Advisory details

On certain cutaway chassis vehicles equipped with 6.8L engines and optional trailer brake controllers, during tow operation, the integrated trailer brake controller may not actuate the trailer brakes when the driver depresses the brake pedal. There would be no warning to the driver that vehicle braking does not actuate the trailer brakes, which could increase stopping distances, potentially resulting in a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module. Note: This recall supersedes recall 2015-510. Vehicles repaired under the previous recall will require re-inspection and potential repair.
