Improperly Installed Airbag Leads to Recall from Manufacturer
A potential manufacturing error has prompted a recall from an emergency vehicle company.
E-One Incorporated announced this week that it would be recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Typhoon, Cyclone II, and Quest emergency vehicles. The affected vehicles may have left the production facility with a harness for the front airbag system disconnected.
If the airbag harness is not connected to the airbag control system, the front airbag will not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
E-One is recalling 18 vehicles in connection with this defect.
The manufacturer will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the air bag harness, connecting it as necessary, and test the system for proper operation, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 9, 2015.
Owners with questions about the recall can contact E-One customer service at (800) 627-5050.
