What are the defects?

Due to improper Engine Control Module (ECM) programming, the ignition coil may overheat, creating a short circuit which may blow the ignition coil fuse.

What are the hazards?

If the ignition coil fuse blows, the engine may stop while driving and not restart. This can increase the risk of an accident, causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted and asked to arrange an appointment for inspection and repair, free of charge.
