More Details on the Volkswagen Wiring Harness Problems

The Associated Press reported on March 15, 2022, that 47 people had complained to U.S. safety regulators about unexpected braking reportedly resulting from a potentially faulty wiring harness in Volkswagen Atlas vehicles.

Three days later, Volkswagen issued a recall of the vehicles, stating in part that the electrical contacts on a wiring harness in either of the front doors can corrode, interrupting electrical connections. The problem can cause the side air bags to deploy too late in a crash, or unexpectedly trigger the parking brake. 

Many consumers who have complained about these problems to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have described how the unexpected braking has put them in dangerous situations.

There is reportedly no remedy in place to fix the alleged Volkswagen Atlas defect.
