Penske recalls 410 Western Star trucks

Penske Australia has issued a recall notice for 410 Western Star trucks due to a manufacturing issue. 

The manufacturer has warned that an incorrectly routed power cable could contact a ground stud of the vehicle and short circuit, which could increase the risk of overheating and a vehicle fire. 

All variants within the X-Series 3-Axle range, released between the years 2022-2023, are affected.  

The vehicle identification numbers can be found here.  

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their preferred Western Star dealer to arrange to have the necessary rectification carried out and to have the parts ordered prior to your arrival, free of charge.

Last month, Daimler Truck Australia Pacific recalled 533 Fuso Shoguns due to a power distribution module wiring harness defect.

The affected units are in the year range 2021-22 and the variants are FP7, FS7, FU7 and FV7.

The recall notice said the power distribution module wiring harness may have been connected incorrectly to the positive and negative fuse and relay box terminals.

As a result, a mounting bracket could interfere with the wiring, causing the power distribution module to short circuit, which could result in a vehicle fire.

Owners of affected vehicles are advised to contact their nearest authorised Daimler commercial vehicle dealership to arrange to have the work carried out, free of charge.
