Overload in the hybrid control electronics

On the above vehicles, the emergency program may be activated following heavy acceleration.

Due to excessive acceleration, the hybrid control electronics may become overloaded, causing the vehicle to switch to the emergency program.

The vehicle manufacturer has already addressed the issue and notified the owners of all the affected models of the service operation.

For various reasons, however, it can be assumed that not all vehicles have been inspected and repaired.

The specialist garage will perform a software update on the affected vehicles.
