Due to an error in configuring the function monitoring device in the Body Control Module (BCM), a failure of the LED turn signals at the front is not always detected. The mandatory warning (acoustic/optical) does not occur in these cases.
As a result, the driver will not be notified of possible failure of the direction indicators, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Skoda Superb models affected by this recall were manufactured between 2013 and 2015.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Skoda dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
