Summary:
      Daimler Trucks North America, LLC "DTNA" is recalling certain 2020 Freightliner Cascadia vehicles equipped with an ICU3S Instrument Cluster and a DT12 automated manual transmission. When the transmission is shifted out of the Neutral "N" position, the instrument cluster will continue to display the "N" position.
Consequence:
      The incorrect gear selection display may cause the operator to falsely assume that the truck is in neutral, possibly resulting in the truck moving unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Daimler Trucks North America "DTNA" will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the powertrain controller so that the correct gear selection displays in the instrument cluster, free of charge. The recall began August 7,2019. Owners can contact DTNA's customer service at 1-800-745-8000. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-808.
