Anti Lock Brake System And Electronic Stability Control System Malfunction

Recall Details

The anti-lock brake system and electronic stability control system may stop working due to water intrusion damaging the control module. Dealers will seal the system wiring harness to prevent water from entering it and will replace the related module and repair related wiring harnesses as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The anti-lock brake system and electronic stability control system may stop working because of water damage to the module that controls both functions. This could result in a loss of vehicle stability or control.
