The brake lights on the affected trucks may not illuminate when the driver applies the brakes. As a result, other drivers will not be aware if the vehicle is stopping. This can increase the risk of a collision, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

No crashes or injuries associated with this defect have been reported.

To fix the problem mechanics will inspect and replace brake light switches labeled with the code 08-01760.

Paccar has not yet provided a specific notification date for the vehicle owners.
