The potential for an internal electrical short that may cause a blown fuse has led Navistar to recall 1,191 trucks.

The affected vehicles include the model year 2017 International ProStar, LoneStar, PayStar, HX, and 9900 trucks equipped with a Cummins ISX15L engine using certain engine control modules (ECM).

These ECMs may experience an internal electrical short that can cause a fuse to blow, resulting in an unexpected engine stall without the ability to restart the engine.

An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.

Cummins will notify owners, and Cummins dealers will replace the ECM free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin August 19, 2016.

For more information, owners may contact Cummins Customer Service at (800) 343-7357 or Navistar Customer Service at (331) 332-1590.
