Volvo Recalls Some Model 2017 VNL Trucks for Potential Electrical Short

Volvo Trucks North America is recalling certain model year 2017 VNL trucks manufactured March 15, 2016, to April 20, 2016, equipped with a Cummins ISX12 or ISX15 engine using certain engine control modules (ECM).

These ECM’s may experience an internal electrical short that can cause a fuse to blow, resulting in an unexpected engine stall without the ability to restart the engine. An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.

Cummins will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing ECM with a new ECM, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 7, 2016. Owners may contact Cummins customer service at (800) 343-7357or Volvo customer service at (800) 528-6586. Volvo’s number for this recall is RVXX1604.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration vehicle safety hotline at (888) 327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov.
