Recall Details
Concern : RISK OF FIRE
Description : This recall covers two defects: 1. The electrical cable may chafe at the bracket of the engine control unit. This may cause a malfunction in some electrical systems. In a worst case the chafing could lead to a short circuit between un-fused, positive cables and the bracket with a resultant risk of fire. 2. The oil dipstick guide tube on these vehicles is used for possible oil extraction. In some circumstances it is possible engine oil can escape via the oil dip stick guide creating a fire risk.
Remedial Action : 1. Install an edge guard at the bracket of the engine control unit to prevent chafing of the engine/transmission wiring harness. 2. Retrofit an optimised stop plug for the oil dipstick guide tube.
