Supreme Corporation "Supreme" is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 Startrans Trolley, Sentinel, Senator HD, Senator, Candidate, C2, S2, PS2, and President transit buses equipped with Ricon manufactured wheelchair lifts which have an optional armored pendant cable.

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.
Ricon will be conducting this recall on behalf of Supreme. Ricon will notify the affected owners and will provide a supplemental cover kit and instructions, free of charge. The recall began on March 8, 2013. Owners may contact Supreme at 1-800-642-4889 or Ricon at 1-818-267-3000.
