Daimler Trucks North America is recalling nearly 3,000 model-year 2019-2021 Western Star 4700 and 5700 vehicles. A particular wire in the ground harness may be undersized, possibly resulting in a melted connector in the ground circuit harness, according to the recall.
If the connector becomes damaged, under certain circumstances, the engine may stall without the ability to restart.
DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ground harness, free of charge. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at (800) 547-0712.
This recall is expected to begin July 16, 2020. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-852.
