Forest River, Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 StarTrans P/S2 transit buses manufactured January 19, 2016, to May 2, 2016, and model year 2016-2017 Glaval Legacy transit buses manufactured November 9, 2015, to August 4, 2016, equipped with ICU3 instrument clusters and hydraulic brakes. In the event of a brake malfunction, these clusters may illuminate the Brake System Malfunction telltale/indicator lamp with the word "PARK" instead of the word "BRAKE". As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 101, "Control and Displays," and number 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems."
If the word "PARK" illuminates instead of the word "BRAKE," the driver may be unaware of a braking issue or malfunction, increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River will notify owners, and Daimler Trucks North America LLC "DTNA" authorized service facilities will replace the ICU3 dash instrument clusters, free of charge. An interim notice was mailed to owners on November 23, 2016. Owners may contact StarTrans customer service at 1-574-642-3112, Glaval customer service at 1-574-343-5167, or DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-10022016-0252.
