On certain sport utility vehicles contamination of an anti-lock braking system (ABS) sensor can cause the ABS electronic control unit (ecu) to incorrectly interpret the sensor signal, resulting in inappropriate abs activation. This can lead to an increase in braking distance that is unanticipated by the driver. Correction: Dealers will install a new ECU.
On certain sport utility vehicles the accelerator cable could have become kinked during vehicle assembly, resulting in chaffing of the cable. Continued chaffing can lead to breakage of the interior cable strands. Breakage of the cable strands can result in the throttle being stuck in the open position, increasing the risk of a crash. Correction: Dealers will inspect and replace the damaged cables where necessary.
