Paccar is recalling 76,492 late-model, US-market Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks because the digital dash can freeze.

A freezing dash prevents the system from updating and increases the chance of a crash.

Paccar said about 1% of recalled trucks probably have the issue.

Affected 2022 and 2023 models include the Kenworth T680, T880 and W990 and the Peterbilt 365, 367, 389, 567 and 579.

Paccar found 57 warranty claims from May 2021 to September 2022 related to the digital dash system supplied by Stoneridge Inc. Paccar learned of the issue in August. Stoneridge implemented a software fix on 15 September.

The truck maker reported no crashes or injuries related to the issue.

Paccar plans to install updated software in recalled trucks within 60 days.
