Cummins preps for July ISX ECM recall

June 23, 2016
Recall affects ECMs on ISX12 and ISX15 engines built between March and April this year.

Faulty engine control modules (ECMs) on certain Cummins ISX12 and ISX15 truck engines are being recalled by the OEM, with notifications expected to begin on July 7 this year.

In a filing with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), Cummins said ECM part number 4358814 on ISX12 and ECM part numbers 5317106 and 4358814 on ISX15 engines manufactured from March 7 through April 12 this year will be recalled as they may short circuit and blow a fuse, resulting in the engine stalling without warning.

If this occurs, the engine cannot be restarted until the ECM and fuse are replaced, Cummins noted.

The OEM added that it will replace existing ECMs on those engines with a new ECM, free of charge, starting July 7.
