Audi re-recalls 343K vehicles to replace coolant pumps

Audi re-recalls 343K vehicles to replace coolant pumps

German automaker making second attempt to solve problem. An Audi spokesman in the USA said there have been reports of fires but he had no details.

Audi has issued a second recall for almost 343,000 vehicles to address ongoing problems with overheating coolant pumps. In either case a short-circuiting coolant pump increases the chance of a vehicle fire. Audi says the coolant pumps are vulnerable to moisture, capable of causing an electric short, or debris blockage from the cooling system, according to government documents obtained by the AP.

The recall covers the 2013 to 2016 A4, the 2013 to 2017 A5, the 2012 to 2015 A6, and the Q5 SUV from 2013 to 2017. No reports of fires are listed. As of now, the dealers will install the new version of the current pumps until the newly redesigned pumps are available.

Previously, last year Audi recalled several vehicles for some software update and dealers did the software update.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the pumps free of charge. But the company says in documents posted Tuesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that did not resolve the problem as pump problems continued.
