Re: Ignition Switch Connector and Ignition Switch Harness Routing
Dear Can-Am On-Road® Dealer / Distributor,
This notice is being sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Act and other applicable laws. Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. and BRP US Inc. (“BRP“) have decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain Can-Am SpyderTM Roadster models and are conducting a voluntary safety recall of certain Can-Am Spyder Roadster models as specified in the attached Safety Campaign Bulletin.
Which models are involved?
2010 RTSM5 and SE5.
What is the potential problem?
The connector on the key switch harness may not be locked and the ignition switch harness may be routed too tight. In some situations, the connector may unplug. If this occurs, the vehicle may stall without warning and could potentially cause a crash.
To confirm that your VIN (Vehicle identification Number) is affected, contact your authorized Can-Am On-Road dealer or BRP at 1-888-272-9222 between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Eastern time 7 days a week.
