Fontaine Modification is recalling 3,571 Freightliner M2 trucks modified to have dual steering to fix brake lights that may not illuminate, according to federal records.
Fontaine reported the recall of trucks from model years covering 2006 to 2015 to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The trucks were manufactured between Jan. 2, 2006 and Jan. 23.
Brake lights of the affected vehicles will not illuminate if the primary brake air supply is depleted below 6 psi. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, number 121, "Air Brake Systems," according to NHTSA.
Fontaine will notify owners, and dealers will install a repair kit to resolve the issue. The recall is expected to begin May 18. Owners may contact Fontaine customer service at (800) 366-8246.
