PACCAR Inc. (NASDAQ: PCAR) is recalling 35,671 Peterbilt trucks built over six model years because an electrical short circuit in a battery cable could lead to an underhood fire.

Just 1% of the 365, 389, 567 and 579 vehicles from the 2015-2020 model years being recalled are suspected of having a positive battery jumper terminal cable that may be too long, allowing it to chafe against the left front suspension spring.

The chafing can short circuit to the chassis ground and increase the risk of a vehicle underhood fire and crash, PACCAR told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
