The amount of extinguished sand in the fuse of the high-voltage system is not sufficient in the event of a short circuit to the high-voltage safety system. This may cause it to burst, increasing the risk of injuries. Furthermore, the blown fuse can interrupt the electrical flow of current leading to a voltage drop inside the vehicle, increasing the risk of fire.
