Manufacturer: Cequent Performance Products, Inc.

SUMMARY:

Cequent Performance Products is recalling certain Tekonsha Electric Trailer Brake Control Wiring Adapters with Part No. 30232-P and 30231-P. These adapters are used as aftermarket equipment on model year 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 vehicles. If the brakes are applied while the turn signal is activated, the turn signal may turn off. The opposite trailer turn signal may then activate.

CONSEQUENCE:
An incorrect turn signal will not properly notify others of the driver's intent (such as direction of a turn or lane change), increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Cequent will notify distributors, dealers, installers, and customers and will replace the adapters free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, August 16, 2013. Owners may contact Cequent at 1-877-827-0799.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
