VARIATION TO ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE IN THE BLOWER REGULATOR WIRING HARNESS CONNECTOR
Over time irregularities in the crimp connection in conjunction with relative movements of the tin coated connector at the end of the wiring harness which connects to the tin coated blower regulator pin could lead to frictional corrosion. In combination with very high current flow which would occur which could lead to a temperature increase. As a result the blower regulator wiring could be damaged and could lead to partial contact of individual wire strands. this could result in an irregular current flow further overheating and increase the risk of fire.
The blower regulator wiring harness will be inspected and a new part will be installed.

PLUG IN CONTACT CABLE MAY MALFUNCTION
The positive battery cable to the front distribution box behind the glove box can become damaged by vibrations and frictional corrosion. This may cause a loss of electrical connection to the distributions box. Symptoms include being unable to gain entry or start the car but the most common are a flickering instrument panel or uneven engine performance. However if the electrical connection is completely lost this will also affect the operation of the vehicles lighting systems; e.g. sidelights or hazard warning lamps.
On affected vehicles carry out a suitable repair to the battery cable positive cable.

EPS MAY NOT PERFORM AS SPECIFIED
Due to a component in the integrated control module not being to specification it is possible power steering assistance may fail. If this happens the EPS warning lamp will illuminate and a check control message will appear on the dashboard display. Directional control will be maintained albeit with additional driver input.
Recall vehicles likely to be affected to replace the steering box.

ENGINE MAY CUT OUT
It is possible that the connection between the B+ cable and the Power Distribution Box can become damaged by wear and heat which is caused by high current flow and high contact resistance. Normally this will result in a non-start situation after parking the vehicle. However it is possible that this could in extreme cases occur whilst the vehicle is in motion. The driver should be make aware of the issue by flickering of the instrument cluster (dash) or an engine mis-fire; but if the driver does not then the engine could cut-out without warning.
Recall all affected vehicles and replace the cable/connection with a more robust item.

DOOR PRESSURE SENSORS MAY DELAY SIDE AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT FOLLOWING AN IMPACT.
It has been identified that the connections for the left and right hand door pressure sensors have been reversed at their connection with the airbag control unit. This would have the effect of delaying the detection of a side impact thus causing the airbag to be deployed too late. It should be noted that the fault would not be indicted by the illumination of the airbag system warning lamp.
Recalled vehicles will have the pin assignment of the airbag control unit corrected.
