Brake Lights May Randomly Illuminate/FMVSS 108

If the brake lights incorrectly illuminate, it can confuse other drivers, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Altec Industries, Inc is recalling certain 2017-2018 Digger Derrick, Aerial Devices, and Service Body vehicles, equipped with Whelen accessory brake lights.

Remedy

Altec will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake lights, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 6, 2019. Owners may contact Altec customer service at 1-877-462-5832. Altec's number for this recall is CSN 708.
