WESTERN STAR 4784, Model years 2007-2017
Daimler Trucks North America have notified Penske Commercial Vehicles of a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety, applicable to specific Western Star models manufactured March 27, 2007, through November 21, 2017.
On certain vehicles, after several hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with a light application of the brake pedal. Brake lights not illuminating when the service brakes are applied would not signal to other motorists the intent of the driver to slow down, leading to an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
Please contact your local authorised dealer to arrange to have your vehicle(s) modified. The recall will take less than 30 minutes to complete and will be preformed at no charge to you. When you contact your Western star dealer, refer to campaign number FL756-B
