REASON FOR PROVIDING EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE

In some of the affected vehicles, the reductant heater and sender assembly may fail causing the malfunction indictor lamp (MIL) to illuminate and, in some instances, may cause the engine to go into a reduced power de-rate strategy. If this condition exists, diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) related to the reductant heater and sender assembly will be present in the powertrain control module.
