The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Chrysler is recalling certain 2021-2023 Ram 1500 and 2023 Ram 2500 vehicles. The trailer reverse steering control module (TRSCM) may prevent the rearview image from displaying when the vehicle is placed in reverse. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, "Rear Visibility." A rearview image that does not display while in reverse decreases the driver's visibility of the rear view, increasing the risk of injury or crash. NHTSA says potentially 68,809 units are affected by the recall.
- Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2023 F-150 vehicles. The instrument panel top cover on the passenger-side may prevent the air bag from deploying as intended. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." An air bag that does not deploy as intended increases the risk of injury in a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,352 units are affected by the recall.
- Jayco is recalling certain 2019-2023 Entegra Launch, Launch LE, Qwest, Jayco Melbourne, Melbourne Prestige, Terrain, and Terrain LE motorhomes. The guide bushing on the parking pawl may fatigue, which can cause the parking pawl not to engage and result in a vehicle rollaway. Vehicle rollaway increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,845 units are affected by the recall.
- Nikola Corporation is recalling certain 2022 TRE BEV vehicles. The shaft locking screw on the brake pedal may be missing or may not be fully threaded, which can cause the brake pedal to detach. A detached brake pedal can cause a loss of pedal function, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 137 units are affected by the recall.
- Paccar is recalling certain 2021-2024 Kenworth T280, T380, T480, Peterbilt 536, 537, and 548 vehicles. When the brake pedal is fully applied and then released rapidly, the pedal plunger that connects the brake pedal to the brake valve may become disconnected, causing the service brakes to fail. Service brake failure can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 8,008 units are affected by the recall.
