If this occurs, current flow can heat the connector andrelease fumes into the passenger compartment, and can result in a vehicle fire.

Vehicles Affected
NHTSA Campaign #
An unused power seat harness connector is positioned on the rubber floor mat under the seat. If the vehicle is operated in cold weather in areas that have large amounts of salt used for snow and ice control, a puddle of saltwater can accumulate on the rubber floor mats, repeatedly wetting the connector. This will result in corrosion of the connector, causing a current to flow between the terminals without tripping the circuit breaker.
Dealers will remove the unused connector and install a sealed heat shrink cap over the affected wires.
