Cummins recall affecting Volvo VNLs

The Cummins recall of more than 5,400 ISX12 and ISX15 engines involves 129 Volvo truck owners with 2017 Volvo VNLs.

Volvo is the first heavy-truck manufacturer identified to be part of the Cummins recall of more than 5,000 ISX12 and ISX15 engines. The recall will specifically address a defect with the engine control module that may develop an internal electrical short circuit, possibly resulting in the engine stalling without warning, according to the NHTSA recall notice.

The Volvo trucks specifically affected by the recall have either the Cummins ISX12 or Cummins ISX15 engines and were manufactured between March 15 and April 20.

Cummins will be notifying the owners of the trucks, and dealers will replace the existing ECM with a new one, free of charge. The recall is expected to start July 7, according to the NHTSA recall.

Owners may contact Cummins customer service at 800-343-7357 or Volvo customer service at 800-528-6586. Volvo’s number for this recall is RVXX1604.
