Report Receipt Date: NOV 02, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V797000
Component(s): VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL
Potential Number of Units Affected: 25,018


Manufacturer: Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc. (Isuzu) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Isuzu NPR and NPR HD vehicles manufactured August 26, 2013, to November 11, 2016, and 2016 Chevrolet Low Cab Forward 3500 HD, 4500HD, and 4500XD vehicles manufactured July 27, 2016, to November 11, 2016. The affected vehicles have a throttle pedal that may get stuck under the steel stopper bolt, causing the pedal to remain in the full throttle position.
CONSEQUENCE:
A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.
REMEDY:
Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will remove and replace the stopper bolt with a flanged plate, to prevent lateral movement of the throttle, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 14, 2016. Owners may contact Isuzu customer service at 1-866-441-9638. Note: These vehicles are equipped with a brake override system. In the event that the accelerator pedal is trapped, pushing on the brake pedal will brake the vehicle and enable the driver to slow and stop and turn off the vehicle.

Potential Number of Units Affected 264

Summary

Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc. (Isuzu) is recalling certain 2019 Isuzu NPR-HD, NPR-XD, NQR, NRR, Chevrolet 4500HD, 4500XD, 5500HD, and 5500XD. The odometer accurately measures the distance traveled in miles, but erroneously indicates that they are kilometers in the LCD display instead of miles.

Remedy


Isuzu will notify customers and dealers to inspect the odometer LCD on their vehicle. If the distance traveled is listed as 'mi' (miles), the customer or dealer will be requested to inform Isuzu and the recall for that vehicle will be deemed complete. If the distance is listed as 'km' (kilometers), the customer will be requested to take the vehicle to the dealer, and the dealer will replace the meter cluster with one that indicates 'mi' (miles). The new odometer will be reprogrammed to reflect the number of miles traveled that was indicated on the original odometer. The recall is expected to begin in March 2019. Isuzu owners may contact Isuzu customer service at 1-866-441-9638, GM owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-862-4389.
