Certain vehicles may have been originally equipped with a brake master cylinder reservoir cap that could leak. The same vehicles were previously involved in campaign 2007107 to address potentially missing or misplaced seals in the wiring harness connector to the ABS module electronic control unit. If this repair was not done properly, and if fluid leaks from the reservoir cap, the fluid could corrode the ABS module electrical connector, which could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the reservoir cap and modify the ABS electrical system.
