WASHINGTON — Volvo is recalling 7,767 2014 Volvo S60, S80, XC60 and XC70 vehicles in the U.S. because a software problem may cause the headlights and turn signals to malfunction, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall involves cars equipped with keyless ignition.

"In the affected vehicles, the Central Electronic Module or CEM will not perform as intended," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "As a result, the front windshield wipers might run continuously when the ignition is on. Also, the turn signals, high beams and headlight switch might not work. Malfunctioning headlights and/or turn signals increase the risk of a crash."

Volvo told federal safety regulators that the cruise control may not work in the affected vehicles and that the "battery may drain due to high quiescent current."

Drivers may be alerted to the problem when restarting the engine after the vehicle has been in sleep mode.

"The amber-colored warning light in the Driver Information Module (DIM) will illuminate and there may be a message displayed e.g. 'Alarm system service required,'" said Volvo in documentation filed with the federal government. "There may also be other messages in the DIM depending on individual vehicle equipment."

Volvo dealers will upgrade the CEM software. Volvo has not set a date for the recall. Owners can contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.

Edmunds says: If you own one of the aforementioned 2014 Volvos and are experiencing a problem with the car, you'll want to get it into the dealership before receiving your formal recall notice.
