Blue Bird is recalling certain model year 2013 and 2014 Vision school buses manufactured from January 10, 2012, through November 01, 2012, and equipped with Ford 6.8L propane engines. The brake light switch mounting bracket may have caused the brake light switch to be incorrectly adjusted at installation and/or the brake light switch mounting bracket may deform when the driver allows the brake pedal to return forcibly. An incorrectly adjusted brake light switch or deformed brake light switch mounting bracket may cause the brake lights to illuminate continuously.
Improperly functioning brake lights could confuse following motorists and fail to warn them that the bus may be stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.
Blue Bird will notify owners, and dealers will install a new, redesigned brake light switch mounting bracket along with a new brake light switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on December 5, 2012. Owners may contact Blue Bird at 1-478-822-2242.
