An electrical issue is prompting a recall from Nova Bus.

The bus manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Nova LFS Artic transit buses equipped with Allison transmissions. The main power cable within the energy guiding system (EGS) may have been incorrectly routed and, as a result, the cable may disconnect.

If the main power cable disconnects, there will be a loss of power that could disable the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

About 225 buses are included in the announcement.

Nova will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the main power cable, re-routing it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on March 28, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Nova customer service at (450) 472-6410.
