Glaval Bus "Glaval" is recalling certain model year 2007-2012 Universal, Primetime, Sport, Concorde, Titan, Titan II, Entourage and Apollo transit buses manufactured January 1, 2007, through December 3, 2012, and equipped with certain Ricon S-series and K-series wheelchair lifts, with an optional armored pendant cable. The armored cable may be positioned such that it does not clear the wheelchair lift.
If the cable does not clear the wheel chair lift it may contact the power lug and if it does not have a nonconductive cover, or it has an improperly installed non-conductive cover, then a short circuit may occur that could result in a fire.
Glaval will notify owners, and Ricon will send owners a supplemental cover kit and instructions, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2014. Owners may contact Glaval customer service at 1-800-445-2824 or Ricon Customer Service at 1-800-322-2884 or by e-mail at recall.admin"wabtec.com.
