Aston Martin has issued a recall for a number of vehicles in its DBS and Vanquish lines, over fears a battery cable may be damaged by the seat runners.

The recall affects examples of the DBS and Vanquish built between 16 September 2010 and 17 February 2016.

The British car maker reports that if the driver’s seat is extended to its fully rearward position, a battery supply cable may become compressed by the seat runner, causing it to overheat.

If the battery cable is continuously compressed, the insulation on the cable may become damaged, leading to a short circuit between the cable and the runner causing a potential fire risk.

Affected vehicles fall into a VIN range of SCFXXXXXXX02484 and SCFXXXXXXX02757.

Contact with owners of affected vehicles will be managed via the national Aston Martin dealer network and customers will be advised to contact the seller or nearest dealer to arrange to have the issue resolved.
