Recall Summary: ON CERTAIN AMBULANCES EQUIPPED WITH THE "SMART DISPLAY" ELECTRICAL SYSTEM CONTAINING FIELD-EFFECT TRANSISTOR (FET) OUTPUT BOARDS, THE POWER DISTRIBUTION PANEL FOR THE SMART DISPLAY ARE EQUIPPED WITH TYPE 1 CIRCUIT PROTECTION.

AS THE BOARD COOLS DOWN, IT COMES BACK ON, ALLOWING THE BOARD TO CONTINUALLY CYCLE LEADING TO POSSIBLE FAILURE.
Hazard: THE BOARDS CAN POSSIBLY OVERHEAT OR MELT DOWN, WHICH COULD CAUSE A FIRE.
Remedy: DEALERS WILL INSTALL A NEW TRANSISTOR FET BOARD THAT CONTAINS TYPE 2 CIRCUIT PROTECTION FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 6, 2005. OWNERS MAY CONTACT ROAD RESCUE AT 1-800-328-3804.
