What are the defects?

The routing of the starter motor cable may be incorrect and as a result, could contact the engine mounting.

What are the hazards?

If the starter motor cable is in contact with, or in close proximity to the engine mounting, the vibration of the engine can cause the outer sheathing of the cable to wear through, exposing the wires. The continued use of the vehicle with exposed wires may cause subsequent arching and a short circuit that could result in illumination of a warning light on the instrument panel, possible vehicle stalling, melting of the battery cable sheathing and surrounding parts that could lead to smoke from under the bonnet and in extreme circumstances, an under-bonnet fire.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will notified and instructed to take their vehicle to an Authorised Retailer who will inspect the routing of the starter motor cable and where appropriate re-route and/or replace the component if damage is observed.
