Summary:
      Spartan Motors, Inc. "Spartan" is recalling one model year 2006 Utilimaster vehicle manufactured on June 1, 2006 and equipped with a Fastec-brand door lock. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.
Consequence:
      If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the cargo area at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
      Spartan will notify the owner, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the lock cylinder, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on January 8, 2014. Owners may contact Utilimaster at 1-800-582-3454 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
