rickaren July 6, 2019 — Chrysler is recalling its 2014 Jeep Cherokee SUVs equipped with 3.2-liter engines because the transmissions may unexpectedly shift into neutral.

Fiat Chrysler (FCA) says the transmission software may shift the transmission into neutral if the clutch gets stuck in the transmission.

The automaker says 91,650 Cherokees are affected by the recall, something that allegedly can be fixed by updating the transmission software.

Chrysler opened an internal investigation in May 2019 after hearing from engineers about transmissions shifting into neutral.

Engineers found a stuck valve in the transmission valve body can prevent clutch deactivation and result in a transmission-commanded shift to neutral. This will cause the Cherokee to suddenly lose the ability to continue forward no matter how fast the SUV is traveling.

FCA doesn't know of any crashes or injuries related to the transmission problem, but hundreds of field reports and more than 3,000 warranty claims have been received.

In the U.S., 81,165 Cherokees are recalled and another 10,485 SUVs are recalled in Canada.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokees were built in Toledo between February 27, 2013, and July 11, 2014.

The recall is expected to begin August 2, 2019, but Cherokee owners may contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is V69.

rickaren July 5, 2019 — A 2019 Jeep Renegade recall for 745 vehicles is needed to repair airbag problems in Renegades equipped with Upland trim packages.

Fiat Chrysler says the occupant restraint controllers may not have been calibrated correctly, causing the airbags to deploy incorrectly in crash impacts.

Chrysler says a frontal collision below 16 mph but sufficient enough to trigger a low-output airbag deployment may cause the airbag to deploy at high output.

Instead of the airbag protecting an occupant in a low-speed crash, the airbag could cause more harm than the crash.

Chrysler expected to begin contacting Jeep Renegade owners July 31, 2019, then dealers will reprogram the occupant restraint controllers.

Model year 2019 Jeep Renegade owners may call the automaker at 800-853-1403. Chrysler's Jeep Renegade recall number is V73.

Statement: Module

Statement: Module
June 7, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US is voluntarily recalling an estimated 295,981 vehicles in the U.S. to help ensure the function of certain restraint systems.

An FCA US investigation discovered certain vehicles are equipped with occupant restraint control modules that may not properly reset when their engines are turned off. This software error may inadvertently disable air bags and seat belt pretensioners, making these devices unavailable in a collision.

Data collected by FCA US indicate the potential for such an event is highly remote. Further, the Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Nevertheless, FCA US is conducting this recall out of an abundance of caution and urges customers, as always, to follow the instructions on their recall notices.

Affected are certain model-year 2019 Ram 1500 pickups, nearly one-third of which are still in dealer hands. Twenty-six model-year 2020 vehicles also are in the recall population, but these are pre-production trucks in the Company’s control.

Service, which is free of charge, is expected to be available this month. Customers will be advised accordingly; those with questions may call 1-800-853-1403.

If a vehicle has exhibited the defect, an instrument-panel warning light may illuminate. Technicians will replace modules in such cases; otherwise, they will update the module’s software.

Additional vehicles will be subject to recall in Canada (est. 38,884), Mexico (est. 1,817) and certain markets outside North America (est. 6,154).

ORC May Malfunction and Disable Safety Functions

Disabled air bags and seat belt pretensioners increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Summary

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2019-2020 Ram 1500 vehicles. The flash memory of the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) may become corrupted, disabling the vehicle's air bags and seat belt pretensioners.

Remedy


Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the ORC or replace it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 20, 2019. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's numbers for this recall are V61 and V71.

rickaren June 2, 2019 — Fiat Chrysler (FCA) is recalling more than 17,000 model year 2018-2019 Ram 1500 trucks because the driveshafts may break due to weld problems.

FCA opened an investigation in August 2018 after receiving six warranty claims for busted driveshafts that were built within a month of each other, and all the vehicles had less than 5,000 miles.

The supplier found problems with the welds where the tubes and yokes interfaced, but by December 2018 no additional broken driveshafts were reported.

In January 2019, the automaker learned about two more busted driveshafts that were built in the same range as the previous broken driveshafts. The supplier found the same weld problems, but this time higher mileage trucks were involved.

Although warranty claims and complaints have been received, Chrysler says it isn't aware of any crashes or injuries related to the broken driveshafts.

A driver may hear noise or feel vibrations prior to the weld completely separating.

The 4x4 Ram 1500s were built between March 16, 2018, and April 20, 2018, with 10,160 of the recalled trucks in the U.S., and another 6,686 recalled in Canada.

The Ram 1500 driveshaft recall will begin June 15, 2019, when dealers will replace the rear driveshafts.

If you own a 2018-2019 Ram 1500 and want to learn more about the driveshaft recall, please call FCA at 800-853-1403 and mention recall number V48.

Recall Alert: 2015-2017 RAM

Statement: Power Lock Actuator Control Assembly
May 17, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 410,351 U.S.-market pickup trucks to upgrade their tailgate locking mechanisms.

An investigation by FCA US discovered the power locking mechanisms in the tailgates of these pickups share a small internal component that may break over time. If this were to happen, a vehicle’s tailgate may unlatch.

Trucks equipped with manual tailgate locks also are excluded.

Notifications advising customers to schedule service are expected to be mailed this month. In the interim, FCA US reminds that all loose cargo should be secured while driving, as stated in the operating manuals of the affected vehicles.

Further, FCA US pickups offer alternate features to accommodate load security, such as tie-down rings, cleats, high-friction bed-liners, bulkhead dividers, and bed-extenders.

FCA US urges all customers to heed recall notices. Those who have questions may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
