September 14, 2016

Emergency vehicles with faulty electronics are now subject to a recall from the REV Ambulance Group.

The manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2010-2016 Road Rescue Specialty Vehicle, Ultramedic, Promedic, Duramedic, Metromedic, and Transmedic emergency vehicles. These vehicles are equipped with certain Class 1 ES-Key power control modules manufactured by Hale Products. The affected power control modules may not provide sufficient circuit protection depending on their combination of software and installation, possibly resulting in a short circuit.

A short circuit may result in damage to components of the vehicle's electrical system, affecting their function such as causing a loss of headlights, increasing the risk of a crash. A short circuit may also increase the risk of a fire.

About 170 emergency vehicles are included in the recall.

REV will notify owners, and dealers will upgrade the software or retrofit fuses, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact REV customer service at (800) 628-8178 or Hale Products Customer Service Center by phone at (800) 533-3569 or by email at halecustomerservice@idexcorp.com.
