Pierce Manufacturing has announced a recall for emergency vehicles with faulty electronics.

The company is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Enforcer and Saber emergency vehicles. The clamps on the heater hose may have been improperly installed, allowing engine coolant to leak into the passenger compartment.

If coolant leaks into the passenger compartment, it may contact electrical components, causing a short circuit and a loss of function of features controlled by those circuits. This could lead to a loss of power to the vehicle, which may result in a stall and increase the risk of a crash. The hot coolant may also contact occupants and possibly cause burn injuries.

About 270 vehicles are potentially affected by this issue.

Pierce will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the hose clamp installation. Any improperly installed clamps will be corrected free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Pierce customer service at (888) 974-3723.
