Audi issues a recall this week for over 340,000 cars over faulty coolant pumps, which can over heat or short circuit!
According to NY Daily News:
The issue lies with a faulty electric coolant pump in the affected vehicles that may overheat or short-circuit when it comes in contact with road debris or moisture. If this happens, a fire could start under the hood.
Affected vehicles include 342,867 4-cylinder versions of 2013-2017 A5 and Q5, 2012-2015 A6 and 2013-2016 A4 and A4 Allroad models. This is the second recall addressing the coolant pumps problem. Back in January 2017, Audi applied software updates to the affected vehicles that would shut off the coolant pump if it began to overheat. That didn’t work.
In order to fix the problem now, dealers will replace the faulty equipment with a redesigned coolant pump that has a new “pressure compensation element.” Repairs are scheduled to begin mid-June.
