Statement: Connector

April 21, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -


FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 23,879 vans in the U.S. to relocate an electrical connector to further protect it from excessive moisture intrusion.

Snow buildup or inordinate water accumulation near the front of the driver-side seat track may expose a connector to excessive moisture intrusion. Over time, such a condition may cause corrosion and potentially affect signals sent to a vehicle’s transmission control module. Disrupted signals may cause an unrequested shift to neutral when the vehicle is brought to a stop.

FCA US discovered the issue following a routine review of warranty data. The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Affected are model year 2015-2016 Ram ProMaster City vans. An additional 3,050 vehicles are being recalled in Canada.

Customers will be advised when they may schedule service. FCA US urges customers to follow the instructions on their recall notices.

In the interim, customers are advised to protect the driver-side footwells of their vehicles from excessive moisture. Those with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.

RECALL Subject : Water Intrusion of the Communication Connector

Report Receipt Date: APR 11, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V202000
Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM , POWER TRAIN
Potential Number of Units Affected: 26,867


Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)

SUMMARY:

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Ram ProMaster City vans manufactured September 26, 2014, to March 5, 2016. A low-voltage electrical harness connector by the front driver seat may be susceptible to water intrusion and corrosion. Corrosion may result in a loss of communication to the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and may cause the transmission to unexpectedly shift into and stay in neutral without warning the next time that the vehicle stops.
CONSEQUENCE:
An unintended shift into neutral will prevent the vehicle from being moved. Additionally, if the driver turns off the engine, the driver will be unable to restart the engine. Both scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the harness connector to under the instrument panel, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S24.
