Summary

Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Tec (Eaton Cummins) is recalling certain Endurant transmissions, part numbers EEO-17F112C, EEO-16F112C and EEO-18F112C and PACCAR transmissions, part numbers PO-14F112C, PO-15F112C, PO-16F112C, PO-17F112C and PO-18F112C. The transmission control module (TCM) may allow the engine to crank briefly even if the transmission shifter is not in neutral.

Remedy

Eaton Cummins will notify the affected vehicle manufacturers who will file and conduct recalls to install updated TCM software, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Eaton Cummins at 1-269-342-3184.
