Issue

On certain school buses, the chassis mounted battery box support brackets may develop cracks over time. If this occurs, the battery box brackets could fail, allowing the battery box to separate from the chassis and become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will remove the braces on all units, add reinforcements or replace the front and rear brackets on some units with new higher strength steel, based on the matrix in the instructions.
