Skoda Australia — Skoda Octavia MY08 & MY09
What are the defects?
The thermal overload within the ABS control unit can interrupt the current flow to the ABS control unit. This would stop the ABS from functioning correctly and would illuminate the warning light on the dash.
What are the hazards?
A failed ABS/ESC system can restrict the protection provided. This can potentially lead to a danger of an accident, especially in critical driving situations.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted in writing and the software for the ABS/ESC control unit that regularly checks the function of the unit will be updated.
