Recall Summary: Diamond Coach Corporation (Diamond) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 VIP and PT 2000, 2200, 2500, 2800, 3200, and 3201 transit buses manufactured January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2011, and equipped with certain Ricon model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, S5510 wheelchair lifts. The affected lifts are equipped with folding link arms that may have pivot holes that are too big, allowing the bearings to move out of position.
Hazard: If the bearings move out of position, the stowed platform may have excessive movement resulting in failure of the platform mounting. This failure could cause the wheel chair lift platform to fall out of the vehicle when the doors are opened, increasing the risk of injury for the lift operator.
Remedy: Diamond will notify owners, and owners will inspect the link arms for damage or for displaced bearings. The platform will be inspected for cracks. Any damaged parts will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2015. Owners may contact Diamond customer service at 1-620-795-2191, or Ricon Customer Service at 1-800-322-2884. Note: These buses and wheelchair lifts were subject to a similar recall in 2014. All vehicles that received that recall remedy are still affected by this recall as well.
Additional Info: 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.

Recall Summary: Diamond Coach Corporation (Diamond) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 VIP and PT 2000, 2200, 2500, 2800, 3200, and 3201 transit buses manufactured January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2011, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.
Hazard: If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Remedy: Diamond will notify owners to take buses to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2014. Owners may contact Diamond customer service at 1-800-442-4645 Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.

2010-03-18 (Published by NHTSA on 2010-03-18)
Recall Summary: DIAMOND COACH HAS NOTIFIED NHTSA ABOUT A DEFECT IN CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007-2009 VIP COACHES FITTED WITH RICON PUBLIC USE LIFTS MANUFACTURED BETWEEN DECEMBER 1, 2007 TO DECEMBER 18, 2009. THE RESTRAINT BELT ON THESE LIFTS WAS DESIGNED TO PREVENT THE LIFT FROM MOVING, UNLESS THE TONGUE OF THE BELT IS FULLY ENGAGED AND LATCHED IN THE BUCKLE. RICON HAS DISCOVERED, HOWEVER, THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE OPERATOR TO INSERT THE BELT TONGUE INTO THE BUCKLE WITHOUT FULLY ENGAGING THE LATCHING MECHANISM. IN THIS CASE, THE RESTRAINT BELT WOULD APPEAR TO BE LATCHED, AND THE OPERATOR COULD RUN THE LIFT. IF THE RESTRAINT BELT TONGUE IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED INTO THE RESTRAINT BELT BUCKLE, AND LATCHED, THE LIFT MAY OPERATE WITH AN OCCUPANT ON THE PLATFORM.
Hazard: THE USER OF THE LIFT COULD BE INJURED SHOULD THE LIFT MOVE WITHOUT THE RESTRAINT BELT PROPERLY BUCKLED.
Remedy: DIAMOND COACH IS WORKING WITH RICON AND RICON WILL BE HANDLING THE REMEDY FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. PLEASE SEE RICON'S DEFECT REPORT 09E-060. RICON WILL PROVIDE CUSTOMERS WITH A WARNING DECAL AND A DVD-BASED TRAINING AID. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON MARCH 15, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT RICON AT 1-818-267-3000 OR DIAMOND COACH AT 1-800-442-4645.
Additional Info: DIAMOND COACH RECALL NO. RIC-10-2.OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

2010-03-17 (Published by NHTSA on 2010-03-17)
Recall Summary: DIAMOND COACH HAS NOTIFIED NHTSA ABOUT A DEFECT IN CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009 VIP MODEL COACHES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN MAY 1 AND DECEMBER 1, 2009, EQUIPPED WITH CERTAIN RICON S SERIES AND K SERIES L-MODEL WHEELCHAIR LIFTS, DUE TO A PROBLEM IN THE SOFTWARE THAT CONTROLS THE LIFT'S "UP" FUNCTION. IF THE "UP" SWITCH IS RELEASED BEFORE THE FLOOR LEVEL LIMIT SWITCH IS ACTIVATED, THE LIFT MAY CONTINUE ITS UPWARD TRAVEL FOR APPROXIMATELY 1 SECOND BEFORE STOPPING. THE CONTINUED UPWARD TRAVEL MAY OVERRUN THE FLOOR LEVEL CUT OFF POINT.
Hazard: WHEN THE PLATFORM OVERRUNS THE VEHICLE FLOOR LEVEL AND STOPS AT AN ANGLE FROM 15-20 DEGREES, IT IS POSSIBLE FOR A PERSON IN A WHEELCHAIR TO TIP OVER AND FOR SOMEONE STANDING ON THE PLATFORM TO FALL, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN INJURIES.
Remedy: DIAMOND COACH WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND THE REPAIRS WILL BE PERFORMED BY AUTHORIZED RICON DEALERS FREE OF CHARGE. CURRENTLY RICON IS DEVELOPING A SOFTWARE SOLUTION AND IS NOT AVAILABLE. UNTIL THE SOFTWARE SOLUTION IS AVAILABLE, RICON WILL PROVIDE OWNERS WITH A BULLETIN OUTLINING PROPER WHEELCHAIR LIFT OPERATION AND WILL SHIP OWNERS A DVD-BASED TRAINING AID TO PROMOTE PROPER LIFT OPERATION AT NO COST. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON MARCH 15, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT RICON AT 1-818-267-3000 OR DIAMOND COACH AT 1-800-442-4645.
Additional Info: OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

2009-06-08 (Published by NHTSA on 2009-06-08)
Recall Summary: DIAMOND COACH IS RECALLING 10 MODEL YEAR 2008 AND 2009 VIP MOTOR COACHES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN NOVEMBER 25, 2008 AND MARCH 23, 2009, EQUIPPED WITH CARRIER K410 ROOFTOP MOUNTED CONDENSERS. THE COVER OF THE CONDENSER ASSEMBLY MAY INTERFERE WITH THE COIL HEADER WHEN THE COVER IS PLACED ON THE UNIT ASSEMBLY. THE POTENTIAL INTERFERENCE PREVENTS THE COVER FROM RESTING ON THE UNIT MOUNTING SURFACE, CREATING A GAP BETWEEN THE COVER AND UNIT ASSEMBLY.
Hazard: THIS CONDITION WILL NOT PERMIT THE COVER FASTENERS TO SECURELY CLAMP THE COVER TO THE UNIT ASSEMBLY, WHICH MAY RESULT IN THE COVER DISLOCATING FROM THE UNIT DURING OPERATION, POSSIBLY CAUSING A CRASH OR CAUSE INJURY TO PEDESTRIANS.
Remedy: DIAMOND COACH WILL REPAIR THE COACHES FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON JUNE 11, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT DIAMOND COACH TOLL-FREE AT 1-800-673-2431 EXT. 21.
