General Motors is recalling certain units of the Hummer H3 in Australia over an HVAC issue that could result in a fire. This is the same campaign that resulted in the recall of the Hummer H3 and H3T in the U.S. last week.
The defect: in affected vehicles, the wiring connection system for the cabin fan (HVAC fan) may output high heat under extended operational periods at high and medium blower speeds.
The hazards: excessive heat in the connector may lead to melting or pose a fire hazard, which may present a risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

The fix: GM-Holden will write to all affected customers to notify them of required action on behalf of the now-discontinued Hummer brand.
