The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter vans (platform 970 (VS30)), equipped with swivel seats. The wiring harnesses for the front seats may have been routed incorrectly and could become jammed and damaged in the swivel seat frames. If the wiring harness is damaged, the side airbag within the seat may deploy inadvertently or not deploy as designed in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. NHTSA says potentially 11,013 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2014-2017 F-150 pickup trucks equipped with 3.5L Ecoboost engines. The brake master cylinder may leak brake fluid into the brake booster. A loss of brake fluid may result in a change in brake pedal travel and feel, increased pedal effort and reduced front brake function, possibly requiring greater effort and distance to stop the vehicle. These conditions can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 292,311 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- General Motors is recalling certain 2019-2020 Chevrolet 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD medium-duty trucks. If the vehicle’s body control module loses communication with the vehicle’s electronic brake control module (EBCM), the EBCM software programming may not illuminate the vehicle’s ABS malfunction indicator light. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Number 105, “Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems.” If a driver is unaware that the ABS system is malfunctioning, there may be an increased risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 12,200 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- General Motors is recalling certain 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 vehicles previously recalled under 20V-142. The hood-latch striker wires on replacement hoods installed for Safety Recall 20V-142 may not have been heat-treated properly, possibly causing them to fracture. If a striker wire fractures, the hood may open unexpectedly while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 574 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Lion Electric Company is recalling certain 2012-2020 Lion C and Lion 360 hybrid electric school buses. The driver’s seat belt anchor may have been attached with incorrect hardware, possibly causing the seat belt to not be anchored properly. In the event of a crash, a seat belt that is not be properly anchored can increase the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 125 vehicles are affected by this recall.
