WASHINGTON — PACCAR has issued a recall for 76,492 late-model Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks due to a faulty digital dash display.

Affected 2022 and 2023 models include Kenworth T680, T880 and W990 and Peterbilt 365, 367, 389, 567 and 579 vehicles equipped with a 15-inch display screen. The manufacturer estimates that about 1% of the recalled trucks are likely affected by the glitch.

On Oct. 18, PACCAR reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that the display can freeze, preventing the system from updating. The freeze can also mean a loss of current indicators and warnings, such as the speedometer and telltales, increasing the risk of a crash.

The NHTSA recall number is 22V-779. There have been no crashes related to the issue, according to the NHTSA. Paccar plans to install updated software in recalled trucks within 60 days. Owner and dealer notification is planned for Dec. 16.

Paccar told the NHTSA that it 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, and Stoneridge implemented a software fix Sept. 15.

How many more elec.safety concepts are they going to install on semi’s?My Walmart truck had on guard,while entering a tunnel on 1-10 a small car darted in front of. My truck,the system locked the truck up 2 times so fast I couldn’t prepare,it injured my thumb and index finger,which is now a trigger finger! Recording every reaction of drivers in safety sake has made trucking miserable.

My 2022 Peterbilt 389 has been to the dealership three times now for the dashboard freezing. They have done updates and now instead of freezing the screen goes black then will come back on after about thirty seconds.
