Defect SummaryVehicle description: heavy duty trucks equipped with fd1060 and fd1460 diesel engines and optional manual fuel shutoff systems. the hand control of the manual fuel shutoff system, mounted on the vehicle's instrument panel, is labeled with the words shutoff fuel lock, and these words are not illuminated other than by the cab's interior lights. this does not comply with the requirements of fmvss no. 101, controls and displays.
Consequence SummaryDue to the lack of illumination and incomplete labeling of the manual fuel shutoff system, a driver may not identify the hand control to shut off fuel supply to the engine.
Corrective SummaryDealers will replace the manual fuel shutoff system with the standard automatic key-off fuel control system.
