Paccar Inc. announced a recall of 76,490 Peterbilt Motors Co. and Kenworth Truck Co. models citing the 15-inch digital display may freeze and not display critical safety information.

The truck maker estimated 1% of the recalled units will have the defect, which involves faulty software. The loss of display information, such as vehicle speed and warning lights, can increase the risk of a crash.

The fix is updated software.

The recalls — 22KWK and 22PBK — cover 2022-2023 Kenworth T680, T880 and W990, and Peterbilt 365, 367, 389, 567 and 579 vehicles, according to Bellevue, Wash.-based Paccar.

Dealers will update the software free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Dec. 16, the company noted. — Transport Topics
