General Motors is recalling 66 model year 2016 Chevrolet Malibus manufactured March 7, 2016, through March 12, 2016.
The memory chip in the electronic brake control module (EBCM) may fail and cause the loss of electronically controlled brake systems including anti-lock brakes (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC). As such, these vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems."
If the EBCM fails the primary braking system will still function, however, the loss of ABS and ESC increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a replacement EBCM, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on June 10, 2016.
Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020). GM's number for this recall is 39440.
