Number Involved: 957

Dates of Manufacture: March - December 2000

Defect: On heavy duty trucks and bus chassis equipped with hydraulic brakes and automatic transmissions, misalignment of the brake pedal can cause delayed brake light activation during light braking applications. If the brake lights do not activate properly, other drivers would not be aware of the brake application, which could lead to a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will install a new brake pedal. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Feb. 19, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact International at 1-800-448-7825.

Number Involved: 2,855

Dates of Manufacture: October 1996 - November 2000

Defect: On heavy duty trucks equipped with Haldex automatic slack adjusters and long stroke brake chambers with Dana brakes, the automatic slack adjuster anchor brackets can fail due to fatigue fracture and completely separate, causing the slack adjusters to function as manual slack adjusters. If the support bracket for an automatic slack adjuster fails, the brakes at that wheel end will not automatically adjust. As the brake linings wear, the vehicle will have reduced braking capacity, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will install a new bracket on each suspect slack adjuster. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Feb. 22, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact International at 1-800-448-7825.
