Recalls for 2018 Isuzu

2018 ISUZU NPR
NHTSA Campaign ID:SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:SWITCHES:BRAKE LIGHT
Manufacturer:Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates:10/30/2017 - 01/16/2018
Potential Units Affected:80

Defect Description:

Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc. (Isuzu) is recalling certain 2018 Isuzu NPR and 2019 Isuzu NPR-HD and NPR-XD vehicles. These vehicles have a brake switch and nylon retainer that may not have been properly secured into the steel brake pedal assembly bracket.

Consequence:

If the brake switch and nylon retainer are not properly secured, the switch can detach from the bracket causing the brake lights to illuminate whether or not brake pedal is depressed, the shift interlock will not operate and the accelerator pedal input will be disabled resulting in the inability to accelerate. These conditions can increase the risk of a crash.

Action:

Isuzu has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the seating of the retainer, and re-seat the retainer clip or replace the retainer clip, if necessary, free of charge. The recall began on April 24, 2018. Owners may contact Isuzu customer service at 1-866-441-9638. Isuzu's number for this recall is V1801.

NHTSA Campaign ID:EQUIPMENT
Manufacturer:Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc.
