Aston Martin The Americas is recalling 1,953 model year 2005-2009 DB9, and DBS vehicles.

The battery supply cable on these vehicles may become damaged when the driver seat is positioned in the full rearward location.

If the battery cable is damaged and then grounded, the short circuit can increase the risk of a fire.

What to do

Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the battery supply cable for damage, and install a routing block to keep the battery supply cable from being compressed by the seat, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin February 1, 2018.

Owners may contact Aston Martin customer service at 1-888-923-9988. Aston Martin's number for this recall is RA-18-0026.
