2019 KENWORTH T680 - EXTERIOR LIGHTING

PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain 2013-2019 Kenworth T680 and T880 and Peterbilt 579 trucks, greater than 30 feet long and equipped with side extender mounted intermediate marker lamp/turn signals that do not include a reflex reflector. Since both intermediate side marker lamps and reflex reflectors are required, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

  • Hazard
    Missing reflex reflectors can reduce the vehicle's visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    PACCAR will notify owners and dealers will install reflex reflective tape, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 19, 2019. Owners may contact PACCAR customer service at 1-918-259-3258. PACCAR's number for this recall is 18KWF, and 18PBC.
