Recall Alert : 2003-2006 Daimler Vans

RECALL Subject : BRAKE Indicator Lamp Inoperative/FMVSS 105

Report Receipt Date: NOV 17, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V833000
Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM , SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
Potential Number of Units Affected: 17,501

Manufacturer: Daimler Vans USA, LLC

SUMMARY:
Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling certain model year 2003-2006 Dodge and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vans manufactured June 30, 2003, to August 31, 2006. The instrument cluster on the affected vehicles fails to illuminate the BRAKE warning lamp in the instrument cluster during the vehicle start up bulb-function check. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems."
CONSEQUENCE:
Without the BRAKE lamp illuminating during the vehicle start up bulb-function check, the driver has no confirmation that the lamp is working and therefore may not know whether or not the lamp will illuminate if the brake fluid level is low. If the operator is unaware that the vehicle has low brake fluid, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
DVUSA will notify owners, and DVUSA and Dodge dealers will correct the instrument cluster software, as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-770-705-2070.
