Recalls - 2002 INTERNATIONAL 4400

What is a recall? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, generally in cooperation with the vehicle manufacturer, issues recalls when a motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment (including tires) does not comply with a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or when there is a safety-related defect in the vehicle or equipment. Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner. Please contact your service facilities for additional details and to confirm that this recall is relevant to your particular vehicle.

Defect Description

CERTAIN TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH ENGINE STARTERS (CODE 08WWN OR 08WWP) BUILT BY LEECE-NEVILLE. THESE STARTERS HAVE A DEFECTIVE TERMINAL ADAPTER STUD. THE STUD IS USED ONLY AT THE POSITIVE BATTERY CONNECTION TO THE STARTER SOLENOID. IT WAS DESIGNED TO BE SCREWED ON OVER THE EXISTING STUD TO INCREASE THE STUD DIAMETER TO ACCOMMODATE THE LARGER SIZE OF THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE TERMINAL. THE ADAPTER STUD WAS WEAKENED WHEN THE HOLE WAS DRILLED TOO DEEP.

Defect Consequence

THIS COULD LEAD TO A DIRECT ELECTRICAL SHORT TO THE BATTERIES. IF THE STUD BREAKS OFF, THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE COULD SHORT DIRECTLY TO GROUND, WHICH CAN GENERATE HEAT AND SPARKS CAUSING A FIRE.

Defect Corrective Action

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ADAPTER STUD. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN APRIL 15, 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT INTERNATIONAL AT 1-800-448-7825.
