Fire Suppression System May Not Discharge

If the fire suppression system does not work as intended, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a fire.

 

Summary

New Flyer of America, Inc. (New Flyer) is recalling certain 2015-2017 New Flyer XD40 and XN60, 2015 XD60 and XDE40 and 2013-2017 XN40 vehicles, equipped with certain Kidde Technologies, Inc. (KTI) KDS-25 fire extinguishers as part of the optional fire suppression system. The actuator of the extinguisher may not function properly, preventing the fire extinguisher from discharging the fire suppression agent in the event of a fire.

 

Remedy

New Flyer has notified owners, and KTI will inspect the fire suppression systems and replace the electrical piston actuators, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on November 29, 2018. Owners may contact New Flyer customer service at 1-204-224-6706. New Flyer’s number for this recall is R18-020.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
