Wheeled Coach Recalls 725 Ambulances

September 28, 2011

WASHINGTON – Wheeled Coach Industries is recalling 725 model-year 2004-2010 Ford E-350 Type II diesel ambulances because of a potential problem with the accessory power cable arising from corrosion, reported the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The ambulances covered in the recall were originally sold or are currently registered in Washington, D.C., and the following states: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri.

The problem is linked to a potential corrosion issue on the secondary battery terminal. As the secondary battery terminal corrodes, the Wheeled Coach accessory power cable is affected and the siren, warning lights and interior patient compartment lights could be intermittent or fail to operate.

Wheeled Coach will mail retrofit kits along with installation instructions to customers, or repairs can be performed by a service center free of charge. Ambulance owners can contact Wheeled Coach at (800) 628-8178.
