Description ON CERTAIN TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH A TRW TILT/TELESCOPING STEERING COLUMN, THE TILT LOCKING MECHANISM ON THE STEERING COLUMN MAY DISENGAGE. THIS COULD PREVENT THE STEERING COLUMN FROM LOCKING IN TO PREDETERMINED POSITIONS.
Consequences SHOULD THE LOCKING MECHANISM DISENGAGE, THE TILTING TRAVEL OF THE COLUMN WOULD BE UNRESTRICTED. THIS UNRESTRICTED TRAVEL ALLOWS THE STEERING WHEEL TO IMPACT THE DASH AND COULD LIMIT THE MOVEMENT OF THE STEERING WHEEL POTENTIALLY RESULTING IN DIFFICULTY MANEUVERING THE VEHICLE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
