These faults may be caused by a fuel vapor line inside the fuel take interfering with the fuel level sensor.

Power assist to the braking system may be lost due to a problem with the vacuum assist, disabling the hydraulic boost assist. If this were to occur increased brake pedal effort would be required to slow and stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software in the electronic brake control module to correct this concern. Affected vehicles are equipped with a 2.5L engine with the auto stop/start option.
