Recall Alert: 2014 Jeep Cherokee SUVs

Statement: Control Module

August 31, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 158,671 SUVs in the U.S. to help protect their control modules from static buildup that may potentially disable the vehicles’ windshield wipers.

An investigation by FCA US discovered static buildup may occur if the vehicles’ windshield wipers are activated during dry conditions. Significant static buildup may affect a control module that powers the wipers.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Affected are model-year 2014 Jeep Cherokee SUVs. An estimated 18,366 vehicles will be recalled in Canada, as will an estimated 3,582 in Mexico and 26,049 outside the NAFTA region.

Dealers will install a ground strap to the control module to eliminate the potential for static buildup. Customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be performed at no cost.

Customers with concerns may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Jeep Cherokee Recalled for Faulty Windshield Wipers

Jeep Cherokee Recalled for Faulty Windshield Wipers

Aug 31, 2015

The Jeep Cherokee is being recalled again, this time for having faulty windshield wipers.

According to the American automaker, static buildup can occur if the driver uses the windshield wipers in dry conditions, causing significant buildup that can affect the control module powering the wipers. As a result, the control module that powers the wipers can disable the wiper function altogether.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the recall, which covers approximately 159,000 vehicles sold in the U.S. all from the 2014 model year.


To fix the issue, service technicians will install a ground strap to the control module, helping eliminate the possibility of static buildup.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been listed in five other recall campaigns for issues ranging from infotainment security to unintended airbag deployment.
