Isuzu Technical Center of America is recalling 4,352 model year 2018-2021 FTR and Chevrolet 6500XD trucks.
The ground cable connecting the starter motor to the vehicle frame may break at the starter-side eyelet, resulting in an engine no-crank or slow-crank condition, causing the vehicle not to start.
If the cable is broken and repeated attempts are made to start the vehicle, the starter may ground through the steel braiding of the power steering hose, allowing it to heat up and possibly rupture, increasing the risk of a fire.
What to do
Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ground cable and inspect and replace the power steering hose if damage exists free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2020.
Owners may contact Isuzu customer service at (866) 441-9638. Isuzu's number for this recall is V2004.
