RE: Safety Recall — Part 573 — Brake Light (Whelen Engineering- part PSROOXRR)

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Recall #: 18E-063

Dear

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Highway Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. \Vhelen Engineering Co., Inc. has detected a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety in brake lights manufactured from November 1, 2017 to May 16, 2018. Your vehicle is included in this range.

 

What is the concern?

The brake light may activate if there is transient voltage on the brake input line (e.g., without further brake input), but can be retumed to nonnal operation when a brake input is applied and then removed. \Vhelen detennined that the root cause of this condition was tied to transient voltage on the input line creating a false and steady activation of the brake light. The condition is dependent on the specific wiring of the vehicle and other installed equipment. The product fimctions nonnally if it is not exposed to these specific conditions.

 

What should you do?

With the vehicle running and all lights activated examine your 3rd brake light which is installed on the rear of the apparatus directly above the hose reel and below the directional light bar. If the brake light activates without the brake pedal being pushed, contact Blanchat Mfg., Inc. and we will ship you a replacement.

I have included the NHTSA Safety Recall Repon from umelen Engineering. If you have any additional questions or concems, please contact Blanchat Mfg., Inc. 620-896-7145 or sales@blanchatmfg.com.

Sincerely,

Greg Blanchat
President/Owner
