Recall for Freightliners with DD15 engine

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) has posted a recall notice on behalf of Mercedes-Benz Australia/ Pacific regarding a potential electrical fault with Freightliner Coronado and Argosy trucks fitted with Detroit Diesel DD15 engines.

According to the ACCC notice, on Freightliners equipped with DD15 engines the bolt attaching a rubber isolator to a support bracket may come loose and back out, potentially contacting an unfused starter cable and creating a short circuit.

The potential problem is said to involve 175 vehicles powered by the DD15. Cummins powered trucks are not affected by the recall.

A letter has been sent to owners of the affected vehicles who are urged to contact their nearest Mercedes-Benz dealer as soon as possible so the fault can be rectified.
