With an improperly wired circuit breaker, maintenance personnel could be unaware that the lift gate system is still energized, increasing the risk of personal injury.

Defect Corrective Action

Spartan will notify owners, and dealers will move and properly install the push-to-trip breaker on the driver's side of the vehicle, free of charge. The recall began on June 8, 2016. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1-800-543-5008. Spartan's number for this recall is 16013.

Defect Description

Spartan Motors USA (Spartan) is recalling certain 1991-2018 Utilimaster Aeromaster and Walk-In Vans. These vehicles were manufactured with front seat belts that do not have an emergency locking seat belt retractor or automatic locking seat belt retractor. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Defect Consequence

Without retractors, the seat belts may not accommodate different size occupants, therefore the occupants may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Defect Corrective Action

Spartan will notify owners and will install seat belts with retractors, free of charge. The recall began on August 6, 2018. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1-800-582-3454. Spartan's number for this recall is 18019.

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.
