Recall: 2010 Volkswagen Routan for Faulty Ignition Module

Edward A. SanchezMar 11, 2011
Following hot on the heels of the same issue with the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country, Volkswagen has now issued a recall notice for the wireless ignition module with its 2010 Routan minivan. Vehicles built between October 2009 through June 2010 are affected.
The Problem: A problem with the wireless ignition node (WIN) module may cause the Town & Country, Grand Caravan, or Journey AWD key to inadvertently go from Run to Accessory without warning. That would immediately shut off the engine, creating a driver safety hazard.
The Fix: Dealers will replace WIN modules for free. The safety recall is expected to begin in April 2011.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 12,612
