Manufacturer: PACCAR Incorporated

SUMMARY:

PACCAR is recalling certain model year 2014 Kenworth T470 and T800 trucks manufactured January 1, 2013, through January 22, 2013. A parameter in the Electronic Service Analysis (ESA) tool was mistakenly switched to disable the start-in-gear protection feature. Because of this, the vehicles may be started when the automatic transmission is in gear.

CONSEQUENCE:

If the vehicle is started while it is in gear, it may move unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.
