The contact owns a 2008 Cadillac Dts. The contact stated that the window washer fluid was leaking and could potentially short out the other electrical components of the rear windshield wiper. The failure was burning up the fuses and could cause a fire. The vehicle was experiencing the same failure as listed in NHTSA campaign number: 08V441000 (electrical system). The contact spoke with britain Chevrolet Cadillac (4495 interstate hwy 30, greenville, tx 75402, (903) 274-4401) and was informed to bring in the vehicle. The contact would be charged for the repairs. The manufacturer was not contacted. An independent mechanic diagnosed that the entire fuse box and harness located under the back seat needed to be replaced. The mechanic would not perform any repairs due to a potential fire. The failure mileage was 200,000.
