THESE ARE ALL LOW OR NO -SPEED EVENTS.

2004-12-09 (Published by NHTSA on 2004-12-09)
Recall Summary: ON CERTAIN FIRE TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH THE ALL WHEEL STEER OPTION, THE POSITION OF THE FRONT AXLE IS SENSED BY AN OPTICAL ENCODER MOUNTED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FRONT AXLE KINGPIN, WHICH IS PROTECTED FROM THE ELEMENTS BY AN OUTER CASE. THIS CASE SHARES A COMMON GREASE CAVITY WITH THE KINGPIN. OIL THAT LEACHES FROM THE GREASE CAN MIGRATE THROUGH THE ENCODER SEAL, CAUSING CONTAMINATION OF THE OPTICAL ENCODER DISC.
Hazard: OIL ON THE DISC CAN CAUSE THE ENCODER TO SEND INCORRECT WHEEL POSITION INFORMATION AND CAN CAUSE THE REAR WHEELS TO STEER UNEXPECTEDLY CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO CRASH WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING.
Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ENCODERS WITH NEW ENCODERS WITH MORE ROBUST SEALS. THE CONTROL SOFTWARE WILL BE UPDATED TO PRODUCE AN ERROR CODE AND DISABLE THE REAR STEERING FUNCTION IF UNUSUAL ENCODER INPUTS ARE DETECTED. THE RECALL BEGAN JANUARY 25, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT PIERCE AT 1-888-974-3723.
Additional Info: CUSTOMERS CAN ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

2003-10-20 (Published by NHTSA on 2003-10-20)
Recall Summary: ON CERTAIN FIRE TRUCKS WITH TANDEM STEER AXLES. THE TRW TIE-ROD ON THE REAR-MOST AXLE OF A TANDEM AXLE IS RESTRAINED FROM ROTATIONAL MOVEMENT BY A PAIR OF ANTI-ROTATION SEALS LOCATED AT THE BALL SOCKET JOINTS. THESE ANTI-ROTATION SEALS WILL COMPRESS OVER TIME. IF THE ANTI-ROTATION SEAL ALLOWS TOO MUCH MOTION, THE SEALS CAN DETERIORATE, ALLOWING CONTACT BETWEEN THE BALL SOCKET AND THE BALL SHAFT. THIS METAL-TO-METAL CONTACT WILL TRANSMIT FORCES INTO THE TIE-ROD TUBE, CAUSING FATIGUE FAILURE INITIATING AT THE ROOT OF THE FEMALE TREADS.
Hazard: FAILURE OF THE TIE-ROD WILL ALLOW ONE OF THE WHEELS TO SWING TO THE LIMIT OF ITS STEERING STOP, POTENTIALLY CAUSING A LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE TIE ROD. NOTIFICATION TO OWNERS BEGAN NOVEMBER 7, 2003. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT PIERCE AT 1-888-974-3723.
Additional Info: CUSTOMERS CAN ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).
