Default Secondary Air Pump Recall- Possible Fire.

Recall - 2013 WRX STI.
The other day, I received a recall letter from Subaru North America.
I ended up calling the 800 number to inquire.
The Subaru representative mentioned that the 2nd air pump needs to be replaced under warranty. This is due to the fact that the secondary air pump might not shut off...thus causing a fire.
They also suggest that I park outside and not in the garage as it might turn on and cause a fire in the garage.

I'm not sure how wide spread this recall is- but I would call Subaru and they can look it up..they suggested that one can key enter the vin on the Subaru website to validate too.

I got a recall letter last week for my 2011 sti. Something about a possible relay failing causing the relay or pump to continue running. I thought the letter say they would just replace the relay.

at dealer now, it is a 2 part fix: mechanical (replace relay and if necessary replace air pump as well) and ECU update.

advisor asked if i was Accessport tuned because the ECU update could not be applied even if i reflashed to stock. i emailed Cobb and awaiting response.

any similar experience to fix this recall?

I got this recall for my 2012 Sti as well, so seems to be pretty widespread.

Were you tuned? Did they say anything or ask if you we're, just wondering I have to take mine in soon and I have never had to deal with anything other than an oil change or alignment at the dealer.
