An electrical fault is prompting a recall from an engine manufacturer.

Cummins Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain ISB6.7, ISL9, ISX12 and ISX15 engines. The affected engines have an Engine Control Module (ECM) that may short circuit and blow a fuse resulting in the engine stalling without warning. An engine that stalls unexpectedly increases the risk of a crash.

The manufacturer believes that more than 800 of its engines, designed primarily for use in trucks or other larger vehicles, are potentially affected by this issue.

Cummins will notify owners, and dealers will replace any defective ECM with a remedy part, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 31, 2015.

Owners with questions about this recall should contact Cummins customer service at (800) 343-7357.
