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.
