Volvo has to repair 15,674 vehicles of various plug-in hybrid models in the USA. Incorrect commands can occur in the cooling circuit of the electric drive due to faulty software logic, which causes the combustion engine not to start, resulting in a loss of drive power.
The problem is apparently not extremely widespread, as Volvo recorded 39 reports alleging this condition. The first reports of hybrids breaking down were received this past summer, with owners alleging a no-start condition plus multiple warning lights for things like reduced performance and charging system issues. The preliminary investigation was initiated on August 22nd.
