Huge 2010-2016 Panamera Recall

Copying this from another forum...

From Car Buzz:
https://apple.news/Ao6D4s2jhSG2Zo4v8YF4RPg

Porsche's recalling the bulk of its first-gen four-doors to keep them from catching fire.

Porsche has issued a recall notice for certain examples of the Panamera. 33,206 of them,
to be precise, from the 2010 to 2016 model years.

The recall includes close to the entire array of Panamera variants offered during those years,
including base, S, 4, 4S, GTS, Turbo, Turbo S, and S E-Hybrid models, as well as
long-wheelbase Executive, special Platinum and Exclusive Series editions, and diesel models.

Those first-gen models, though, have apparently had a problem with water leaking into the
A/C blower control unit. The moisture could cause the electronics to short-circuit, which in turn
could spark a fire. So Porsche is instructing its dealership technicians to add a relay harness
and reseal the entire blower control unit to keep water from getting in. In the meantime, it's
advising owners to park their Panameras outside, lest a potential fire spread to, say, the entire
house and engulf everyone and everything inside.

Recall #19V322000 (04/24/2019)

  • Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
  • Summary: Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain 2010-2016 Panamera 4S and Panamera S, 2011-2016 Panamera, Panamera 4 and Panamera Turbo, 2012-2016 Panamera Turbo S and Panamera S E-Hybrid, 2013-2016 Panamera GTS, 2013 Panamera Platinum Edition and Panamera 4 Platinum Edition, 2014-2016 Panamera 4S Executive, Panamera Turbo Executive and Panamera Turbo S Executive, 2015 Panamera Diesel and 2016 Panamera 4 Edition, Panamera Edition and Panamera Turbo S Exclusive Series vehicles. Water may enter the A/C blower control unit, causing an electrical short circuit.
  • Consequence: An electrical short increases the risk of fire.
  • What owners should do: Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will add a relay harness to the A/C blower control unit and reseal it to prevent water from leaking in, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 23, 2019. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is AKA7. Note: Porsche recommends that owners park their vehicle outdoors until the recall remedy has been performed.

edit: I didn't get a hit thru VIN at Porsche and probably won't until later on I would guess. Just passing along since it had some specific recall # or AKA7 code

Makes you wonder...i don't "recall" seeing anyone post about their Panamera catching on fire since 2010, unless I missed it.

I think it's too early to enter it in, I'm hearing mid to late June.

As I mentioned in the other forum, I feel comfortable with it as-is since I have not seen a single post about fires for all them years.

Awesome, I just picked up a one owner 2010 4s 2 weeks ago. Never owned a Porsche before, guess it is a good time to have the dealer check for any other recalls.

Description

There is a possibility of an electric short-circuit in the A/C blower control unit caused by water ingress.

Safety Risk

Water intrusion, over time, could lead to a short circuit in the A/C blower control unit. In rare instances, the electrical short could result in a thermal event or fire. This issue is detectable by the driver when the vehicle is operated, and the vehicle can be brought to a controlled stop and all occupants can exit the vehicle. However, it is possible that the thermal event or fire could occur after the vehicle is parked and shut off. To mitigate this risk, customers will be provided with instructions to park their vehicles outdoors until they are remedied.

Remedy

The permanent remedy will involve replacement of the A/C blower control unit with a redesigned unit with improved water intrusion resistance to help prevent water ingress. Porsche is also finalizing an interim remedy that will depower the A/C blower control unit when the vehicle is shut-off. This remedy will be offered until an adequate supply of the redesigned control units are available.

Recall is for the blower motor. If you have no COLD A/C that's another operation issue. Can't hurt to have dealer check it out when recall work is performed.

Probably doesn't work for European cars:




But for Panny Turbo/Turbo S was only one recall (and it was related to fire):
