|Manufacturer Campaign Number: 13E-049|
|Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:ALTERNATOR/GENERATOR/REGULATOR|
|Potential Number Of Units Affected : 467|
Glaval Bus is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 Universal, Entourage, Concorde II, Titan, Titan II and Legacy transit buses manufactured June 1, 2010, through June 30, 2013, and equipped with a Ford 5.4L or 6.8L engine and a Trans/Air-brand air conditioner. In the affected vehicles, depending on the routing of the alternator harness, and the orientation of the heater hose spring clamp at the front of the intake manifold, the alternator harness may be pinched between the spring clamp and the air conditioner compressor mounting bracket.
The charging system may fail which could lead to the vehicle stalling while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the spring clamp could pierce both the positive and negative wires of the alternator harness creating a short circuit which could result in a fire.
Glaval Bus will notify owners, and Trans/Air dealers will inspect the vehicles, correct the clamp installation and repair and reroute the alternator harness, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on January 22, 2014. Customers may contact Glaval at 1-574-262-2212.
