Electric Parking Brake Inoperative
This bulletin announces a new replacement EPB actuator assembly to address DTC C0251. In isolated cases, the automatic calibration function of the EPB actuator may not always occur when turning the ignition on. As a temporary result, the EPB may not function, the brake system warning lamp will ﬂash to alert the driver, and DTC C0251 will be stored in memory. The EPB will resume normal operation on the next key cycle.
