These ABS actuators may have been assembled with a gear pump containing a damaged O-ring resulting in a lack of brake fluid pressure.
ADVICS North America, Inc. (ADVICS) is recalling certain antil-lock brake system (ABS) Actuators manufactured December 4, 2014, to December 23, 2014. These ABS actuators may have contamination in the solenoid valves, potentially affecting the valves ability to completely close and allow a build up of hydraulic brake pressure, or fully open and allow the hydraulic brake pressure to completely drop.
ADVICS IS RECALLING CERTAIN BRAKE MASTER CYLINDERS INSTALLED AS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT IN CERTAIN TOYOTA AND HONDA PASSENGER VEHICLES. BRAKE FLUID CONTAINING POLYMERS IS USED THAT ACTS AS A LUBRICANT FOR CERTAIN BRAKE SYSTEM COMPONENTS. IF REPLACEMENT BRAKE FLUID IS USED THAT DOES NOT CONTAIN SUCH POLYMERS, OR THAT CONTAINS ONLY SMALL AMOUNTS, A PART OF THE RUBBER SEAL LOCATED AT THE REAR OF THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER MAY BECOME DRY, AND THE SEAL MAY CURL DURING MOVEMENT OF THE PISTON. IF THIS OCCURS, A SMALL AMOUNT OF BRAKE FLUID COULD SLOWLY LEAK FROM THE SEAL INTO THE BRAKE BOOSTER.
