Holden VF Commodore seat position sensor recall

VF Holden Commodore and Caprice recalled over seat sensor issues.

Holden VF Commodore seat position sensor recall - the recall affects Holden Commodore and Caprice vehicles built in 2014.

Owners of VF Holden Commodore sedan, ute and wagon models and WN Holden Caprice are facing a return trip to a Holden dealership to have an issue with the front seat position sensors attended to.

The Holden VF Commodore seat position sensor recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and affects Holden Commodore and Caprice vehicles built between the 8th of April 2014 and the 17th of September 2014.

The ACCC recall notice says that if the driver’s seat base has been replaced for any reason, the seat position sensor may be inoperative.

If the vehicle has an inoperative seat position sensor, has the driver’s seat adjusted to a forward position and is involved in an accident that requires deployment of the frontal air-bags, the air-bag will deploy with marginally more force than intended.

In the case of a crash that requires deployment of the frontal airbags, there is the potential for increased occupant injury.

Holden will write to all affected customers to notify them of required action.
