Chronology :

09/09/2022 A mirror adjuster failed on a customer vehicle with heavy smoke observed.

09/22/2022 The failed component was sent to the supplier of the adjuster (Safe Fleet) for inspection. GILLIG continued to monitor for other failures potentially similar to the one reported.

03/17/2023 Two (2) additional field failures were reported to GILLIG. The failed parts were sent to the supplier for further investigation.

06/30/2023 The protection fuse was determined to be a possible cause of the thermal damage experienced by the switch. It was proposed to lower the rating of the protection fuse from 5A to 1A.

From 06/30/2023 to 11/22/2023 while the supplier worked on a permanent corrective action, GILLIG initiated an internal warranty analysis to determine the vehicle population that may be potentially affected by the issue.

11/22/2023 GILLIG completed population analysis and identified a total of 3626 vehicles potentially affected by the defect.

11/27/2023 GILLIG’s Safety Committee decided to file a formal Safety recall to repair the vehicle population affected by the issue.
