What are the defects?
In certain circumstances the underhood speed control deactivation switch mounted on the brake system may leak and brake fluid contamination in the electrical connector may cause the wiring to overheat, smoke or burn. This condition may occur either when the vehicle is parked or when it is being operated, even if the speed control is not in use.
What are the hazards?
A leaking speed control deactivation switch could result in an underhood fire.
