Freightliner Recalls Cascadia for Crash Danger
Report Receipt Date: MAR 18, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V099000 
Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM , EXTERIOR LIGHTING 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 42,823 

SUMMARY:
Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Freightliner Cascadia tractors manufactured from May 7, 2012, through March 2, 2013 and equipped with a SAMCAB software version 6.2. On vehicles configured to have the turn signals operate as Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and the 'Turn-Tip' turn signal function activated, the DRLs may not illuminate properly after using the 'Turn-Tip' function while driving.
CONSEQUENCE:
Failure of the DRLs to illuminate reduces visibility to other drivers and increases the risk of a vehicle crash.
