Summary:
      Gillig LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Low Floor transit buses manufactured April 13, 2010, to June 12, 2015. Due to the routing of the grid heater electrical power cable, the cable may chafe against a fuel injector hard line.
Consequence:
      If the electrical power cable rubs against the injector fuel line, the cable may short circuit or the fuel line may leak fuel. Either possibility increases the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
      Gillig will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the grid heater power cable/hard injector fuel line for wear, and will properly route and support the grid heater power cable, free of charge. The recall began on July 17, 2015. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-800-735-1500.
