Subject: FCCC Chassis Rear PDM

Models Affected: Specific model years 2016-2023 Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation X-Line chassis manufactured November 23, 2015, through December 7, 2021, and equipped with a certain PDM.

General Information

Daimler Truck North America LLC (DTNA), on behalf of its wholly owned subsidiary, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC), has decided that a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety exists on the vehicles mentioned above.

FCCC X-Line chassis, equipped with a certain rear mounted Power Distribution Module (PDM), may experience cracked internal solder joints, which after a period of vehicle use may lead to intermittent open circuits, in which the rear marker, brake lights, or left turn signal lights may not function.

Chronology :

This matter involves several related and overlapping recall campaigns. On June 18, 2020, NHTSA notified DTNA of one vehicle owner questionnaire (VOQ) and two field complaints that may be related to a then open recall campaign, FL-788 (NHTSA Campaign No. 18V-582). Given the data and NHTSA’s direction, DTNA opened an investigation to reevaluate the scope of that recall, which it did at an expedited pace. Out of an abundance of caution, to further promote safety, and following NHTSA’s express instructions to the company, DTNA hastened to issue a recall, and did so on an expedited basis and before understanding the root cause, issuing a second recall campaign FL-856 (NHTSA Campaign No. 20V-404) in July 2020. In determining the population for this recall, DTNA used the supplier’s best available information of end-dates, which it had no good faith reason to dispute. Those recall campaigns proceeded in accordance with applicable law, DTNA continued to monitor the matters, and DTNA and NHTSA continued their ongoing communication regarding the matters. Later, in July 2021, a dealer notified DTNA of a potential failed PDM in a vehicle built after DTNA reasonably believed the unknown production problem had been resolved. DTNA did not reasonably believe a safety-related issue was presented. Later, in September 2021 a second dealer reported an alleged PDM failure in a vehicle that had received the recall remedy in FL-856. Now presented with a alleged second incident, DTNA proactively began to investigate the matter afresh, including to determine if the incidents were from the same problem recurring, a different problem, or a mix, as well as ensuring the adequacy of the FL-856 remedy. Taking all reasonable, good faith efforts to understand the issue, DTNA recovered and analyzed failed PDMs in Fall 2021 as part of its investigation, albeit with the limited data and parts available. Chronology continued in PDF attachment.
