What are the defects?

The units are missing a circuit breaker (a fuse). This fuse disconnects power to the unit if there is a short circuit in the wiring. A short circuit may occur if the vehicle has a flat battery and the battery is not replaced but the vehicle is given a jump start.

What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, the wiring may overheat and lead to an engine-bay fire.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should immediately contact the supplier by phoning 08 9221 2345 between 8.30am and 4.30pm (AWST) Monday - Friday for further instructions. Arrangements will need to be made for the vehicle to attend a local service centre to have a technician install the missing fuse in the unit.

Consumers can contact the supplier and obtain the details of their nearest service centre by phoning 08 9221 2345 between 8.30am and 4.30pm (AWST) Monday - Friday.
