Risk
The product poses a risk of fire because some vehicles without power seats have an unused power seat connector under the front seats, which is powered even when the ignition is switched off. If snow and road salt penetrate the housing of this connector, corrosion of the connector terminals can occur, leading to the possibility that the connector will melt due to burning.
