Volvo has initiated one of its largest recalls ever for trucks in North America. A total of 125,000 vehicles manufactured after 2003 are to be brought in to repair a faulty electric component.

The problem lies with the lighting system's main circuit-breaker.

“If the problem isn't corrected, the lights may cease to function. The electrical system could also become too hot which can lead to smoke and fire,” said Volvo spokesman Tommy Kohle.
