The heater for the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve may short circuit. An electrical short can cause the PCV valve heater to overheat, increasing the risk of a fire while driving or, soon after driving when parked.
Solution: This recall supersedes and expands previous NHTSA recalls 17V-683 and 19V-273. Vehicles previously repaired under the prior recalls will need to come back for the new recall remedy. The remedy is currently being developed. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed April 25, 2022.
