Summary:
Hino is recalling certain model year 2005 through 2013 medium duty trucks, models NA6J, NB6J, NC6J, ND8J, NE8J, NJ8J, NF8J, and NV8J, manufactured from August 18, 2003, through November 16, 2011. Over time, the main B+ circuit from the battery to the starter could potentially short to ground due to wear that accumulates as a result of interference between the B+ circuit and its convoluted tubing sheath.

Consequence:
If the B+ circuit shorts to ground, it may lead to a fire.

Remedy:
Hino will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, January 15, 2013. Owners may contact Hino at 1-248-699-9390.
