On Tiguan vehicles with background lighting of the Panorama sun roof (PR No.: 3FJ) of a limited production period, a short circuit in the LED module with subsequent heating-up can occur because of humidity ingress into the LED module. This can lead to the failure of the background lighting and/or scorching damage/scorching smell. Under very unfavourable conditions a vehicle fire can occur.
