Report Receipt Date: July 22, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V457000
Potential Number of Units Affected: 334
All Products Associated with this Recall: 2016 Kenworth T440, 2016 Kenworth T470, 2016 Kenworth T660, 2016 Kenworth T680, 2016 Kenworth T800, 2016 Kenworth T880, 2016 Kenworth W900
Manufacturer: PACCAR Incorporated
SUMMARY: PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain model year 2016 Kenworth T440, T470, T660, T680, T800, T880, and W900 trucks manufactured February 16, 2015, to March 9, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with an SR-7 spring brake valve assembly that may have had the primary and secondary service brake applications installed in reverse. In the event of a failure in the primary or secondary circuit, the redundant circuit would not provide adequate service brake functionality. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 121, "Air Brake Systems."
CONSEQUENCE: A loss of braking ability would increase the risk of a crash.
REMEDY: Kenworth will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and correct the air line installations as required, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 17, 2015. Owners may contact Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000. PACCAR's number for this recall is 15KWK.
NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
