Recall Alert: Tire Pressure Monitors

Statement: Tire Pressure Monitors

October 30, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

Chrysler Group is voluntarily recalling an estimated 33,443 light trucks in two separate campaigns to prevent false warnings from Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) systems.

The Company is unaware of any injuries or accidents associated with either.

One campaign will upgrade software that helps TPM sensors recognize from which tire pressure data is coming. Absent such capability, a warning light may falsely signal that tire pressure is low. And if the light is already activated, the system may not properly alert vehicle occupants if tire pressure actually becomes low.

Affected are an estimated 23,053 Ram ProMaster full-size vans from model-year 2014. All are in the U.S.

The second campaign will reconfigure a TPM module to disable a test mode that was inadvertently left on following shipment from the supplier. When installed in a vehicle, a TPM module configured this way may not get accurate tire-pressure readings, which could result in a false warning.

Affected are an estimated 10,390 Jeep Wrangler SUVs and Dodge Grand Caravan/Chrysler Town & Country minivans from model-year 2014. All are in the U.S.

Owners of all vehicles implicated in the two recalls will be notified next month and advised when they may schedule service, the cost of which will be borne by Chrysler Group.

Customers with questions may call Chrysler Group’s Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
