2019 DARLEY FIRE APPARATUS - EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS

W.S. Darley & Co. (Darley) is recalling certain 2017-2019 WASP fire trucks built on a Ford F-550 or Spartan Metro Star chassis equipped with Whelen brake lights. Depending on the specific wiring of the vehicle, these brake lights may illuminate when the brake pedal is not being pressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective devices, and Assoc. Equipment."

  • Hazard
    If the brake lights incorrectly illuminate, it may confuse other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    Darley has notified owners and will provide replacement brake lights, free of charge. The recall began March 4, 2019. Owners may contact Darley customer service at 1-800-634-7812.
