According to news sources, a recall has been issued for about 490 units of certain New Flyer vehicle models after the company said that the electrical system of the instrument panel could potentially fail to illuminate the Check Engine light indicator, thereby increasing the risk of crash.
The recall was issued for vehicle models 2010-2011 XD35, 2010 XD40, 2010-2011 XDE35, 2009-2012 XDE40, 2011 XN40. The company, New Flyer Industries Ltd, announced the voluntary recall due to the Check Engine lamp in the dash potentially not illuminating when the instrument panel receives multiple error messages. The problem can result in an increased risk of crashing since it can cause the engine to shut down while the vehicle is still in motion.
