Volkswagen of America announced today that it is recalling 71,043 units of the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta sedans for a wiring problem that could cause the car to turn off when the horn is used.

Volkswagen is conducting the voluntary safety recall to reconfigure a wiring layout associated with the anti-theft alarm system and horn. The German automaker said that no injuries or accidents have been reported as a result of this condition.

“The recall affects sixth generation Jetta sedan vehicles built between March of 2010 and March of 2011,” Volkswagen said. “Affected owners will be notified via first class mail regarding the corrective measures and anticipated repair timeline.”
