Fiat Chrysler to recall nearly 700,000 SUVs for electrical fault risk

11/21/2019


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCHA.MI) said on Thursday it will recall nearly 700,000 sport utility vehicles worldwide because a faulty electrical connection could prevent engine starts or contribute to a stall.


The recall, covering 2011 through 2013 model year Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs, will address silicon deposits on the contact points of fuel pump relays that may interrupt electrical current, Fiat Chrysler said in a statement. It said it is unaware of any injuries or accidents related to the faulty vehicles.

The Italian-American automaker had previously recalled most of the same SUVs in 2014 and 2015 for issues with their fuel pump relays.

The company, which last month announced it planned to merge with Peugeot owner PSA (PEUP.PA), said it would notify owners at a later date when they will be able to schedule repairs at dealerships.

The recall includes around 528,500 vehicles in the United States, 34,700 in Canada, 18,100 in Mexico and 116,500 outside North America, it said.

November 21, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 528,594 SUVs in the U.S. to help ensure the integrity of an electrical connection.

Statement: Bushings


November 27, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 51,788 cars in the U.S. to replace their shift-cable bushings.

Feedback from the field prompted an FCA investigation that discovered certain bushings may, subject to heat and humidity exposure, degrade over time. Should this occur, a vehicle’s shift cable may separate from its transmission linkage, disrupting shifter function.

FCA is aware of three minor accidents that were potentially related, but the Company is unaware of any potentially related injuries.

If the condition occurs, customers may notice looser shifter movement. However, gear-selection as indicated in the instrument cluster will always be correct.

Customers are advised to heed owner’s manual instructions that urge regular parking-brake use.

The recall is limited to 2012-2013 Fiat 500 mini-compact cars. Service will be provided free of charge and affected customers will be notified accordingly; those with questions or concerns may call 1-800-853-1403.


Additional vehicles will be subject to recall in Canada (est. 10,627), Mexico (est. 3,520) and certain market outside North America (est. 6,826)
