2018 SPARTAN METROSTAR - EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS

Precision Industries (Precision) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Emergency Vehicles built on Spartan Metrostar chassis and equipped with Whelen brake lights recalled under 18E-063. Depending on the specific wiring of the vehicle, these brake lights may illuminate when the brake pedal has not been pressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

  • Hazard
    If the brake lights incorrectly illuminate, it can confuse other drivers, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    Precision will notify owners, and dealers will replace the lights, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Precision Industries customer service at 1-573-346-8387.
