Cummins Recalls PowerDrive EV Electric Drivetrains Due to Faulty Power Steering Pump

Cummins recalled 329 PowerDrive EV part numbers 4000EV, 6000EV, and 7000EV electric drivetrains due to potential safety risk.

The drivetrain may experience an electromagnetic noise on the Control Area Network (CAN) bus, which can cause a loss of electrical power to the power steering pump.

A loss of assisted power steering increases the risk of a crash.

The remedy for this recall is still under development.

The recall is expected to begin June 19, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
