A shipping manufacturer is issuing a recall for trucks due to an electrical error.

Kalmar Solutions is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Ottawa T2 trucks. The affected vehicles are equipped with a chassis power board that is not protected from moisture. Additionally, the bolts that mount the chassis power board may rub against the circuit board and cause an electrical short.

Exposure to moisture or rubbing from mounting bolts may result in an electrical short which can increase the risk of a fire.

The manufacturer has not yet determined how many vehicles are impacted by this defect.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Kalmar customer service at (785) 229-6341.
