Defect SummaryOn certain trailers equipped with bendix ec-30t electronic control units (ecu). if the trailer-mounted abs warning lamp circuit experiences an electrical short and the short is not repaired, the high side power switch inside the ecu that controls the illumination of the trailer-mounted abs warning lamp may eventually become thermally stressed and experience an electrical short.
Consequence SummaryIf the power switch shorts, it can result in an over-current condition in the ecu and lead to excessive heat, smoke, and possible fire.
Corrective SummaryBendix will provide a remedy kit and detailed instructions and also provide a labor allowance for the repair. owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact bendix at 1-800-478-1793 or jacobsen at 1-559-834-5971.
