3/27/2024 – 4/9/2024 – Cummins requested the failed parts from the OEM for failure analysis. Cummins initiated and completed an investigation into the cause of the leaks. A preliminary fault tree analysis identified insufficient crimping of the hose fitting as the most likely cause of leaks.

4/10/2024 – 4/29/2024 – Cummins continued to investigate the issue and determined that the cause of the fuel leaks was insufficient crimping of the connector.

4/29/24 – 5/1/24 – Cummins conducted a product safety investigation. A warranty search identified 15 warranty claims with failure dates between 6/9/2023 and 4/17/2024 for fuel leaks involving engines equipped with these options. Cummins conducted a Product Safety Hazard Analysis to evaluate the potential safety risk on fielded units.

05/7/2024 -5/14/2024 – Cummins escalated the issue through its Product Safety Defect Determination Process.

5/14/2024 – Based upon the results of the investigation, the Cummins Product Safety Defect Board decided to conduct a safety campaign to address this condition. To date, there have been no reports of fires, accidents or injuries related to this issue.
