Polaris Industries voluntarily conducted a recall of its model year 2009 Ranger 700 EFI Crew and Ranger 700 EFI 6×6 UTVs, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

In cooperation with the CPSC, Polaris recalled about 3,800 UTVs because of a potential electrical short, which can lead to overheating in the rear tail light wiring harnesses, posing a fire hazard to consumers, reported the CPSC.

Polaris has received 46 reports of overheating in the vehicle’s tail light area, resulting in melting of plastic. In 22 of these reports, consumers reported small flames. No injuries have been reported.

The model and serial number identification decal is located under the front seat, on the right-side seat support.

The vehicles were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from December 2008-July for about $11,500.
