November 20, 2020 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 20V721000

Chassis Harness/Coolant Return Hose Could Chafe

Leaking engine coolant and/or a damaged wire harness may result in a no-start condition, an engine stall, or an electrical short. These scenarios increase the risk of a crash or fire.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 20V721

Manufacturer Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc.

Components ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

Potential Number of Units Affected 46

 

Summary

Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc. (Isuzu) is recalling certain 2020 NPR-HD (Crew Cab) and Chevrolet 4500 (Crew Cab) vehicles equipped with 6.6L gasoline engines. The chassis harness and the coolant return hose from the radiator to the reservoir (surge hose) may chafe. Continued chafing could cause wear in the harness and/or hose, ultimately causing a hole in the hose with the potential for engine coolant to leak and/or causing damage to the harness with the potential for a short circuit.

 

Remedy

Isuzu and Chevrolet will notify their respective vehicle owners and dealers of this recall, and specifically of the need to adjust the positive cable in subject vehicles, and owners will be informed that the recall repairs will be done free of charge. The recall began December 11, 2020. For additional information, Isuzu owners may contact Isuzu Customer Relations at 1-866-441-9638 and Chevrolet owners may contact the GM Medium Duty Truck assistance line at 1-800-862-4389. Isuzu’s number for this recall is V2006.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

 

Check if your Isuzu Truck has a Recall

 


CONDITION

Isuzu Motors Limited has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2020MY N-Series crew cab vehicles with gasoline engines 6.6 L8T. In the affected vehicles, the chassis harness and the coolant return hose from the radiator to the reservoir (surge hose) are located near the edge of the cab floor panel. During normal driving, the harness and/or hose could potentially chafe from contact with the cab floor panel. Continued chafing could cause wear in the harness and/or hose, ultimately causing a hole in the hose with the potential for engine coolant to leak and/or causing damage to the harness with the potential for a short circuit. Leaking engine coolant and/or a damaged wire harness may result in a no-start condition, engine stall, or thermal event, increasing the risk of a crash or fire.

 

CORRECTION

Isuzu dealers will install additional retention parts and an edge protector to ensure adequate clearance and protection. This service will be performed free of charge.

 

PARTS

Part Number Description Quantity
5-09707-030-1 Cable Water, Hose, Harness Band 1
5-09700-321-0 Frame Harness Clip 1
8-97327-172-0 Protector 1

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE

1. Shift vehicle to park, turn off engine, set parking brake, and block rear wheels.

2. Remove the rear engine cover. (See Figure 1.) The work will be performed in the area indicated.

3. On the driver’s side of the area exposed by the removal of the rear engine cover, locate where the coolant overflow surge hose is attached to the bracket with a band clamp just above the two harness connectors. (See Figure 2.)

4. Use your fingers to depress the two tabs (See Figure 3) on the clip attaching the coolant surge hose band clamp clip on the back side of the bracket. Disengage the clip from the bracket.

 

NOTE: Do NOT remove the band clamp from around the coolant surge hose.

 

5. Relocate the coolant surge hose to behind the bracket and rotate the band clamp to install the clip into same hole in the bracket, but from the back side. (See Figure 4.) Ensure that both tabs on the band clamp clip fully engage into the bracket.

6. Push the new protector onto the rear of the bracket between the two connectors as shown in Figure 5.

7. Route the harness going to the black connector as shown in Figure 6 and install the new frame harness clip in the hole of the cab mount bracket to secure the harness. Bend the tabs of the new frame harness clip outward on the back side of the cab mounting bracket. (See Figure 7.)

8. Locate the one existing frame harness clip securing the coolant surge hose to the body mount bracket. (See Figure 8.) Relocate the coolant surge hose and the frame harness clip to the new location as shown in Figures 8 and 9. Ensure that both tabs are properly bent outwards on the back side of the body mounting bracket.

9. Use the new harness band to secure the surge hose to the harness just below the newly added frame harness clip. (See Figure 10.)

10. Install the rear engine cover.
