Risk
The product poses a risk of fire as transition resistance may be unacceptably high in the earth connection of the heating element of the additional air heater. This may cause overheating in this cable's connection area, damage resulting from excessive temperatures and, in the worst case scenario, it could set the vehicle on fire.
