Defect SummaryBendix is recalling certain atr-6 traction relay valves produced from december 2, 2010, through january 18, 2012. the valves were sold as aftermarket service parts and installed as original equipment by various vehicle manufacturers. due to a design modification, in extremely cold conditions, internal leakage can potentially develop, resulting in pressure being delivered to the affected service brake circuit.
Consequence SummaryIf pressure is delivered to the service brake circuits, intermittent or continued brake application may occur without warning and possibly without illuminating the brake lights. either condition may increase the risk of a crash.
Corrective SummaryBendix will notify owners who purchased the affected atr-6 traction relay valves as aftermarket parts. vehicle manufacturers will notify their owners. bendix will provide a remedy free of charge. a temporary fix is available while the manufacturer develops a permanent remedy. the permanent remedy has been developed and parts will begin to be available by may 7, 2012. owners may contact bendix at 1-440-329-9000 or their vehicle manufacturer.
