The recall notice advises that the wiring harness of the SRS electronic control unit could become severed if the vehicle is in a severe collision.

What are the hazards?

If the SRS electronic control unit is severed in a collision it may stop the airbag deployment signals from being transferred to the modules.

In the worst case scenario the airbag may not deploy, posing a greater risk of injury to the vehicle occupant in an accident.

What should owners do?

Affected owners will be contacted directly and requested to contact an authorised FUSO dealership for an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
