Software errors in the airbag control unit may cause the passenger airbag’s deactivation status to be wrongly displayed. As a result, a rear-facing child seat could be used incorrectly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.
The Fiat 500e models affected by this recall were manufactured between 8 September 2020 and 26 January 2021.
