Recall Alert: 2011-2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango
Statement: Vanity-Mirror Wiring
December 24, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -
FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 352,831 SUVs in the U.S. to help ensure vanity-mirror wiring may be serviced more consistently.
Overheating conditions were reported among a small percentage of vehicles (<0.02%) serviced in connection with a related recall, conducted previously.** An FCA US LLC investigation discovered the service procedure, if not followed precisely, may leave vehicles susceptible to a short-circuit, creating a potential fire hazard.
The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents. Post-service overheating conditions were observed only in vehicles equipped with a certain wiring package. These vehicles were produced before Sept. 2, 2012.
Affected are model-year 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs produced before Sept. 2, 2012. Wiring in the headliners of these vehicles will be secured with a new adhesive. Measures will also be taken to help prevent the wiring from contacting potentially abrasive surfaces.
Overheating conditions have not occurred in vehicles that have not had service involving headliner removal. However, FCA US urges affected customers to heed the instructions in their recall notices.
Customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be performed free of charge.
An estimated 26,487 vehicles will be recalled in Canada, as well as 13,037 in Mexico and 84,330 outside the NAFTA region.
Customers with additional questions may call the Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-853-1403.
