Issue

Issue: On certain school buses, the alternator power cable connection may not have been properly tightened. As a result, the power cable could loosen or separate from the alternator. If this happens, there could be electrical arcing (sparks). Safety Risk: Electrical arcing could damage surrounding material and increase the risk of a fire. Corrective Actions: Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your bus to a DTNA authorized service facility to inspect and tighten the alternator power cable connection, as necessary.
