The reason behind the recall is a possible failure in the main electric power source in the vehicle in case of a collision and, the activation of the second phase of the airbag due to incorrect fixing the wires in the fuse box, which will inactivate the automatic operations in case of crash, therefore, the doors won’t be automatically unlocked and an emergency call cannot be made. The company will change the function of the front fuse in the fuse box and SCN code the airbag control unit in the vehicles affected.
These recalls confirm PACP efforts in traffic safety and constant care to conduct continuous reviews of all the available products in the markets of Oman in order to provide the necessary protection for the consumers in all areas.
