LED Sign Problem Prompts Orion Bus Recall

October 28, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Daimler Buses of North America is recalling 368 MY 2002-2009 Orion transit buses equipped with Luminator Horizon LED side destination signs. 

The connector board can corrode if moisture accumulates under the connector and causes a short circuit. This can lead to smoke or fire, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. 

The necessary repairs will be made by Luminator free of charge. The safety recall will get underway in November. 

Bus owners can reach Luminator at (972) 516-3033 and Orion at (800) 716-7466.
