Cummins Recalls Electric Drivetrain Systems Due to Faulty Shutdown Override Switch

Cummins recalled 30 Electric Drivetrain Systems, model number BES CM2450 EV101B, and part number D1U0001BX03 due to potential safety risk.

When a system shutdown occurs, the high voltage shutdown override switch may not function, with no warning to the driver.

An unexpected vehicle shutdown without the ability to override it, can increase the risk of a crash.

Dealers will inspect and update — as necessary — the parameter settings for the protection override switch free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed October 29, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
