49 CFR Part 573 – DEFECT INFORMATION REPORT 19E009 – CERTAIN 2017-2018 VOYAGER BRAND VOM74MM MIRROR MONITORS HAVE THEIMAGE INVERT – REVERSE IMAGE DISPLAYED ON MONITOR
Pursuant to Part 573 of the Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Defect and Noncompliance Reports, ASA Electronics, LLC (“ASA”) submits the following information concerning a safety recall action that it is voluntarily initiating.
573.6 (c) (2) – Potentially Affected Mirror Monitors
Mirror Monitors potentially affected are revisions A, B, and C from 2017-18 VOM74MM Mirror Monitors produced by ASA from January 2017 to December 2018. The Serial Number (alphanumeric code) on the label can be used to identify the affected items. The first letter of the serial number of the affected products is “A”, “B”, or “C”.
The information for the supplier of the VOM74MM Mirror Monitor, that is the subject of this defect report, is provided below.
|Corporate Name of Supplier:||ASA Electronics, LLC.|
|2602 Marina Dr.|
Elkhart, IN 46514
|Supplier Phone Number:||(574) 264-3135|
|Point of Contact at Supplier:||Dan Stoltzfus, Julia Willis|
|Country of Origin for the component:||China|
573.6 (c) (3) – Estimated Population of Mirror Monitors Potentially Affected
Approximately 15,300 mirror monitors in the United States and federalized territories are potentially affected.
573.6 (c) (4) – Estimated Percentage of Affected Mirror Monitors with the Defect Condition
Potentially 100% (However, it takes specific conditions for the issue to occur)
573.6 (c) (5) – Description of the Defect
The monitor has factory default settings and user-defined default settings within the monitors software.
As the monitor powers up (takes a few seconds) at a specific time it loads the user defined settings. If the power up sequence is interrupted by a power drop at a precise time the monitor may not be able to load the user settings and will load the default settings which will reverse the image on the monitor. The user defined setting for image is “NORMAL”. The factory default setting for image is “MIRROR”. The monitor image will stay in “MIRROR” mode until the user selects “NORMAL” in the settings.
Other effects of the factory default settings being loaded is shown below.
- When the unit powers up using the factory default settings the mirror monitor Auto On will be OFF. The Monitor, if the factory default settings are loaded, has to be manually turned ON instead of coming on by itself.
- When the user manually turns ON the unit the factory default for volume will be at 50% instead of 0 (user-defined) which allows outside noise, which is a nuisance.
- At this point the default of the image is inverted or put into Mirror mode (Safety issue).
- This would all happen before the driver puts the vehicle in Drive (if they notice the monitor is actually turned OFF)
No related accidents, injuries, or fatalities have been reported to ASA. The first incident of a reverse image being displayed was confirmed with a unit on December 13th, 2018. Repair kits were available and in stock at ASA in February 2019. Instructions for installation on various chassis will be complete in March 2019.
573.6 (c) (8) – Service Program
ASA will work with vehicle manufacturers, distributors, and fleet owners to implement a field repair program. ASA will work with vehicle manufacturers and NHTSA to provide timely owner and purchaser notifications. The serial number of the mirror monitors and the VIN numbers of the repair units will be tracked by ASA.
573.6 (c) (11) – Recall Number
