Indian Recall 11V343000

NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
11V343000 Exterior Lighting: Headlights: Switch Indian Motorcycle Company 06/24/2011 699
Defect Summary
Polaris is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Indian motorcycles for the body control module (BCM) which can cause the headlight to turn off in some circumstances. If the headlight switch is slowly moved from one position to another (high beam to low beam or low beam to high beam), both beams may be on momentarily and the BCM interprets this as an overload condition.
Consequence Summary
The BCM turns off the headlight until the next time that the key is turned on. The unexpected loss of headlight function could impair a driver’s visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will replace the BCM free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 2011. Owners may contact Polaris at 1-651-408-7579.
