Recall Ref: R/2009/016
Exact Model: Focus
Description: RISK OF FIRE
Build Date: 01 Jun 2006 to 25 Jan 2007
Numbers: 22156
Defect: It has been identified that, due to a specification change to the engine cooling fan module, vehicles operated in countries which have high road salt usage during the winter months may experience an increased risk of corrosion build up. In extreme cases, the corrosion can penetrate the electrical circuits and result in overheating. In rare cases the overheating may be sufficient to ignite the cooling fan control module and surrounding wiring whilst the vehicle is parked.
Action: Recalled vehicles will be fitted with a supplementary wiring loom that removes the power to the fan control module when the ignition is switched off. Additionally, a further water shield will be fitted to protect the module against water entry and corrosion build up.
Launch Date: 08 April 2009
