Dear Polaris Snowmobile Owner: In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Polaris Industries Inc. is voluntarily recalling all 2009 IQ Widetrak snowmobiles equipped with an engine block heater.
This letter is to notify you that Polaris has determined that the power cord insulation could crack, potentially exposing the internal copper wires. Exposed wires may create an electrical shock hazard for anyone attempting to plug the power cord into a receptacle or to anyone that comes in contact with the vehicle when the power cord is plugged into a receptacle.
DO NOT USE YOUR SNOWMOBILE BLOCK OR BATTERY HEATER UNTIL DEALER INSPECTION OR REPLACEMENT HAS BEEN COMPLETED!
Please contact your authorized Polaris snowmobile dealer immediately to schedule a service visit for inspection and/or replacement. Your authorized Polaris snowmobile dealer has been issued Safety Bulletin S-09-02. The Safety Bulletin instructs your dealer to install a new block heater if yours is affected. This work will be performed at no charge to you and will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. At that time, your dealer will also verify any outstanding Technical Service Bulletins have been completed on your snowmobile.
This notice was mailed to you according to our most current registration information. If you no longer own this vehicle, or if some of the contact information (such as your address or name) in this notice is incorrect, please contact your local Polaris dealer to complete a change of ownership. If you need assistance with contacting a Polaris Dealer, please call 1-888-704-5290 or visit the Polaris web site at www.polarisindustries.com. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. Sincerely, Laurie Rengel Manager, Service Dealer Development & Warranty
