OTTAWA, Ont. — Canadians running a 1998 to 2001 model-year International 9000I or 5000I should heed a recent recall notice issued by Transport Canada.

More than 7,100 of the heavy-duty trucks have a potentially serious flaw when operating in winter temperatures. In below freezing operating conditions, the air-pressure actuated brake light switch mounted outside the cab on the front cowl, may not light during normal braking.

The situation could result in a failure of the brake lights, which could easily result in a rear-end crash.

If you have one of the affected rigs, see your dealer, who will replace all air brake stop light switches.
