Altec Industries is recalling 335 2015- and 2016-model year aerial devices and service body trucks equipped with certain JEMS 4A or JEMS 4E4 idle mitigation systems, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

A cable within the idle mitigation system (IMS) may have been improperly installed, possibly causing the cable to rub against an electrical component and short circuit, NHTSA said. A short circuit increases the risk of fire.

Altec dealers will replace and reroute the contactor cable within the IMS to fix the problem. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin May 10. Altec customer service can be reached at (205) 991-7733. Altec’s code for the recall is CSN 646.
