Custom Fab & Body LLC "Custom Fab & Body" is recalling certain 2018 Ford F-650 XLT Crew Cab, 2017-2018 International 7500 4x4, and 2018 International 7500 4x2, Freightliner M2-112 and M2-106, and Kenworth T-370-based emergency vehicles equipped with Whelen brake lights. 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."
If the brake lights incorrectly illuminate, it can confuse other drivers, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.
Custom Fab & Body has notified owners, instructing them to contact Whelen for replacement lights, free of charge. The recall began April 11, 2019. Owners may contact Whelen customer service at 1-860-526-9504.
