Almost 10,000 Great Wall V200 utes have been recalled due to a wiring fault.

The Australian importer of Great Wall Motors vehicles, Ateco Automotive, has issued a recall alert for owners of its V200 ute.

The recall outlines an issue with the vehicle's internal wiring harness, which can wear through its protective sleeve if it comes in contact with the radiator.

If this occurs, the Great Wall V200 ute's battery can be prematurely drained.

According to the official recall notice, "The defect may cause an earthing point preventing the wiring system from functioning correctly, resulting in the alternator dash light coming on or a flat battery.

"In extreme cases the wiring harness may melt internally," reads the recall notice.

In total 9134 vehicles that were sold across Australia are affected by the possible fault.

All affected owners will get a letter in the mail notifying them of the problem. It advises them to get in contact with their Great Wall Motors dealership in order to have their vehicle inspected.
