All Products Associated with this Recall: 2010-2012 Mack CHU, 2010-2012 Mack CXU, 2010-2012 Mack GU, 2010-2012 Mack TD
Manufacturer: Mack Trucks, Inc.
SUMMARY: Mack Trucks, Inc. (Mack) is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 CHU, CXU, GU and TD vehicles manufactured June 16, 2009, through July 18, 2011. In the affected vehicles, the Electronic Power Distribution Module (EPDM) may be contaminated from water leaks in, and around, the windshield. If exposed to water leaks, contaminants such as road salts may deposit on the EPDM.
CONSEQUENCE: Deposits of contaminants may result in the circuits being bridged, creating a high resistance short, increasing the risk of a fire.
REMEDY: Mack will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the EPDM. If contamination has occurred, dealers will replace the EPDM and address the leak, free of charge. The recall will begin in late April 2014. Owners may contact Mack Trucks at 1-336-393-2000. Mack's number for this recall is SC0375.
NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
