The Problem: The LED module for the panoramic-sunroof ambient light bar may short circuit, increasing the risk of fire.

The Fix: Dealers will disconnect the power supply for the panoramic-sunroof LED module until a future service action can safely reactivate the feature. This service will be done for free.

What Owners Should Do: Volkswagen began notifying owners July 24. Owners can call the automaker at 800-893-5298, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
