Capacity of Texas (Capacity) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 ISB13 Yard Tractors manufactured from September 1, 2013, through April 22, 2015. The affected vehicles were manufactured without a dimmer switch to control the backlighting illumination on the dashboard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Controls and Displays."
If the driver can not adjust the amount of dash illumination, the driver may not be able to easily see the dash controls. This distraction may increase the risk of a crash.
Capacity will notify owners, and fleets will install a switch with dimming capability, free of charge. The recall began on May 27, 2015. Owners may contact Capacity customer service at 1-800-323-0135.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
