Passenger car
Risk
The product poses a risk of fire because water could penetrate into the electric cooling fan control unit and this could result in a short circuit and, in the worst scenario, a fire. Since the fan is permanently connected to the battery voltage, a fire could occur when the vehicle is parked, with the ignition switched either on or off. Four incidents of fires reported in Sweden.
