The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Chrysler is recalling certain 2022 Ram 1500, 2500 pickup trucks, and 3500 Cab Chassis vehicles with GVWR less than 10,000 lb. The radio software may prevent the rearview image from displaying. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, "Rear Visibility." A rearview camera that does not display an image reduces the driver's rear view, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 117,759 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2021-2023 FCCC Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley Electric Buses. A high voltage battery cable may not be properly connected, which can cause a loss of electrical power or a ground short circuit. A loss of electrical power can cause the bus to shutdown, increasing the risk of a crash. A ground short circuit can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 185 units are affected by the recall.
- Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2022 Transit vehicles. The Instrument Panel Cluster may not properly illuminate telltales or gauges and the speedometer and tachometer pointers. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard numbers 101, "Control and Displays," and 102, "Trans Shift Lever Seq/Starter Interlock/Trans Braking Effect," and 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems," and 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." Failure to illuminate the cluster display could render safety-related telltales and gauges unreadable, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 30,244 units are affected by the recall.
- Mack Trucks is recalling certain 2021-22 Granite, Anthem, LR, Pinnacle, and Terrapro tractor trailers. The steering gears may have been assembled incorrectly, which can cause the gear to fracture. A fractured steering gear can cause a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 6,023 units are affected by the recall.
- Paccar is recalling certain 2022 Kenworth T180, 2021-2023 Kenworth T280, 2022-2023 Kenworth T380, 2022-2023 Peterbilt 536, and 537 vehicles. Internal components of the transmission actuator may slip, causing the actuator to become miscalibrated. A miscalibrated actuator may cause the transmission to shift into an unexpected gear, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 402 units are affected by the recall.
