Potential Number Of Units Affected : 2586

Summary:
ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, DUE TO THE USE OF FAULTY FRONT WHEEL SPEED SENSORS, A DISTURBANCE OF THE SIGNAL CAN OCCUR.

UNTIL THE SYSTEM CAN DETECT THE DISTURBANCE AS A FAULTY SIGNAL AND THE FAULT-CODES ARE SET IN THE BRAKE CONTROL MODULE, A NUMBER OF NODES INCLUDING BRAKE, ENGINE, TRANSMISSION, AND TORQUE DISTRIBUTION CONTROL UNITS READ THE FAULTY SIGNAL AS IF IT WERE CORRECT. THIS MAY RESULT IN FUNCTION DISTURBANCES.

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
