What are the defects?

Due to a design defect, moisture may leak into the additional coolant pump’s control unit. This may cause an electrical short circuit and result in a vehicle fire.

What are the hazards?

A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.

What should consumers do?

Note: The AUTO REST button in the centre console should not be pressed until the replacement pump has been fitted.

Owners of affected vehicles should temporarily park their vehicle outdoors and a sufficient distance away from other vehicles and buildings to minimise any possible risk to persons as well as the surrounding area.

Owners of affected vehicles can contact their preferred Official Porsche Centre to arrange an inspection and repair of their vehicle, free of charge.

Owners can find their nearest Porsche dealer at https://www.porsche.com/australia/dealersearch/.
