A recall announced recently by Paccar affects more than 11,000 Kenworth tractors.

Paccar’s recall, affecting approximately 11,429 vehicles, stems from engine harnesses for trucks equipped with ISX15 engines that may have been manufactured without check engine light and stop engine light circuits, which could prevent the driver from being warned of a serious engine problem. Affected trucks, manufactured between July 23, 2015, and Aug. 17, 2018, include:

  • 2016-2019 Kenworth C500
  • 2016-2019 Kenworth T660
  • 2016-2019 Kenworth T800
  • 2016-2019 Kenworth W900

Paccar will begin notifying owners on Oct. 19, and dealers will inspect or test the ISX15 engine harness and install an overlay jumper harness to supply the missing circuits. Owners can contact Paccar customer service at 1-918-259-3258 with recall number 18KWE. NHTSA’s recall number is 18V-555.

And why would Paccar wait another month before notifying the customers of a 3 year old problem? Sounds like they could be in some trouble if people burnt their engines down because of the lack of dummy lights. 

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.
