Meritor recalled 15 14Xe ePowertrains part numbers A-3200A2653-657, A-3200D2656-478 due to potential safety risk.
The stator assembly wires may have been insufficiently crimped, causing high resistance, overheating, and preventing the high voltage system from starting.
A loss of power to the system may cause loss of motive power, increasing the risk of a crash.
In response to this, Meritor will notify owners, while dealers will replace the stator, free of charge.
There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
