February 12, 2009

Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
CHRYSLER / SEBRING 2009
DODGE / AVENGER 2009

Manufacturer: CHRYSLER LLC Mfr’s Report Date: FEB 03, 2009
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 09V047000 N/A NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER:STORAGE:FUEL GAUGE SYSTEM
Potential Number of Units Affected: 92


Summary: CHRYSLER IS RECALLING 92 2009 SEBRING AND DODGE AVENGER EQUIPPED WITH 2.4L ENGINE PASSENGER VEHICLES. A COMPATIBILITY ISSUE BETWEEN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER SOFTWARE AND FUEL PUMP MODULE CAN RESULT IN THE FUEL GAUGE OVERSTATING THE ACTUAL FUEL TANK LEVEL. AS A RESULT, THE VEHICLE MAY RUN OUT OF FUEL WHEN THE GAUGE INDICATES THAT THERE IS STILL FUEL REMAINING IN THE TANK.

Consequence: THIS COULD CAUSE A CRASH WITHOUT WARNING.

Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP MODULE FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING FEBRUARY 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.
