  1. DEFECT #1 - SERVICE BRAKES, AIR: ANTILOCK: ABS WARNING LIGHT



    Description
    Pitts enterprises is recalling certain model year 2005 through 2008 flatbed tractor trailers, models lt, lp, lb-35, hd-35, ta, and pt, manufactured from august 2004 through october 2008, equipped with the msqr 5000 differential pressure regulator/quick release valve device manufactured by air brake systems.  The msqr 5000 does not contain the requisite warning light which fails to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no.  121, air brake systems.  

    Consequence
    The purpose of the federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) for air brake systems, no.  121, is to insure safe braking performance under normal and emergency conditions.  The msqr 5000, which was installed in the trailers subject to the recall to satisfy fmvss no.  121's abs requirements, does not meet the definition of an abs as required by fmvss no.  121.  Also, the trailers do not have a light to warn the operator of an abs malfunction as required by fmvss no.  121.  Pitts has received no complaints or reports of any onroad failures associated with this noncompliance.  

    Corrective Action
    Pitts enterprises will notify owners and dealers will replace the msqr 5000 system with a compliant system free of charge.  The safety recall began on august 5, 2011.  Owners may contact the sales department of pitts enterprises at 1-334-855-4754.
