This week, our favorite fix is for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee with a stuck parking-brake actuator.

The Vehicle:

2014 Jeep Cherokee

The Problem:

The vehicle’s passenger-side rear parking brake actuator was stuck. The vehicle had the following DTC’s: C008e-00 ECU Internal Performance, C10CD-01 Electronic Park Brake Switch—General Electrical Failure, and C10ED-00 Electronic Park Brake Switch LED.

The Diagnosis:

When the vehicle arrived, the passenger-side rear parking brake actuator was stuck. Per TSB 08-060-16, I checked the Electronic Parking Brake Module (EPM) and found water had come inside the module and corroded the harness side. I replaced the EPM and cleaned the connector. TSB requires you replace the harness connector; however, as it faces downward inside the vehicle it is therefore not subject to water intrusion like the EPM. Reflash requires OEM-level equipment or subscription. The TSB did not indicate the source of water intrusion. We took measures to prevent this situation from happening again by replacing the EPM.

The Solution:

Replaced the Electronic Parking Brake Module (EPM).
