Shoguns recalled over trailer connection and a/c unit issues


Daimler Truck Australia Pacific has issued two recall notices for its Shogun range.

The first involves a defect due to improper programming of the vehicle’s trailer connection electrical control unit.

The hazard lamps, reverse lamps and backup alarm may activate when the lamps are not activated.

“If the hazard lamps, reverse lamps and backup alarm activate when not in use it may impact the safety of other traffic increasing the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users,” the notice said.

The variants impacted are FP74, FS72, FS76, FV70, and FV74 with 512 affected units in the year range 2021-22.

The second notice relates to a defect due to a manufacturing issue. The CGW (Central Gate Way) control unit attached to the rear of the blower for the air conditioning in the passenger compartment may corrode due to moisture leaking from the joints of the blower case.

This may lead to the engine to stall whilst driving resulting in a loss of motive power.

There are 918 units affected in the variants FP74, FS72, FS74, FS76, FU74, FV70, and FV74 in the year range 2019-22.

Owners of affected vehicles are asked to contact an authorised Daimler commercial vehicle dealership as soon as possible to have the work carried out free of charge.
