Summary:
      ON CERTAIN FEDERAL EXPRESS "FED-EX" TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH HALDEX ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM "ABS" ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT "ECU" VALVES, THE VALVES NEED TO BE MODIFIED IN ORDER TO RELOCATE THE VALVES IN AN UPRIGHT POSITION. THE VALVES CONTAIN A BALL SEAT PISTON THAT MAY BECOME DISLODGED DURING AN ABS EVENT AND NOT PERFORM PROPERLY.
Consequence:
      DRIVERS WOULD NOT BE WARNED OF A BRAKE SYSTEM FAILURE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
      GREAT DANE IS WORKING WITH FED-EX TO REPLACE THE ABS VALVES FREE OF CHARGE. FED-EX HAS DEAD-LINED THESE VEHICLES UNTIL THE REPAIR HAS BEEN PERFORMED.
