Kia is recalling about 86,900 model year 2014 Kia Forte vehicles because the cooling fan resistor may overheat and melt.
If this occurs, there is an increased risk of a vehicle fire.
Kia will notify owners affected by the recalled.
For vehicles produced from Dec. 5, 2012 to Jan. 27, 2014, dealers will replace the cooling fan resistor and multi-fuse unit. For vehicles produced from Jan. 28 2014 to April 17, 2014, dealers will replace the multi-fuse unit only.
Vehicles with a 1.8L engine will also have the engine control unit software updated.
