Fairplay Electric Cars to Issue Recall

February 02, 2011

WASHINGTON - Fairplay Electric Cars is recalling more than 1,600 model-year 2010 and 2011 EVE LVS electric low-speed vehicles manufactured from July 31, 2009 through Dec. 27, 2010, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

A fuse specified to be in the 12V accessory circuit was not built into the wiring harness. The fuse value on the input to the voltage reducer was too large to prevent possible damage. 

There was no fuse inserted in the 12-volt circuit. Without this fuse for protection, a short in any portion of the 12V wiring can melt wire insulation and pose a fire risk, NHTSA said. 

Fairplay will notify owners of the recall, and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. This safety recall is expected to get under way around Feb. 17. 

Vehicle owners can reach Fairplay at (866) 557-0342.
