Volkswagen has issued a global recall for 800,000 of its Tiguan models to replace a problematic fuse that can cause the cars' lights to fail.

The German automaker said Thursday the replacement should take only minutes and concerns vehicles built from early 2008 into mid-2011.

VW is voluntarily recalling Tiguan models with seven-speed dual-clutch gearboxes. The company said these cars can have electric malfunctions in hot, humid climates if synthetic gearbox oil is used.
