driving in reverse even if the brake pedal is not depressed, due to an incorrect lighting control setting.

The eCall system – the device that makes a call to the emergency services when the vehicle is involved in an accident – could malfunction and not transmit the VIN number of the affected vehicle – which is the one used to identify it – when the car is involved in an accident. This can cause a delay in the action of the emergency and rescue services, increasing the risk of injury to the occupants involved.

Description 

The vehicle’s VIN information is not registered in the eCall – a device that, thanks to the car’s integrated SIM card, allows the vehicle to make a call to 112 in case of emergency and provide data such as the vehicle’s location. As a result, this information cannot be transmitted to the eCall system in a situation where an airbag is deployed – a sign that a car has been involved in an accident of some significance – causing it to operate incorrectly.
