More Than 2,000 Kenworth and Peterbilt Trucks Recalled
PACCAR is recalling more than 2,000 model year 2013-2014 Kenworth T680 and T880 trucks, and 2013-2014 Peterbilt 579 and 567 vehicles.
The Exterior Lights Self-Test switch is intended to be used when the vehicle is parked. If the switch is pressed while the vehicle is in motion, the Exterior Lights Self-Test switch will cause all exterior lighting to be extinguished.
An unexpected loss of lighting during vehicle operation may reduce the driver's ability to see other vehicles, pedestrians, or objects, as well as reduce the truck's visibility to other drivers or pedestrians, increasing the risk of crash.
PACCAR will notify the owners of all affected vehicles, and dealers will disable the Exterior Lights Self-Test software parameter and remove the Exterior Lights Self-Test switch and install a switch plug in its place. The services will be offered free of charge.
For more information on this recall, contact Kenworth at (425) 828-5000 or Peterbilt at (940) 591-4000.
