WASHINGTON - Daimler Trucks North America is recalling more than 400 MY 2008-2009 Sterling 360 trucks because of an overheating and fire risk.
The trucks covered by the recall were manufactured from Aug. 8, 2007 through July 31, 2008, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The ground harness connector for the ABS hydraulic unit may become corroded because of intrusion, potentially causing the ABS hydraulic motor to run continuously. As a result, the ABS hydraulic motor may overheat, potentially posing a fire risk.
To remedy the problem, the ground sub-harness will be replaced with a properly waterproofed harness. The ABS hydraulic unit and the connector terminals will be inspected for damage and corrosion. If necessary, they will be replaced free of charge.
The safety recall is expected to begin around mid-August.
Owners can reach Daimler Trucks at (800) 547-0712.
