Volvo recalls several 2016 VNs due to faulty ECMs

| 10/27/2015

One day after Cummins recalled Mack trucks equipped with its ISL G natural gas engine, Volvo Trucks North America has issued a recall of several new VNs due to an issue with the engine control module.

Certain 2016 Volvo VN trucks manufactured on Aug. 13, 2015, are affected by the recall. In affected trucks, Cummins engines have an ECM that may short circuit, resulting in a blown fuse. The defect can leave the engine stalling without warning.

On Oct. 26, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a recall of more than 3,000 Mack trucks. Certain Mack trucks with Cummins ISL G natural gas engines had a defect in the oil supply line, increasing the risk of a fire.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by Cummins. As of press time, there is no notification schedule. Cummins will replace the faulty engine control module for free. Drivers can contact Cummins at 800-343-7357, with the recall number C1698. Volvo can also be contacted with questions at 800-528-6586, with recall number RVXX1511.
