Is the Recent Spike in Car Burning Incidents a Coincidence or a Sign of Negligence?

21

Reports of numerous cars mysteriously catching fire have become a concern for the community. After inquisition, the pivotal factor seems to be the installation of third party ‘Daytime running lamps’ in cars. In almost all the cases, people have described that the car caught fire while it was stationary and nobody was sitting inside.

The disappointed owners of these cars hastily blame the companies for selling them counterfeit products that malfunctioned and burst into flames.

Some, on the other hand, begin to speculate that perhaps the car manufacturers were not very thorough with the inspection of the car in terms of safety and accident prevention. However, before pointing fingers at either the establishments selling them the accessories or the cars, it is important for the car owners who face this misfortune to take in consideration as to who is actually responsible for installing such an accessory in their cars.

 

Not every automotive technician is proficient enough to carry out these installations and also ensure that his work will prevent the occurrence of such incidents.

Car owners are not only expected to choose their mechanic with diligence but also to keep in mind that if they want compensation for accidents of this type, they must invest in products that provide assistance in situations like these. Slight negligence can cause great issues, hence; it is advisable to look into these matters beforehand as a car costs a fortune.

By trying to save money on installation, car owners put themselves in precarious positions. Almost every mechanic can carry out a basic installation or a fix but the idea is to make sure that the arrangement stands the test of time whilst being in use. By going the extra mile, car owners can ascertain that they are not put in a dissatisfying position where they feel helpless and regretful. It is both in the best interest of the car owners and the general public.

  1. installing cheaply built HID ballast units without fused supply lines is a big welcome sign for disaster.

    The usual buyer in Pakistan only looks at his/her car as "lush pash shape" - zara dekorashan shaap pe HID wali batti aur DRL wali batti lagwate hain.

    They go to shop, bargain like hell, and ask for cheapest install - dont care about logic, safe practice or any other finer detail because "shut that noise man" - dont need any of that when all that matters is HID and "show shaa"

    you get what you pay for, twist tape nitto joints on any circuit under the bonnet of a car is going to cause trouble - almost guaranteed a fire if that is not fused. This is not new - you guys only see it now due to media like this website. It was a usual sight when I lived there - at average I would see one car every week with a burnt front due to "aftermarket stupid installations"

  2. you dont know Pakistani mindset then.

    they will buy a 2.8 million car and keep the QC stickers on because "jenyan" and "resale" - they will also do a few things immediately which are usually.

    1 - seat covers to protect the original cheap fabric
    2 - plastic vinyl on doors to protect the cheap viny
    3 - stereo to impress freinds.

    Everything will be bargained starting from 10% of asking price.

    people buying 2.8 million cars doesnt mean they are not cheapskates.

  3. exactly right, customer being a loser choosing ultra cheap "shiny package HID" that comes with a retarded spec wiring diagram and wires thinner than hair strands - is their own fault.

    What is the need for such add ons? and if such add ons are requested why not pay for quality install work.

  4. The average new car owner in Pakistan likes to announce their presence on the road with the Nouveau Riche coming through outrageously, in both the look of their cars and their driving behavior (dangerous and discourteous). They have a desperate need to be noticed with all the frills, whistles, badges & stickers, aftermarket LEDs and flashing lights (YUKH !!). Even the standard high quality alloy wheels are swapped for cheap and nasty after market wheels. What do they expect ? Even though I am not a great fan of our locally assembled trash cans on wheels fancifully called cars, I still do think the local assemblers are not the primary cause of such fires. If they were, surely there will be a mass recall ordered by the Japanese. Sorry, you mess with electrics then there goes your warranty.

  5. so now the octane number of gasoline and ambient temperature are causing fires? Speaking of understanding, I ran a workshop in pk - not a footpath one either.. and on average one car per week being burnt by useless electric add ons was called for;.(including relays for horns to be louder, same concept, no fuse on wire to battery positive and when it direct shorts to ground - it becomes a nice and pretty looking ignition fuse. add some flamable material around it and fan it with some fresh air - and your car becomes a roast pit in a few minutes.

    cue 25 minutes - some social media would have a post of "local cars are shit"
