Thread: Massive recall issued for defect that could cause truck to move when parked

  1. Default Massive recall issued for defect that could cause truck to move when parked





    Navistar has issued a recall for thousands of trucks due to a defect that could cause a parked truck to move, increasing the risk of a crash.Navistar recently announced a recall for certain 2019-2020 International MV and HV, 2018-2020 Workstar, and 2018-2019 Durastar vehicles equipped with feature codes 12VXT and 12VXU.
    The number of trucks impacted by the recall is 12,539.


    According to National Highway Traffic Safety (NHTSA) documents, the recalled trucks have a defect that could cause the truck to move when parked: “With the parking brake applied and the automatic transmission in the ‘Drive’ or ‘Reverse’ position, when the stationary PTO switch is engaged by the operator, the engine RPM will ramp up and may overcome the parking brake’s ability to hold the vehicle.” This movement could increase the risk of a crash.


    The recall is set to begin January 20, 2020. Navistar will notify truck owners and truck dealers and will correct the defect free of charge by updating the Engine Control Module to enable the PTO neutral interlock.
    Truck owners with questions about the recall can call Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 and reference recall number 19518.

    Make me wonder who would even consider buying an International after the Maxxforce ordeal. Hope no one here is affected.

    Hmmmm? So the driver has set the parking brake, engages the PTO and idles the engine up with the transmission in forward or reverse and then wonders why the truck starts to move. I believe the parking brakes once set would always hold the truck back. What am I missing here?
