Freightliners recalled over running lights glitch

Jason Cannon April 1, 2013

Daimler Trucks North America is recalling nearly 46,000 Freightliner Cascadia trucks over a software glitch that could cause daytime running lights to shut off, the company said.

The problem affects all 2013 and 2014 model-year Cascadias produced from May 7, 2012, to March 2, 2013.

The turn signal lights also function as daytime running lights in the recalled units, and may not stay illuminated when the driver deactivates the turn signal.

DTNA told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it has not determined how it will fix the glitch, but will notify customers, dealers and distributors by May 15.
