If the account was secured by what ever was purchased, then it is likely to be repossessed, and regular collection procedures will begin to collect any remaining balance. If the account is unsecured, collections will begin against the guarantor or primary on the account. It is possible that the guarantor may be able to get all or part of the debt covered by any funds available from the cosigner's estate, but this would likely require the assistance of an estate attorney.
