Brake light issue causes Navistar recall


Navistar has issued a recall of about 13,570 International HX and LT models for an issue with the brake lights, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

The recall affects model years 2018-2021 International HX tractors and model years 2019-2020 International LT models. In the affected trucks, the brake light switch may have a weak solder joint, possibly resulting in poor electrical contact with brake lights that don’t work or that stay on.

Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake light switch for free. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 20501. NHTSA’s recall number is 20V-160.
