Recalls - 2005 INTERNATIONAL 4000

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 2005 MY INTERNATIONAL 3300, 4000, AND CE SCHOOL AND TRANSIT BUSES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN MAY 24 AND AUGUST 17, 2004. THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL LIGHT AND INDICATOR LIGHT ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL MAY NOT ILLUMINATE DURING HAZARD OPERATION DUE TO AN INCORRECTLY MANUFACTURED SWITCH CONTACT THAT CAUSES INTERMITTENT CONTACT IN THE TURN SIGNAL STALK ASSEMBLY. THIS RESULTS IN INTERMITTENT LEFT TURN SIGNAL AND INDICATOR LIGHT OPERATION WHEN THE HAZARD SWITCH IS ACTIVATED.

INTERMITTENT LIGHT OPERATION REDUCES THE ABILITY TO WARN OTHER MOTORIST OF THE DRIVER'S INTENTIONS. THIS COULD CAUSE A VEHICLE CRASH WITHOUT WARNING THAT MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.
