Horizon Global is recalling 2,285 Tekonsha Prodigy RF Electronic Brake Control with Bluetooth kits, part number 902501, and certain Hand Held units, Part No. 90253.
The recalled products were sold separately as replacements to be used with the 902501 sold for use on for 1 to 3 axle trailers.
The brake control kit and its informational materials do not adequately instruct the operator that trailer brake functionality via foot pedal is unavailable when used in conjunction with certain 7-Way Trailer Connectors, while the tow vehicle's 4-Way Hazard Warning Signals are activated.
The manual hand-held override trailer braking continues to function as intended.
If a driver of a vehicle equipped with certain 7-way trailer connectors is not aware that trailer braking via foot pedal is unavailable while the 4-Way Hazard Warning Signals are in use, a delay in applying the manual hand-held brake may increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Horizon will notify owners and dealers, and will provide a replacement part that provides notice/indicators to the driver when foot pedal braking is unavailable, along with updated instructions free of charge.
This recall is expected to begin June 9, 2020.
Owners may contact Horizon customer service at (877) 973-7871.
