"Due to an installation defect, the internal fuse box wiring harness may become loose," the Department's recall notice warned.

"If this occurs, the instrument cluster may fail to illuminate, internal, external lamps may switch off, and the vehicle may experience a sudden loss of motive power whilst driving."

However, they noted, even in the event of a failure the driver would still be able to steer and brake.

"A sudden loss of motive power and reduced or poor visibility whilst driving could increase the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users," the notice said.

Audi is reaching out to contact owners of cars caught in the recall. Owners are asked to arrange with their nearest authorised Audi dealership to have the repair work carried out, free of charge.
