Volkswagen Recalls 71,000 Vehicles

Citing an electrical problem, Volkswagen of America Inc. said Wednesday it is recalling more than 71,000 Jetta sedans.

According to a statement from the automaker, the company is recalling certain 2011 Jetta models to fix a potential problem with the wiring of its horn and an anti-theft system. Volkswagen says a fuse that protects the car’s anti-theft alarm and the converter box that operates the windshield wipers and headlights could malfunction. Under certain circumstances, a short circuit in the horn can cause the headlights and windshield wipers to stop working, which would increase the risk of a car accident.

The recall affects the 2011 model-year Jettas build between March 2010 and March 2011.

The company will notify owners of the defective vehicles by first class mail with information about corrective measures. Volkswagen dealer service technicians will reinstall the vehicles’ wiring so the convertor box and horn do not share the same fuse.

The company says no injuries or accidents have been reported as a result of the flaw.
