Lucid introduced in Could that it’s recalling a lot of the 2022 Air sedans it has constructed for the reason that new EV went into manufacturing so as to deal with a possible drawback with their in-cabin show wiring harnesses. There will not be satisfactory clearance between the harnesses and steering column elements, which may end up in rubbing and potential chafing of the wiring harnesses.
Over time, this might trigger the harnesses to fail, rendering the Air’s major screens — together with the speedometer and different cluster shows — inoperable. The recall applies to all 2022 Lucid Air fashions constructed up till Could 3, 2022 — simply 1,117 automobiles — and Lucid says the difficulty can lead to intermittent show failures or flickering. The vehicles in query are so new that it is unlikely that any clients should cope with the issue earlier than having their vehicles repaired.
“Lucid has decided that on sure 2022 Lucid Air fashions the harness containing the ethernet wiring for the middle and left driver shows will not be secured correctly,” Lucid’s defect discover stated. “This might end in chafing of the harness because of contact with the steering intermediate shaft. Harm to the harness might result in a possible lack of knowledge communications to the shows. Lack of communication at these screens might interrupt updating of the speedometer, gear choice indicators, telltales and different in-vehicle notifications, leading to noncompliance with FMVSS 101.”
Lucid says the difficulty stemmed from slack in some batches of harnesses that was not adequately secured. The difficulty was fastened in manufacturing as of Could 4, so any car constructed after that date needs to be good to go. The corporate says it has not acquired any experiences of show failures within the subject and given how few Airs Lucid has offered, we count on that can stay the case. That is Lucid’s second recall for the 2022 Air sedan; the earlier recall was for an improperly put in rear suspension element.
