NAVISTAR RECALL * USA: 2017 International ProStar & LoneStar, 9900i
* Illinois - Navistar recalls heavy diesel trucks to fix battery cover latch defect
Navistar is recalling 294 heavy diesel trucks because a battery cover latch defect could increase the risk of a fire... The truck recall includes 2017 International ProStar, LoneStar, 9900i, and manufactured between June 13, 2016 and Dec. 8, 2016... The affected trucks are equipped with a metallic battery cover latch that, if unlatched from its anchor, could contact the battery jump start stud. As a result, an electrical short to ground could occur if the protective cover for the jump start stud is not being used... This situation could lead to fire...
