The buses are equipped with a Ricon manufactured wheelchair lift which has an optional armored pendant cable. The cable may have been installed such that it doesn't clear the wheelchair lift and without a protective cover, or a misinstalled protective cover.
      The cable may contact the power lug at the base of the wheel chair lift causing a short circuit that could result in a fire.
      Glaval Bus will notify owners and direct them to contact Ricon. Ricon will provide a supplemental cover kit and instructions, free of charge. The recall campaign began on January 23, 2013. Owners may contact Glaval Bus at 1-574-262-2212 or Ricon at 1-818-267-3000.
