Daimler Trucks Recalls More That 42,000 Freightliner Cascadia Tractors
Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling more than 42,000 model year 2013-2014 Freightliner Cascadia tractors equipped with a SAMCAB software version 6.2.
On vehicles configured to have the turn signals operate as Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and the 'Turn-Tip' turn signal function activated, the DRLs may not illuminate properly after using the 'Turn-Tip' function while driving.
Failure of the DRLs to illuminate reduces visibility to other drivers and increases the risk of a vehicle crash.
The Freightliner Cascadia tractors affected by this recall were manufactured from May 7, 2012 through March 2, 2013.
The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. For further information, contact Daimler Trucks North America toll-free at 800-547-0712.
