Isuzu Technical Center of America is recalling 46 model year 2020 Isuzu NPR-HD Gas and Chevrolet 4500 (Crew Cab) trucks with 6.6L gasoline engines.
The positive cable connecting the battery to the starter may be too long, and may have been routed too close to the right-side exhaust pipe.
Over time, heat from the exhaust pipe may cause the conduit and insulation to deteriorate, exposing the wires, possibly causing a short circuit which could result in a no-start condition or a fire.
What to do
Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will draw the cable slack away from the exhaust pipe free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 28, 2020.
Owners may contact Isuzu customer service at (866) 441-9638. Isuzu's number for this recall is V2005.
