The 15-amp fuse problem was discovered at the factory when filling a car with fuel, then more incidents were reported from the field.

"After a wake-up/pre-run, e.g. unlocking the vehicle, opening the door, or pushing on the brake pedal. The 15A fuse might blow when Engine Control Module (ECM) demands shut off of the Fuel Delivery Module (FDM) due to electrical current peaks." — Volvo

A vehicle could stall and fail to start if the fuse blows and the fuel pump fails, but a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) will be able to either stop or continue to drive as long as the battery charge allows.

Volvo is unaware of any crash or injury reports related to the blown fuel pump fuses.

Volvo dealers will replace the 15A fuel pump fuses with 20A fuses once owner recall notices are mailed August 1, 2021.
