Navistar is recalling more than 17,000 International trucks due to a possible issue with the engine control module software, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

In the affected trucks, when the parking brake is applied and the automatic transmission is still in the drive or reverse position, and the stationary PTO switch is engaged by the operator, the engine may rev and overcome the parking brake’s ability to keep the vehicle from moving, Navistar says.

The recall affects about 17,213 of the following International models:

  • 2014-2020 International DuraStar
  • 2020-2021 International HV
  • 2019-2021 International MV
  • 2015-2018 International WorkStar

Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will update the parameters in the Cummins ECM for feature codes 12VXT or 12VXU that enables the PTO neutral interlock for free. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 20510. NHTSA’s recall number is 20V-810.
