The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation into the trucks in May after receiving a report of a child starting a pickup without using the clutch. The truck moved forward, striking and killing another child, the safety agency said.

The company said Monday that a wire in the clutch ignition interlock switch could break in trucks with manual transmissions.
