The Porsche Taycan is Recalled Again

A wiring harness in the Porsche Taycan could prevent the airbags and seatbelt tensioners from working properly.

  • Porsche has recalled the Taycan electric sports car many times already

  • This recall is due to the wiring harnesses under the front seats

  • Damaged harnesses could prevent the airbags and seat belt tensioners from being activated in a crash

Porsche launched a recall for 40,000 units of the Porsche Taycan globally, or about half of the entire production run to date.

This recall will address an issue with the wiring harnesses under the driver and front passenger seats that could be damaged and lead to a higher risk of injury.

Due to their placement or to a lack of space around them, the wiring harnesses can be damaged when adjusting the seats forward and aft.

Damaged harnesses can lead to a malfunction in the car’s safety systems that could fail to deploy the airbags and the seatbelt tensioners in case of an impact.

This is dangerous since the lack of these safety systems can lead to severe injuries to the occupants of the vehicle.

This is not the first time Porsche had to recall the Taycan, but it is among the largest campaigns that have affected the brand’s first electric model. Just a few weeks ago, 43,000 units of the Taycan had to return to the manufacturer for an update created to prevent a sudden loss of power.

A similar recall had already been made in China for 6,172 vehicles built for the 2020 and 2021 model years, the same that are targeted in the current global recall. In the Chinese recall, the problem was found to be the plastic sheath around the wires that could get caught in the seat’s adjuster motor when it is being operated.

Porsche will have its dealers inspect and replace both the under-seat wiring harnesses at no expense to the owners.
